On the horizon the curtains are closing

Down in the orchard, the aunties and uncles play their games

(Like it seems they always have done)

In the blue distance, the vertical offices bear their names

(Like it seems they always have done)
G                                     A#                 A
Clocks ticking slowly, dividing the day up.

These poor girls are such fun,
                                                                                      A/F
They know what God gave them their fingers for

(to make percussion over so-los) [typing percussion]
C                                                                                        
               A/F
China, my China, I've wandered around and you're still here
                A                 F                 A         F
(Which I guess you should be proud of)
