every night is quite the same
i'm a stranger at the shangri-la
all the kids of local fame
they all hang down at the shangri-la

and i don't know anyone
but i'm still having fun
at the shangri-la

i'm just wasting time away
in the shelter of the shangri-la
watch the freaks all swing and sway
to the music at the shangri-la

if it were elsewhere there'd be a fight
but all the fighters are getting high
at the shangri-la

the night is ending awful fast
nothing lasts down at the shangri-la
careless lovers holding hands
they're getting action yeah
and that's enough

i'm going home i need to rest my eyes
but i'll be back again tomorrow night
at the shangri-la

at the shangri-la
