Pogues, The - Pachinko Lyrics




I'm walking down Roppongi
The night is hot and smoggy
I drink a little coffee
A sake and a beer
I run into a ginja man
He speaks but I don't understand
He grins at me and takes my hand
And whispers in my ear

[Chorus:]
I play Deji Pachi
I play Deji Pachi
I play Deji Pachi
In my Pachinko dream
I go Uchi Domi
I go Uchi Domi
I go Uchi Domi
In my Pachinko dream

My senses all asunder
I stand and stare in wonder
There's bright light and there's thunder
In Pachinko land

Well versed in the way of Zen
My pockets lined full of yen
I walk the aisle and back again
And sit at Domo's hand

[Chorus]

I'm on the lexus fever
My hand tight on the lever
I'm shrieking like a diva
Staring in a trance

Turn the handle to the right
A stream of silver balls in flight
It screams and howls a blaze of light
The earth moves below me
I'm laughing tears of sheer delight
As I go Uchi Domi

[Chorus]

    I simply love this song

  2. Markyisamonkey

    I was walking through Tokyo yesterday and saw the Pachinko halls. I just started singing this to myself. I haven't listened to it in ages.

  3. Joshua Ballard

    That one poor soul, that disliked this.

    SO... I love this song. Reminds me of when my mom used to drive us around in the falling apart Jeep, never heard so many good tunes... I go to find out the meaning of "Uchi Domi" means "Fever" a mode that Pachinko machines snap into when you're doing awesome. The site I learned that from Also went on to say "For what it's worth, I really really hate this song. In my personal opinion, it is the worst thing the band ever recorded. There, I feel better now." - Author - "The Parting Glass" WTFman

    今から20数年前に聴いた時は衝撃的だった。あの頃、三味線を洋楽っぽく使うなんて日本のほとんどすべての人が思ってもいなかったような気がしたものです。このアルバムではモンゴルのホーミーやら世界中の音をまとめたかったのかなあとか、やべー欧米なんて思ったものです。
    その頃からずっと聴いてきたお気に入りの一枚。
