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

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


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

  1. Mary Tennant

    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.


    How can we remove dislikes?

    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
