Mekong Lyrics - The Refreshments

Review The Song (2)



Barkeep
Another Mekong please
Yes of course,
you can keep the change

A new glass here
for this new friend of mine
Forgive me, I forgot your name
Flip a coin
What shall we talk about
Heads I tell the truth
and tails I lie

Well I came all the way
From Taipei today
Now Bangkok's pouring rain
and I'm going blind again
And I haven't seen my girl
sponsored links
for fifteen thousand miles

But is it true
It's always happy hour here
and if it is I'd
like to stay a while
Well as cliche as it may sound
I'd like to raise another round
And if your bottle's empty
Help yourself to mine
Thank you for your time
And here's to life

Barkeep
We need to go around again
One for me and what's his name
My new best friend
Deal me in and I'll
pick my cards up off the floor
I'll see a lucky coin
And raise a pack of lies

Smile to the girl at the door
Another 4 dollar whore
But don't look her in the eyes
She'll break your heart

We came all the way
From Taipei today
Still Bangkok's pissin' rain
and we're going blind again
And I haven't seen my girl
in fifteen thousand miles

Well is it true
It's always happy hour here
And if it is I'd
like to stay a while
Well as cliche as it may sound
I'd like to raise another round
And if your bottle's empty
Help yourself to mine
Thank you for your time
And here's to life

Well is it true
It's always happy hour here
And if it is I'd
like to stay a while
Well as cliche as it may sound
I'd like to raise another round
And if your bottle's empty
Help yourself to mine
Thank you for your time

Well as cliche as it may sound
I'd like to raise another round
And if your bottle's empty
Help yourself to mine
Thank you for your time

And here's to life
Here's to life
Here's to life
Here's to life
Again

discover the music of Roger Clyne (of The Refreshments) still being rocked live for all to enjoy! | Reviewer: Alisa in Tempe | 11/26/2007

For all of you Refreshments fans, be sad no more! I just heard all the Refreshments classics at the Marquee Theater in Tempe, AZ last weekend as performed by the awesome and amazing Roger Clyne and PH Naffah in their band, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers. They played Mekong at the end of the night and everyone just sang and swayed and smiled and closed out the night of having our souls rocked to the core. Amazing! Go to www.azpeacemakers.com



one of the best songs ever | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/11/2007

(sigh) I love the refreshments. I only wish I could have seen them in concert. I didn't really get into these guys until after they had broken up, but this entire album has really stood the test of time in my eyes. My musical tastes have evolved a great deal, but when I can't decide on something newer to listen to, this album is always one of my go to's...
