Winter's cityside 
Crystal bits of snowflakes 
All around my head and in the wind 
I had no illusions 
That I'd ever find a glimpse 
Of summer's heatwaves in your eyes 
You did what you did to me 
Now it's history, I see 
Here's my comeback on the road again 
Things will happen while they can 
I will wait here for my man tonight 
It's easy when you're big in Japan 

Aah when you're big in Japan-tonight... 
Big in Japan-be-tight...
Big in Japan...ooh the eastern sea's so blue 
Big in Japan-alright
Pay! - Then I'll sleep by your side 
Things are easy when you're big in Japan 
Oh when you're big in Japan 

Neon on my naked skin, passing silhouettes 
Of strange illuminated mannequins 
Shall I stay here at the zoo 
Or should I go and change my point of view 
For other ugly scenes 
You did what you did to me 
Now it's history I see 
Here's my comeback on the road again 
Things will happen while they can 
I will wait here for my man tonight 
It's easy when you're big in Japan 

Aah when you're big in Japan-tonight... 
Big in Japan-be-tight... 
Big in Japan...ooh the eastern sea's so blue 
Big in Japan-alright, pay! 
Then I'll sleep by your side 
Things are easy when you're big in Japan
