  • Look for a while at the china cat sunflower
    Proud walking jingle in the midnight sun
    Copperdome bodhi drip a silver kimono
    Like a crazy quilt star gown through a dream night wind

    Na na na, na na na
    Na na na, na na na
    Ooh, oh, oh

    Crazy cat peekin' through a lace bandanna
    Like a one-eyed cheshire, like a diamond-eye jack
    A leaf of all colors plays a golden-string fiddle
    To a double-e waterfall over my back

    Na na na, na na na
    Na na na, na na na
    Ooh, oh, oh

    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat

    Comic book colors on a violin river cryin' leonardo
    Words from out a silk trombone
    I rang a silent bell, beneath a shower of pearls
    In the eagle-winged palace of the queen chinee

    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
    China cat, china cat
