“Formosa Diner” Lyrics

Down at the diner
Formosa diner
The people line up in the evenin’ sun
They’re wantin’ wanton
They’re wantin’ eggrolls
They’re wantin’ plum sauce and the Peking duck

But then the diner
Formosa diner
It weaves its magic, and they can’t sit still

Up on the tables
Pirouetting to the hypnotizing beat
All inhibitions gone
They’re leaping wildly seat to seat to seat

Just what it is, no one can tell
Somehow the food just casts its spell
But you can bet the patrons keep it to themselves
Watch it

Down at the diner
Formosa diner
Biz “One Shot” Gojo takes a booth near the wall
He waits for Tanya
The lovely Tanya
He orders dumplings sitting in a red hot sauce

But then the diner
Formosa diner
It weaves its magic, and he can’t sit still

Up on the table
Pirouetting to the hypnotizing beat
All inhibitions gone
He’s leaping wildly seat to seat to seat

Just what it is, no one can tell
Somehow the food just casts its spell
But you can bet the patrons keep it to themselves
Now watch it
