    Dusty Springfield - "Checkmate" Lyrics

    Queen to your King
    Don't be afraid to move away to safety
    I know you well, I can tell when your heart is feelin' lonely
    I've seen those knights in armour guardin' your door
    Oh, but I'm gonna keep on comin' 'til you can't move no more

    You can bait me, fake me, yeah
    But I keep on comin' at ya
    You break me, shake me, yeah
    I ain't movin' backwards
    Shake me, take me, yeah
    I keep on goin'
    'Til I hold you in checkmate once more, mmm

    I'm a Queen to your King
    Yes, I've been told that you use your pawn to hurt me
    Oh, nothing's been gained
    Oh, I can see that your Bishop's lies then wonders
    Oh, if he could stop me with the power he holds
    It ties me, it ties me over with his prison, his goal

    You can bait me, fake me
    But I keep on comin' at ya
    Just break me, shake me
    I ain't movin' backwards
    Shake me, take me, yeah
    I keep goin' 'til I hold you in checkmate once more
    Ooh, 'til I hold you in checkmate once more

    Bait me, fake me, aah
    But I keep comin' at ya
    Break me, shake me, aah
    I ain't movin', I ain't movin', I ain't movin'
    Oh, but I keep comin' at ya
    Take me, shake me
    I ain't movin', I ain't movin' backgrounds, yeah
    I ain't movin', 'cause I ain't movin' backwards, yeah, oh
    I ain't movin', oh, I keep on comin' at ya
    Yeah, aah, yeah, I ain't movin', yeah
    Break me, shake me, yeah
    I keep on comin' at ya
    I ain't movin', I ain't movin' backwards
    I ain't movin, I ain't movin

    Duncan Sheik - "Mr. Chess" Lyrics

    So good to meet you Mr. Chess
    I've always heard that you're the best
    At housing knights
    and castles high up in the air

    So I beseech you, Mr. Chess
    To let me sleep inside your bed
    and would you sleep too?
    Would you sleep too
    in the chair?

    You see, I dream of many things.
    Of floating solitary kings
    of pawns and people
    with blue sequins in their hair

    the jester sings
    the bishop brings the Queen
    a hollow following
    and all the pawns and people stop
    and people stare

    so i too stop at three o'clock
    i stumble to your door and knock
    and ask to see you, ask to be you
    Mr. Chess
    Oh Mr. Chess
    My Mr. Chess

    Now I beseech you Mr. Chess
    To let me sleep to let me rest
    To let me dream, to let me sing
    without a care
    I would dream you things so fair
    i'll sing you castles in the air

    and i would sleep too
    i would sleep too
    i will rest
    Oh Mr. Chess
    My Mr. Chess

    Song: One Night in Bangkok Lyrics
    [THE AMERICAN]
    Bangkok, Oriental setting
    And the city don't know that the city is getting
    The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
    Show with everything but Yul Brynner

    Time flies -- doesn't seem a minute
    Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
    All change -- don't you know that when you
    Play at this level there's no ordinary venue

    It's Iceland -- or the Philippines -- or Hastings -- or --
    or this place!

    [COMPANY]
    One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
    The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
    You'll find a god in every golden cloister
    And if you're lucky then the god's a she
    I can feel an angel sliding up to me

    [THE AMERICAN]
    One town's very like another
    When your head's down over your pieces, brother

    [COMPANY]
    It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity
    To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

    [THE AMERICAN]
    Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town --

    [COMPANY]
    Tea, girls, warm, sweet
    Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

    [THE AMERICAN]
    Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
    Whose every move's among the purest
    I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

    [COMPANY]
    One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
    Not much between despair and ecstasy
    One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
    Can't be too careful with your company
    I can feel the devil walking next to me

    [THE AMERICAN]
    Siam's gonna be the witness
    To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
    This grips me more than would a
    Muddy old river or reclining Buddha

    And thank God I'm only watching the game -- controlling it --

    I don't see you guys rating
    The kind of mate I'm contemplating
    I'd let you watch, I would invite you
    But the queens we use would not excite you

    So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage
    parlours --

    [COMPANY]
    One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
    The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
    You'll find a god in every golden cloister
    A little flesh, a little history
    I can feel an angel sliding up to me

    One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
    Not much between despair and ecstasy
    One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
    Can't be too careful with your company
    I can feel the devil walking next to me
