All Hien's bags are packed (maybe - he probably forgot something important like his passport...)
Hien's ready to go (except he forgot to set the alarm...)
Hien's standing there outside your door (hoping you'll give him a ride to the airport)
Hien hates to wake you up to say goodbye (doesn't mind waking you up for a ride though...)
But the dawn is breakin' (means he hasn't been to bed yet...)
It's early morn (see above comment...)
The taxi's waitin' (smart thinking - calling a taxi for him so you can sleep in...)
He's blowin' his horn (because someone isn't paying attention...)
Already Hien's so lonesome (too late to cancel the plans now...)
Hien could die (okay, I didn't write these lyrics - I would have written "cry" instead. I think he'll live...)

Insert Purdy singing the chorus here...

Who is Hien?

Quoting wjignie

Yes, the day has finally arrived. The day of a new embarkment of a so-called World Tour. The day where one of my fav cuz, who is also a damn good procrastinator, is leaving his home land to fulfill his dream. Miss him? Not yet, i guess. Anyway, bet most of us back here are gonna miss him for a very very very long time.

Hien, don't forget us ya. Please remember to post a postcard or two EVERY WEEK!!!
We won't mind surprises too. You can send souvenirs anytime you want LAH...

Also please post more pictures and updates of you from time to time. Don't go MIA ya.

All the best & HAVE GREAT FUN!!!

Do you guys have any idea on how to replace Hien while he's gone for a very very very long time?

Who is Hien?

A stranger in a strange land.

Yeah, I can see it now
The distant red neon shivered in the heat
I was feeling like a stranger in
a strange land

You know where people play games
with the night
God, it was too hot to sleep
I followed the sound of a jukebox coming from up the levee
All of a sudden I could hear somebody whistling
From right behind me
I turned around and she said
"Why do you always end up down at
Nick's Cafe?"
I said "I don't know, the wind just kind of pushed me this way."
She said "Hang the rich."

Catch the blue train
To places never been
before
Look for me
Somewhere down the crazy river
Catch the blue train
All the way to Kokomo
You can find me
Somewhere down the crazy river

I knew I heard that phrase somewhere before

Don't forget the musical contributions of Leon Russell & The Shelter People, U2, Iron Maiden and last but not least - Barbara Streisand. (Though Barbara's was written by the Gibbs Brothers - aka The BeeGees.)

Now I have "feel like a stranger in a sraaaange land" stuck in my head. Just the one line! Arrrgh! I though it was from an Eric Burden and War song, but I can't find it anywhere.

Help, Isa!!!

And, errr, back to our regular-scheduled programming!

The only Burden & War song that may have a similar line in it would be "You're No Stranger" but no one has the lyrics.

Here - I'll help get that line out of your head - instead go for:

Why can't we be friends
Why can't we be friends
Why can't we be friends
Why can't we be friends

I seen ya, I seen ya, I seen ya 'round for a long long time
I really, I really, I really remember when you drank my wine

Be careful - Hien is a lush and will try to steal your wine!!!
