May I know the title of the song that has the lyrics going "when eastern boy meets western girl" or something that sounds like "eastern" or "western". I think the voice singing sounds like pet shop boys.

West End Girls by The Pet Shop Boys
Sometimes you're better of dead.
There's a gun in your hand
and it's pointing at your head.
You think you're mad, too unstable,
kicking in chairs and knocking down tables
in a restaurant in a West End town.
Call the police, there's a mad man around.
Running down underground
to a dive bar in a West End town.
In a West End town, a dead end world,
the East End boys and West End girls.
In a West End town, a dead end world.
the East End boys and West End girls,
West End girls.
Too many shadows, whispering voices,
faces on posters, too many choices.
If, when, why, what?
How much have you got?
Have you got it? Do you get it? If so, how often?
And which do you choose, a hard or soft option?
(How much do you need?)
In a West End town, a dead end world,
the East End boys and West End girls.
In a West End town, a dead end world.
the East End boys and West End girls,
West End girls.
You've got a heart of glass or a heart of stone.
Just you wait till I get you home.
We've got no future, we've got no past,
here today, built to last.
In every city, in every nation
from Lake Geneva to the Finland station.
(How far have you been?)
In a West End town, a dead end world,
the East End boys and West End girls.
In a West End town, a dead end world.
the East End boys and West End girls,
West End girls.

I'd just go to www.google.com and search for "lyrics west end girls". Then copy and paste. I certainly hope Thomas didn't actually type all that in.

I was getting worried for a second, Thomas! I wasn't sure which was worse, the fact that someone wanted to know the lyrics or the fact that someone else actually KNEW the lyrics! I will confess to remembering the tune, but that's all I'm saying!
