China Girl (aka China Girls) is a Iggy Pop/David Bowie composition.  The original version of the song was covered by Iggy Pop during his detox phase (David Bowie helped him kick his horse habit and they worked together on this song) and it's a little more explicit in detail.  Bowie's version is a little more veiled but the song theme remains the same as the song's character is total infatuated with this "china girl" and would give her anything to be with her.  I love how the video has nothing to do with the song.
