Girl with a Green Vespa

Bianca with a broken wing
No love song left for her to sing
As the nights go on
Wishes she were gone
On adventure far and long

Little did she know today
Memory would fad away
When at Lorenzo's store
She rolls right out the door
And thinks of him no more

Her green, verde green vintage GranTuriSimo
Gleams as it hums by Palazzo Vecchio, Vecchio!

Awaken to an orange sunrise
Pack the side car with formaggio and wine
As it sped away
He's alone at the Cafe'
She's the one that got away

One Man Woman

I’m a one man woman (she’s a one man woman)
I’m a one man woman (she’s a one man woman)
I’m a one man woman cuz I aint got time for two

Break out the cocktail shaker
And I’ll shake my money maker
I’m the crème de la crème, I'm just what you’re looking for

Well you can keep one eye open
Despite the words that I’ve spoken
But it aint gonna do you no good
Cuz wait till I show you
How much you’d miss me
If you wine and dine and then start in to kiss me

I’m a one man woman (she’s a one man woman)
I’m a one man woman (she’s a one man woman)
I’m a one man woman cuz I aint got time for two

Under the Live Oak Tree

Swayin' in the breeze under the live oak tree
Spanish moss a hangin where the white wings sing
A sea of stars across the sky shine tenderly
On my lonestar sweetheart and me

Lazy smoke a rollin off some ol' mesquite
Sippin slowly on a glass of sun sweet tea
Baby leans in close to steal a kiss from me
Under the live oak tree

Blue bonnets bloomin'
Bloomin' all around like an indigo sea
The night's for swoonin
Swoon so sweet a melody
Stay right here just you and me
So long as there will always be

Armadillas scootin' through the briar patch
Lookin mighty fine in that ten gallon hat
We can live off oysters picked fresh from the sea
Under the live oak tree . . .
Under the live oak tree

Run Lola!

Way down in Old Monterey
Miss Lola, she lived by the bay
She called for her lover to go with her brother
Mercado del Mar break of day

Boats they came in one by one
Lola's brother, he brandished a gun
Her lover soon had the notion this fish from the ocean
Was Coca Columbian

Run Lola Run
Run Lola Run
Over the sand as fast as you can
Run Lola Run

Lola heard bullets flying
Saw her lover was lying
Among pampanos and mahi, bluefins and snapper
Whose color was that of him dying

O'er waves of the sea she could hear
Soft whispers into her ear
Oh be brave my lover I knew not your brother
A bad man we both should fear

Run Lola Run
Run Lola Run
Over the sand as fast as you can
Run Lola Run

The lover took Lola's hand
In dropped a gold wedding band
Fish in the sea they say there are plenty
Lola's best catch was this man

Run Lola Run
Run Lola Run
Over the sand as fast as you can
Run Lola Run

Run Lola Run
Run Lola Run
Over the sand as fast as you can
Run Lola Run

Over the sand as fast as you can
Run Lola Run

Honey for Happy Hour

Been good each day, the whole week through
You never met an angel so true
Come Friday afternoon, gonna let down my hair
Shake up some sauce, they say it’s Five somewhere

Give me honey for happy hour
Set me up a Sip of Sunshine
When my man gets home
If there’s one thing I know
A little honey keeps me happy
Like a dog loves a bone

(Interlude)

Give me honey for happy hour
Set me up a Sip of Sunshine
When my man gets home
If he’s gonna survive
A little honey keeps me happy
I’m the queen of the hive

Spendin' time playing that old guitar
Turn the light low and take me high as the stars
Give me honey for happy hour
There aint nothing sweeter
Than the nectar from the flower

Give me honey for happy hour
There aint nothing sweeter
Than the nectar from the flower
There aint nothing sweeter
Than the nectar from the flower
Honey for happy hour

Raven

Steal me like a Raven
Disguised in ebony
Take to the skies where lies our destiny

Rise to your tower haven
By the light of the waning moon
There we will fly as one on blackened plume

Soon we'll dive on wings of desire
That burn with the flames of a thousand fires
Lost in a spin as the thrill begins
Should I give in

Gently you release me
Side by side into night we soar
My love ever yours as the poets pen amore

Papaya Lover

Mama she told me don’t worry you’ve got to give it time
Good things grow slow like fruit on the vine
Love will come to you

Papa he taught me be patient, don’t pick the first one you see
It might not be ready to come off the tree
Let your love be true

You got the sweetest lovin like a ripe papaya
Just a little juicy taste and I’m a girl fire
Over the tree tops your love keeps me sending me higher

Brothers and Sisters don’t shake the tree till the fruit is ripe
Wait till it blooms like a moonflower at night
Love comes naturally

Listen my friends in this life there is only one truth to gain
Like seeds that we sow need both sun and rain
Love is what we need

When I met you baby you made life taste sweet
I’m your Luci You’re my Desi the other part of me
No matter what comes you’ll always be my favorite treat

You got the sweetest lovin like a ripe papaya
Just a little juicy taste and I’m a girl fire
Over the tree tops your love keeps me sending me higher

You got the sweetest lovin like a ripe papaya
Just a little juicy taste and I’m a girl fire
Over the tree tops your love keeps me sending me higher
Over the tree tops your love keeps me sending me higher
Higher, higher, higher

Dark and Stormy

Feelin kinda restless in my cabana
I need to feel the rhythm, El Tropicana Dominicana

I can hear guitars start to strumba
I gotta move I gotta groove, give me a rumba

The band is swingin late night in the Cantina
They say come down and dance a tango, LaCumparsita Senorita

It was a dark and stormy night
A night with thunderous cries and lightning strikes
A night when tides rose high and the moon hung low
Another night like that I’ll never know

I feel his gaze upon me cross the floor
He comes a little closer He wants to know me more

As we begin to sway, the wind grows stronger
Don’t wanna go I wanna stay, a little longer at the Milonga

It was a wild and wonderous night
A night when lovers woo by candelight
A night we stole away to a secret place
And felt the thrill of loves first embrace

When the tempest fades, what of our love?
Our song will play once more when skies roar drumfire from above

It was a dark and stormy night
A night with thunderous cries and lightning strikes
A night when tides rose high and the moon hung low
Another night like that I’ll never know

It was a wild and wonderous night
A night when lovers woo by candelight
A night we stole away to a secret place
And felt the thrill of loves first embrace

It was a dark and stormy night
A night with thunderous cries and lightning strikes
A night when tides rose high and the moon hung low
Another night like that I’ll never know
Another night like that I’ll never know
