Balada Par Un Loco

Afternoon in Buenos Aires...
you know? You see?
You leave your house on Arenales,
like always... a part of the street...
when suddenly...
from behind a tree... I appear!

A strange mix of the last hobo,
and the first stowaway on a flight to Venus.
Half a melon on my head,
a striped shirt painted on my skin,
leather soles nailed to the bottom of my feet,
and a taxi flag held up
in each hand!

You laugh... but only you can see me!
The mannequins in the windows wink at me,
the traffic signals all give me three sky blue lights,
and the oranges in the fruit stand on the corner
throw their blossoms at me.

Come on! Like this... half dancing,
and half flying.

I tip my melon to greet you,
hand you a small taxi flag,
and say...

Sure... I'm crazy.  Crazy...  crazy...
don't you see the moon rolling down Callao?
With a line of astronauts and children
waltzing around me?
Dance, come on... fly!

I know... crazy!  Crazy!  Crazy...
I see Buenos Aires from a sparrow's nest...
and I saw you down below... so sad.
Come on, fly!  Feel it...
this insane fantasy I have for you!

Crazy!  Crazy!  Crazy!
When night comes to your porteña loneliness,
I'll come to the edge of your bed,
with a poem and a trombone
to watch over your heart.

Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin' my first bongo
Every monkey'd like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong
I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown
So I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie
I'm the "king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Hear me when I come
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
They say that I'm a clown
Making too much dirty sound
They say there is no place for little monkey in this town
Nobody'd like to be in my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie
I'm the king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come
"King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Bangin' on my bongo all that swing belongs to me
I'm so happy there's nobody in my place instead of me
I'm a king without a crown hanging loose in a big town
But I'm the king of bongo baby I'm the king of bongo bong
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby, king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong...

A Thousand Kisses Deep"

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then it’s done –
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life as if it’s real,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed,
I’m back on Boogie Street.
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the Masterpiece.
And maybe I had miles to drive,
And promises to keep:
You ditch it all to stay alive,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
I made it to the forward deck.
I blessed our remnant fleet –
And then consented to be wrecked,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed,
I’m back on Boogie Street.
I guess they won’t exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep.
And quiet is the thought of you,
The file on you complete,
Except what we forgot to do,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat .

har*, spent the evening listening to the Man,

great voice, profound lyrics, and wondering if its possible to dance with the WIL to "Here It is" and a "thousand kisses deep"

* har, nautical term as in "har Jim Lad"

Here is your crown
And your seal and rings;
And here is your love
For all things.

Here is your cart,
And your cardboard and piss;
And here is your love
For all of this.

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And my love, goodbye.

Here is your wine,
And your drunken fall;
And here is your love.
Your love for it all.

Here is your sickness.
Your bed and your pan;
And here is your love
For the woman, the man.

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And, my love, goodbye.

And here is the night,
The night has begun;
And here is your death
In the heart of your son.

And here is the dawn,
(until death do us part);
And here is your death,
In your daughters heart.

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And, my love, goodbye.

And here you are hurried,
And here you are gone;
And here is the love,
That its all built upon.

Here is your cross,
Your nails and your hill;
And here is your love,
That lists where it will

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And my love, goodbye.

You have a romantic soul, BTM, with a thin, hard, cynical crust; much like Baked Alaska.  Wink

Michael Jackson...RIP...

She was more like a beauty
 queen from a movie scene
I said dont mind, but what do you mean I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round
She said I am the one who will dance on the floor in the round
2nd verse
She told me her name was billie jean, as she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

People always told me be careful of what you do
And dont go around breaking young girls hearts
And mother always told me be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do cause the lie becomes the truth

Billie jean is not my lover
Shes just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son

She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son


For forty days and forty nights
The law was on her side
But who can stand when shes in demand
Her schemes and plans
cause we danced on the floor in the round
So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice
(do think twice)

She told my baby,we where dancing still 3:00
Then she looked at me, she show me a photo
My baby cried, cause his eyes where like mine

People always told me be careful of what you do
And dont go around breaking young girls hearts
She came and stood right by me
Then the smell of sweet perfume
This happened much too soon
She called me to her room


Billie jean is not my lover
Shes just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
Billie jean is not my lover
Shes just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son
Billie jean is not my lover
Shes just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, she says he is my son
She says I am the one
Billie jean is not my lover
Billie jean is not my lover
Billie jean is not my lover
Billie jean is not my lover
Billie jean is not my lover
Billie jean is not my lover

and a cold heart? like Kay who was kidnapped by the Snow Queen?
