I know an island where the people are kind
And the rest of the world seems far away
Maybe it's only in the back of my mind
But I know when I go that's where I'll stay
"C'mon, c'mon" dice la Inglesa
("Come on, come on" says the English woman)
"C'est bon, C'est bon" dice la Francesa
("It's good, it's good" says the French woman)
"Ay, que lindo" dice la Cubana singing far away
("Oh how pretty!" says the Cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(What good luck.)
Esa es mi vida
(This is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)

I know a land where they live for today
'Cause tomorrow is too far away
Maybe one day you will go there with me
And we'll dance underneath the ceiba tree

"C'mon, c'mon" dice la Inglesa
("Come on, come on" says the English woman)
"C'est bon, C'est bon" dice la Francesa
("It's good, it's good" says the French woman)
"Ay, candela!" dice la Cubana singing far away
("My, it's scorching!" says the Cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(What good luck.)
Esa es mi vida
(This is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)

La vida es dura, el corazon es puro, y cantamos hasta la madrugada
(Life is hard, the heart is pure, and we sing until the early morning)
El dia no es facil, el trabajo es dificil, entonces bailamos hasta la madrugada
(The day's not easy, work is hard, then we dance until the early morning)

"C'mon c'mon" dice la Inglesa
("Come on, come on" says the English woman)
"C'est bon, C'est bon" dice la Francesa
("It's good, it's good" says the French woman)
"Ay, que rico!" dice la Cubana singing far away
("Oh how rich!" says the Cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(What good luck)
Esa es mi vida
(This is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)

Love is the key to the dance, you can move in a trance when the music sets you free
Don’t be afraid of the rhythm it’s made to give life to the way you want to be

Si, yo te quiero como quiero agua pura
(Yes, I want you like I want pure water)
Si, yo te quiero como mueves la cintura
(Yes, I want you, how you move your waist)
Sí tu me quieres, trae me la luna
(If you want me, bring me the moon)
No solo una parte pero la luna entira
(Not just a piece but the entire moon)

"C'mon c'mon" dice la Inglesa
("Come on, come on" says the English woman)
"C'est bon, C'est bon" dice la Francesa
("It's good, it's good" says the French woman)
"Ay, que rico!" dice la Cubana singing far away
("Oh how rich!" says the Cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(What good luck)
Esa es mi vida
(This is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)

I once met a man with a sense of adventure
He was dressed to thrill wherever he went
He said "lets make love on a mountaintop
under the stars on a big hard rock"
I said "in these shoes? I dont think so."
I said "honey, lets do it here."

So I was sitting at a bar in Guadalajara
In walks a guy with a faraway look in his eyes
He said "I've got a powerful horse outside
climb on the back i'll take you for a ride.
I know a little place we can get there
before the break of day."
I said "in these shoes? No way Jose."
I said "honey, let's stay right here."

No le gusta caminar,
No puede montar a caballo,
como se puede bailar?, es un escandalo

And then I met an Englishman. "Oh," he said, "what are you afraid of?"
Won't you walk up and down my spine?
It makes me feel strangely alive."
I said "in these shoes? I doubt you'd survive"
I said "honey, let's do it.

No le gusta caminar,
No puede montar a caballo,
como se puede bailar?, es un escandalo

No le gusta caminar,
No puede montar a caballo,
como se puede bailar?, es un escandalo

Let's stay right here."

I'm stalking a fan
He lives in a high rise block
And here I am
He shouldn't have turned my rock
He's brushing his teeth
He doesn't look bad from this far
I'm hailing a cab
And I'm gonna follow his car
Wherever he goes
I won't be too far behind
Just hanging around
Driving him out of his mind
Treachery made a monster out of me
Treachery made a monster out of me

I'm stalking a fan
He used to write all the time
How lovely I am
He really made me feel fine
But how they forget
He needed a wake-up call
And he will regret
Having been so shallow
He made me believe
That I was some kind of myth
So here I am
How could he treat me like this?

Treachery made a monster out of me
Treachery made a monster out of me
Treachery made a monster out of me
Treachery made a monster out of me

Wherever he goes
I won't be too far behind
Just hanging around
Driving him out of his mind
I'm stalking a fan
He's gone to the record store
To buy a CD
By some other girl not me
He's taking her home
Getting her out of her box
And putting her on
And dancing around in his socks

Treachery made a monster out of me
Treachery made a monster out of me
Treachery made a monster out of me
Treachery made a monster out of me

Getting her out of her box
Treachery
And dancing around in his socks
Treachery
Treachery
And dancing around in his socks
Treachery
Driving him out of his mind

. . .


Here comes that man again
It's always round midnight
That Amsterdam creeps into my PC
After a long hard day selling pornography
He likes to come home and talk to me
He's got his mind on the job but
His technological props
Oops, another file on the email
And though I'm scared to click open
I just can't help having a look
Oh, here comes that man again
A car crash in my psyche
My curiosity's driving me
Yes here he comes again
Who'd have thought I'd have as much fun
With an anonymous Dutchman?
I never knew I had it in me
He says the camera is on and
Can I see him yet?
I say "Babe you look like a ghost
And sound like a Dalek to me"
So let's go back to the written word
Even though we both know it's absurd
Here comes that man again
Here comes that man again
Here comes that man again

Here comes that man again
He knows that I'm online
"Knock knock, who's there?"
It's just a matter of time
Here comes millenium man
Rum and coke in one hand
And in the other...
Is that a mouse a see?
Although when I tell him he's corny
It seems to make him quite horny
And through the cyberspace
I watch the rapture on his face
Yes while his girlfriend is sleeping
His sexuality's peeking
Here comes that man again
After a long hard day
He likes to come home and talk to me
He says it's something he needs
He can't stop spilling the seeds
God bless European unity
And all those who never sleep

Sha la la la la, get your rocks off baby
Sha la la la la, get your rocks off baby
Sha la la la la, get your rocks off
Another stain on another blue dress

Sha la la la la, get your rocks off baby
Sha la la la la, get your rocks off baby
Sha la la la la, get your rocks off
Yes, yes

I'm an autumn girl, flying over London
With the trees on fire it looks like home
I'm an autumn girl on the endless search for summer
Cause I need some love to cook my frozen bones
You needed something to get your teeth into
And in my voodoo kitchen you said
"I've got something to show you,
It's a recipe handed down from father to son
For a thousand years, and it goes with those hot salt tears."

I'm an autumn girl, crying over London
With a heart on fire but no-one home
I'm an autumn girl on the endless search for summer
Cause I need some love to heat my frozen bones

Get me on the boil and reduce me
To a simmering wreck with a slow kiss
To the back of my neck
Carve up my heart on a very low flame
Separate my feelings then pour them down the drain
Close my eyes and sweeten me with lies
Pierce my skin with a few well chosen words
Now you can stuff me with whatever you've got handy
And on a cold grey day a cold grey man will do

I'm an autumn girl, flying over London
With the trees on fire it looks like home
I'm an autumn girl on the endless search for summer
Cause I need some love to heat my frozen bones

So give me something to whet my appetite
And chill my soul with a sudden lack of interest
Oh, but the winter freezes on and the candle's burned low
Fill me with the hot stuff then say you've got to go
Take my mind, marinade it in red wine
Grate my thighs with your chinny chin chin
And I will let you in
Oh on a long dark night a long dark man might ...

. . .


Oh she is hot, she's hot, she's hot
She's just a wild and wicked slut
And she lives inside my head and stops me sleeping
And when I think she's finally gone
Some guy arrives and turns her on
Then she parties until dawn
This can't go on
Celestine
Get out my dreams
You're killing me so slowly

So many men, so many fights
So many parties and late nights
She plumbs the depths and hits the heights
That Celestine
She pretends that she can't hear me
She pretends she's nowhere near me
She just goes quiet and pretends that she's not in
But Celestine I know you're there
In your exotic underwear
And you are fixing up your hair now, Celestine

Celestine
Get out my dreams
You're killing me so slowly

My lover looked into my eyes
And I could tell by his surprise
It was not me he saw in there but Celestine
And now it's her that he lusts after
I can hear that wicked laughter
Still he comes to me but I know where he's been

Celestine
Get out my dreams
You're killing me so slowly

Celestine
Get out my dreams
You're killing me so slowly

My lover hasn't got a clue
He doesn't know that he's untrue
And it's not me he makes love to but Celestine
Oh yes she's hot, she's hot, she's hot
I guess she's everything I'm not
And she lives inside my head and stops me sleeping

. . .


Oh you shouldn't have kissed me and got me so excited
And when you asked me out I really was delighted
So we went to a pub in Belsize Park
And we cheered on England as the sky grew dark
Oh you shouldn't have kissed me cause you started a fire
But then I found out that you're a serial liar

You lied about your status
You lied about your life
You never mentioned your three children
And the fact you have a wife
Now it's England 2 Colombia 0
And I know just how those Colombians feel

If you hadn't passed out while I was talking to your friend
It could have really ended badly cause you very nearly had me
If he hadn't taken pity on my heart full of desire
I might never have found out you're a serial liar

You lied about your status
You lied about your life
You forgot you have three children
You forgot you have a wife
Now it's England 2 Colombia 0
And I know just how those Colombians feel

It is not in my nature to ever pick the winning team
Sometimes I think I'm happy then I remember it's a dream
Now it isn't in my nature to ever pick a winner
I always pick a bastard who would have me for his dinner*

I can never possess the object of my desire
Cause he's bound to turn out to be a serial liar
OK I didn't mention my kids, I thought I'd wait a bit
But I am free and single and he's a lying git

Cause he lied about his status
He lied about his life
He forgot he had three children
He forgot he had a wife
And it's England 2 Colombia 0
I know just how those Colombians feel

So I got into a taxi and sobbed all the way home
Called my friend up in Sao Paulo and cried down the phone
I played some tragic music and I lay down to die
But later I woke and I hadn't stopped crying

You should never have kissed me, you tasted of deceit
Your perfume was Adultery but I'm not a piece of meat
So I'll be the one that you couldn't acquire
I found out in time you're a serial liar

You lied about your status
You lied about your life
And I pity your three children
And I pity your poor wife
Now you can go to Hell
I'm going to Brazil
Still it's England 2 Colombia 0

She awakes when the sun has found her face
And she reaches for the tin where she keeps important things
A cigarette, a magic bean, a page torn from a magazine
And a letter that he sent full of promises and dreams
Of how he walked across the jungle
Across the desert to the bright shiny city by the sea

She's not waiting anymore
Não esperando seu amor
(She's not waiting for her love)
Now the sun is up the spell is broken
She's not waiting anymore
Não esperando seu amor
(She's not waiting for her love)
Now the sun is up the dream has flown away

Another day, now his words have worn away
And his face, well she can't quite remember
And she sighs with remorse, all her dreams are flying north
Where they wear fancy clothes, painted nails and long blonde hair
And where they fly across the jungle
Across the desert to the bright shiny city by the sea

She's not waiting anymore
Não esperando seu amor
(She's not waiting for her love)
Now the sun is up the spell is broken
She's not waiting anymore
Não esperando seu amor
(She's not waiting for her love)
Now the sun is up the dream has flown away

See her fly across the jungle
Across the desert to the bright shiny city by the sea

She's not waiting anymore
Não esperando seu amor
(She's not waiting for her love)
Now the sun is up the spell is broken
She's not waiting anymore
Não esperando seu amor
(She's not waiting for her love)
Now the sun is up the dream has flown away

. . .


I close my eyes, another dream arrives
Deeper and deeper into the sweet water
Filling my senses with happiness and joy
Happiness and joy

Alegria

Happiness and joy

. . .


Here in the country we dance and we play
And we pray to our saints and we make love all day
I fell in love with a real city boy
Who's afraid of his nature, afraid of his joy
I punched him out and brought him to this hut
But I know he'll thank me when he wakes up
We got trees, we got snakes, we got acres of sky
His life in the city was making him cry

Come on, come on darling, be brave for a while
You don't look afraid when you laugh and you smile
I'll be good, I'll be strong
I'll be just what you needed all along

Here in the country we dance and we play
And we pray to our saints and we make love all day
I fell in love with a real city boy
Who's afraid of his nature, afraid of his joy

Us Amazonians know where we stand
We got kids, we got jobs, why do we need a man?
Us Amazonians make out alright
But we want something to hold in the forest at night

Come on, come on darling, be brave for a while
You don't look afraid when you laugh and you smile
Breathe in deep, stick with me
You'll still be free as you let yourself be

If you're certain, if you're true
I'll be the only country girl for you
I'll be good, I'll be strong
I'll be just what you needed all along

Here in the country we dance and we play
And we pray to our saints and we make love all day
I fell in love with a real city boy
Gotta teach him about nature, and teach him about joy

Us Amazonians know where we stand
We got kids, we got jobs, why do we need a man?
Us Amazonians make out alright
But we want something to hold in the forest at night

Here's my boyfriend, he's small, he is blue
He is cold, he is rough, he's appalling that's true
But he's got the power, he's got the fire
To be just like us is his only desire

He'll learn to hunt and I'll teach him to fish
We'll boil up our rice in a satellite dish
We'll plant cassava wherever we can
Us Amazonians always get our man

Us Amazonians know where we stand
We got kids, we got jobs, why do we need a man?
Us Amazonians make out alright
But we want something to hold in the forest at night

. . .


I feel empty, I feel deceived
You shouldn't have done that to me
I was fine till you came along
I'd grown used to being alone
But you made love to me and then
I hoped it might happen again
And now you tell me you love someone else
And that life's too complicated
And you throw me a cliché like "We'll still be friends"
Well mister, you're wrong again

Cause my friends are people who love me
Not like you, not like you
And they try to take good care of me
They wouldn't hurt me like you do
Will I ever get smart, once again I'm the fool
To let you be so unnecessarily cruel

And now you tell me you love someone else
I was just light entertainment
Did you think you would cause me no pain?
Wrong again, wrong again

I thought my karma might protect me
From any harm you might subject me to
That my heart could be ruled by my brain
Wrong again
So you took a little piece of me
Laid me open for the world to see
But if I meant so little to you
Why couldn't you just leave me be?
It wouldn't have made so much difference to you
But it meant the whole world to me

And now you tell me you love someone else
You were thinking of her all along
So you thought my intentions were roughly the same
Wrong again, wrong again

I might not have minded if I'd been prepared
I wouldn't have felt such rejection
But your heart's not as free as you promised me
And you've realised on closer inspection

So now you tell me you love someone else
You were thinking of her all along
You assumed that I knew all the rules of the game
Wrong again, wrong again

. . .


There's a brand new car in your driveway
And a blonde new girl in your bed
You've everything you ever wished for
Happy little bubblehead
And you can't fill it up with promises
You can't fill it up with lies
And you can't fill it up with business lunches
Oh but you can try
Who am I to criticise you?
Just a girl that you despise
Welcome to designer living
This is your designer life

There's a big house high on a hilltop
And another house in Spain
Mummy's little soldier's riding on the gravy train
And my you're looking lovely
May you stay forever young
May you never get a conscience
About the things that you have done

Who am I to criticise you?
Just a girl to twist the knife
Welcome to designer living
This is your designer life

Who am I to criticise you?
Just a girl that you despise
Welcome to designer living
This is your designer life

This is your designer life
You and your designer life

. . .


You go to my head till I'm losing my mind
Your beautiful words stretch me out on a blanket of sky
I don't want to come down
No I don't want to come down
Just want to stay lost in your eyes
You go to my head, I dream I am loved
You're flowing through me like a river of poetry
I don't want to come down
No I don't want to come down
Just want to stay lost in your eyes

So keep feeding the fire, I can't get any higher
Till the night burns with the fire of a thousand stars
You go to my head and I know I'm alive
You could waken the dead with your beautiful mind
I don't want to come down
No I don't want to come down
Just want to stay lost in your eyes

I don't want to come down
No I don't want to come down
Just want to stay lost in your eyes
Just want to stay lost in your eyes

. . .


I'm so alone now
Turn to stone now
Won't someone free me
Love me or need me
Surrounded by lovers I stand apart
Won't someone hold me
When I am lonely
Let the sun shine on my golden heart
Music's playing
I'm still praying
Venus made me
Eros betrayed me
Instead of love's arrow
He used a poison dart
So if you could love me
Take good care of me
You'd take this spell off my golden heart

I used to dance and
I knew romance till
A dagger of glass tore my world apart
But if you could hold me
When I am lonely
I'd love you back with a golden heart

. . .


Every Friday night she rides the whole way over town
Just to see some stupid boy who never turns around
He never sees the girl whose dreams have told her he's the one
Still she gets excited whenever Friday comes
There is no reason in love's sweet plan
It's deeper than the sea
Things happen, we fall in love
It just comes naturally

Anyone who saw her in the street would never know
The passion of the feeling she never puts on show
We can not choose the ones with whom we think that we belong
Just when you're not looking someone comes along

There is no reason in love's sweet plan
It's deeper than the sea
Things happen, we fall in love
It just comes naturally

There she stands, clothes around her feet
Choosing what to wear so she can just stand in his street
"Please, oh please, this time I'll make him mine"
She begs of her reflection in her dressing table shrine

Oh, there is no reason in love's sweet plan
It's deeper than the sea
Things happen, we fall in love
It just comes naturally

. . .


Where can I find the words to describe
The way that I feel with you by my side?
Everyone can see that you are good for me
I always dreamed some day I'd find you
Now I can put my arms around you
And everyone agrees that you are good for me

Yes, I think I do deserve you
Yes, I think I really earned you
And now it seems every cliche is true
I can be good for you too

I'll tell you a story of love lost and found
There's no-one else for me now you are around
And everyone can see that you are good for me
Cut me adrift in the bluest of skies
I'm so close to heaven, it was such a surprise
Now everyone agrees that you are good for me

Yes, I think I do deserve you
Yes, I think I really earned you
And now it seems every cliche is true
I can be good for you too
