08 AMPHIBIOUS SYMPHONY

Frogs are croaking
The boats are pulling in
As the night comes falling
On the bay
I’m a stranger on vacation
Among amphibians and fishermen
That get big at the end
Of the day

Tell me, tell me more
Dime las cosas que nunca dijiste
Tell me, tell me more
Verdades, mentiras – alegres y tristes

Got my ears wide open
To the amphibious symphony
Till my girlfriend says,
“Frogs are really out”
I look at her bewildered
And ask her what she means
Then I find I got her wrong
She said “loud”

Tell me…

I’m walking through the ruins
Of an ancient Roman town
That lay right here
By the sea
Now they've built a visitor centre
Wish someone came and blew it up
It spoilt more in a year
Than twenty long centuries

Tell me…
