The Lyrics Are Below

Tumble And Twirl

================

 

I've seen the city

I took the next flight

for Borneo

They say it's pretty

I like the tee shirts

in Borneo

Some wear Bob Marley

Others in Playboy

or Duvalier

Make the last plane come

Let me rise through the cloudy above

with a book on Borneo

 

Strangers come and go

It's such a waste of time

Problems far behind

Another day

But even in springtime

It's a rich slice of life

So send me a letter

I'll reply with a postcard

That dusky mulatto

In nylons and tattoos

Hot juice in coke bottles

We dance in the sand

Well, they twirl and they tumble

 

Yes, they twirl and they tumble

Well, I'll twirl and I'll tumble

I've been to Leon's

He's got nine daughters

And a stereo

They say that Leon

Watches from the tree tops

in Borneo

When the road is mud

Everything stops with a thud

That's the way it goes down yonder in Borneo

Far beneath his mansion

There's an open drain

Sending all the sewage down the hill

But when the general shows movies

No one hesitates

To sneak from the jungle

They laugh and they mumble

Enjoying the show

And that dusky mulatto

 

Hot juice in coke bottles

In Blue Jeans and tattoos

Well, they twirl and they tumble

Yes, they twirl and they tumble

Well, I'll twirl and I'll tumble

 

I like the free world

They say it's pretty

This time of year

They tumble and twirl

They tumble and twirl

I'll tumble and twirl

 

They twirl and they tumble

They twirl and they tumble

 

I like the free world

I like the free world

 

They say it's pretty

 

This time of year

This time of year
