    Late last night my phone rang

    Long distance Mozambique

    A soft voice said “Remember me”

    Stunned I heard her speak

    She asked how I was doing

    I said everything was fine

    A brown skinned beauty from my past

    Electrified the line


    Her laugh was like a tinkling bell

    Hair was midnight black

    Five years passes quickly

    Everything’s now coming back

    I’ll send your children’s pictures

    A half the world away

    You’ve twins a boy and a girl

    Wanna meet their dad someday


    She came from Madagascar

    Crossed the channel in a boat

    Which leaked and had a ragged sail

    Barely stayed afloat

    We met in Nova Mambone

    Where she worked in a hotel

    Every night she slipped in my room

    Saw the sun come up as well


    The world ain’t such a small place

    Neither is it black or white

    It’s filledd with lots of good folks

    Sometimes doing right

    Payback can be lovely

    So my friend you decide

    The road of life can sometimes be

    A real surprising ride


    One day I’ll have them with me

    Saving for it now

    Both the kids look just like me

    And momma too somehow

    God gave me her address

    I get letter once a week

    From momma and the kids

    Way down south in Mozambique
