1. Mozambique

From the recording Black And White


<p align="center">Mozambique</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">Late last night my phone rang</p>
<p align="center">Long distance Mozambique</p>
<p align="center">A soft voice said &ldquo;Remember me&rdquo;</p>
<p align="center">Stunned I heard her speak</p>
<p align="center">She asked how I was doing</p>
<p align="center">I said everything was fine</p>
<p align="center">A brown skinned beauty from my past</p>
<p align="center">Electrified the line</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">Her laugh was like a tinkling bell</p>
<p align="center">Hair was midnight black</p>
<p align="center">Five years passes quickly</p>
<p align="center">Everything&rsquo;s now coming back</p>
<p align="center">I&rsquo;ll send your children&rsquo;s pictures</p>
<p align="center">A half the world away</p>
<p align="center">You&rsquo;ve twins a boy and a girl</p>
<p align="center">Wanna meet their dad someday</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">She came from Madagascar</p>
<p align="center">Crossed the channel in a boat</p>
<p align="center">Which leaked and had a ragged sail</p>
<p align="center">Barely stayed afloat</p>
<p align="center">We met in Nova Mambone</p>
<p align="center">Where she worked in a hotel</p>
<p align="center">Every night she slipped in my room</p>
<p align="center">Saw the sun come up as well</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">The world ain&rsquo;t such a small place</p>
<p align="center">Neither is it black or white</p>
<p align="center">It&rsquo;s filledd with lots of good folks</p>
<p align="center">Sometimes doing right</p>
<p align="center">Payback can be lovely</p>
<p align="center">So my friend you decide</p>
<p align="center">The road of life can sometimes be</p>
<p align="center">A real surprising ride</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">One day I&rsquo;ll have them with me</p>
<p align="center">Saving for it now</p>
<p align="center">Both the kids look just like me</p>
<p align="center">And momma too somehow</p>
<p align="center">God gave me her address</p>
<p align="center">I get letter once a week</p>
<p align="center">From momma and the kids</p>
<p align="center">Way down south in Mozambique</p>
