I am always a huge fan of your musical abilities and song writing.
would it be too much of a hassle for you to post the lyrics ?
I am so glad you have your music ability with you in Africa !
Have you ever thought of doing a song including some African beat - a la Paul Simon on his Graceland album.
keep them coming mojo !
Jim I really appreciate the complement. lol not sure I can pull the African bet myself though. nd no it is no trouble here are the lyrics and a brief explanation what they mean
well the shelves are all empty
and the toilet paper its all gone
and I dont know what the f%&$ went wrong
living on bens and rice
but still got my whiskey on ice
got plenty of beer in the corner ( we all went out and stock piled alcohol)
got whiskey on the shelf
I'm sitting here all alone just a drinking it by myself
I know this much is clear
this corona aint no beer
the apocalypses it must be coming
the whole world has lost is mind
think ill sit back and watch it I got a cold beer ill be just fine
no Walhalla in Douala ( local saying for no problem. Douala is a city in camaroon)
buying bush meat with my last dollar ( rats ,snakes, bats , lizards etc.)
had me a ticket
on an aero plane
but all those plans went down the drain
damn those frogs and krauts (air France and Lufthansa but to be fair the government stop all flights. I like the way it sounded)
left me stranded here without a doubt
I cant go home
I cant g back
now I sitting in quarantine here in ABAYAK ( Abayak is the name of the compound where we live)
their taking me away for a coupe weeks ( any one with symptoms or coming into the country must quarantine for two weeks at government facility)
to a private room somewhere on black beach (black beach Is the name of prison here where people go and are never heard from again)
so they would not take us to black beach ( I dont think)but that is a running joke around here to be arrested and
end up there.
out of tune out of key and out of touch
