Haitian Divorce

Babs and clean Willie were in love they said
So in love the preacher's face turned red
Soon everybody knew the thing was dead
He shouts, she bites, they wrangle through the night
She go crazy
Got to make a getaway

And papa says
Aah - no hesitation
No tears and no hearts' breaking
No remorse
Ooh - congratulations
This is your haitian divorce

She takes the taxi to the good hotel
Bon marché as far as she can tell
She drinks the zombie from the cocoa shell
She feels alright, she get it on tonight
Mister driver
Take me where the music plays

And papa says
Aah - no hesitation
No tears and ...

At the grotto
In the greasy chair
Sits the Charlie with the lotion and the kinky hair
When she smiled, she said it all
The band was hot so
They danced the famous merengueo
Now we dolly back
Now we fade to black

Tearful reunion in the USA
Day by day those memories fade away
Some babies grow in a peculiar way
It changed, it grows, and everybody knows
Semi-mojo
Who's that kinky so-and-so?

And papa goes
Ooh - no hesitation
No tears and no hearts' breaking ...

Funny thing that one. Quintessential non-singing musical prodigy Walter B. in his old age allowing himself to sing on stage one of them numbers. Can't sing for 3 cents, I'm lovin' it nonetheless, makes me feel better about my own c-class singing.

 

Öha... bei der Gelegenheit fällt mir ein, ich hab ja noch ein paar Platten...öhm...hust...ja also bei mir daheim, quasi.

Gewissermaßen. :) Demnächst mal Übergabe bei einem zwanglos Getränk, tät ich sagen. We call us.

Resistance is definitely futile.

Don't call us, we will call you. We are the Borg. We are not @ home right now. Never mind. We will assimilate you later.

This 1st sentence has been lying on my tung, quasi.

That's an adequate comment! Und das erste Zitat ein ganz besonders tolles Beispiel für den "Umschlag von Quantität in Qualität".
