Lyrics

She said, I can't Go back to America soon So goddamn cold It's gonna snow until June Yeah, they're freezing up In Buffalo, stuck in their cars And I'm lying here Neath the sun and the stars Customs man tells her That she's gotta leave She's got a plan hidden Up her shrewd sleeve Wants to find her a captain A man of strong mind And any direction he blows Will be fine

Please don't say manana If you don't mean it I have heard those words For so very long Don't try to describe the ocean If you've never seen it Don't ever forget that you Just may wind up being wrong Tried and I tried But I don't understand Never seemed to work out The way I had it planned Hanging out at a marina When Steve Martin called Singing anybody there Really want to get small Women and water Are in short supply There's not enough dope For us all to get high I hear it gets better That's what they say As soon as we sail On to Cane Garden Bay So please don't say manana If you don't mean it I have heard your lines For so very long Don't try to describe the scenery If you've never seen it Don't ever forget that you Just may wind up in my song Alright, let's reggae, Reefers Called all my friends On those cheap nightly rates Sure was good to talk To the old United States While the lights of St. Thomas Lie twenty miles west I see General Electric's Still doing their best I got to head this Boat South pretty soon New album's old and I'm fresh out of tunes But I know that I'll get em I know that they'll come Through the people and places And Caldwoods Rum So please don't say manana If you don't mean it, don't mean it I have done your lines For so very long Don't try to describe a Kiss concert If you've never seen it Don't ever forget that you Just may wind up being gonged And I hope Anita Bryant never Ever does one of my songs No, no, no
