Independence Day (Cumbia)
------------------------------------
Now and then I get horny
At night you do
At night you do
Smile - from side to side
At night you do
At night you do
She'll be comin' round the mountain
Six white horses by her side
No stops for gas, food or lodging
She's wearing nothing but a smile
And though we struggle for our freedom
Our need for others still remains
We know what will make us happy
We know what will ease our pain
We'll pretend we are married
At night we do
At night we do
Slide your hand in mine
At night we do
At night we do
My bed is flyin' out the window
I'm pullin' up my covers to the rain
And down below cats are howlin'
It's a family affair
They're selling vegetables on Broadway
A man is runnin' for the train
Strollin' down 42nd Street
On our Independence Day
Rub-A-Dub on 57th Street
On our Independence Day!
Arm in arm on 82nd Street
It's our Independence Day
Hey Mister, Hey Lady
Hey sisters walkin' hand in hand
We'll be lovers in the open
We'll be lovers on Independence Day
Hand in hand, hand in hand
Hand in hand on Independence Day
This compass points in two directions
And North and South are both the same
We'll look forward to the good times
Come our Independence Day
Hey Lady! You make me giggle
We'll squiggle like honeymooners do
I'm struck by lightnin', it's frightnin'
So excitin', on Independence Day
Uncle Vera, Auntie Ida
Get so excited on Independence Day
Been waiting such a long time
Waiting such a long time
Waiting such a long time
Waiting such a long time
Till Independence Day
Waiting such a long time
Waiting such a long time
Waiting such a long time
And now it's here!
Independence Day!
Waiting such a long time
Such a long time
Such a long such a long time
Waiting such a long time
Till Independence Day
Waiting such a long time
Such a long time
Such a long such a long time
And now it's here
Independence Day
Waiting such a long time
Such a long time
Such a long such a long time
Waiting such a long time
Till Independence Day
Waiting such a long time
Such a long time
Such a long such a long time
Now it's here!

Make Believe Mambo (Orisa)
-------------------------------------
It was a pretty picture
It almost made me cry
He's got Big imagination
It's better than real life
He can be a macho man
And now he's a game show host
Well one minute hilarious comedian
Now he's an undercover cop
Say
Oh - let the poor boy dream
Oh - livin' make-believe
So how can we be strangers
He's got no personality
It's just a clever imitation
Of the people on TV
A line for every situation
He's learnin' trivia and tricks
Havin' sex and eatin' cereal
Wearin' jeans and smokin' cigarettes now
Oh - let the poor boy dream
Oh - livin' make-believe
Oh - let the poor boy dream
Oh - livin' make-believe
I can be you and you can be me
In my mundo, todo el mundo
Everyone's happy and everyone's free
Todo mundo, mundo mambo
Here in my mundo where nothing is wrong
Todo mundo, in my mundo
I'm a lady and you are a man
Mundo mambo, todo el mundo
Oh - let the poor boy dream
Oh - livin' make-believe
In my mundo, todo mundo
Mundo mambo, in my mundo
Todo el mundo, mundo mambo
Mundo mambo, Todo mundo
Oh - let the poor boy dream
Oh - livin' make-believe
Mundo mambo, todo el mundo
In my mundo, todo mundo
Todo el mundo, mundo mambo
In my mundo, mundo mambo

The Call of the Wild (Merengue
------------------------------------------
A bird who tries to fly higher
Flies into the blue
A lady who strives to rise higher
She wears a high heel shoe
Como un pájaro que vuela
Vuela alto al ciela azul
La mujer por más que suba
Nunca lo puede alcanzar
Nunca lo puede alcanzar
Nunca lo puede alcanzar
Two mountains loved one another
For a million years
Let the river pull you under
Take your fingers outta your ears
What made Mona Lisa smile?
Es una sonrisa eterna
Learn not to run when you hear it call
La cual no puedes cambiar
It is not a lullabye
Su cantar es diferente
And the call of the wild is not a difficult song
Con su tonada bestial
No the call of the wild is not a difficult song
Con su tonada bestial
Es un eco en las montañas
Que rebota sin cesar
Y abajo cruza el rio
Que elimina el mal pensar
Que elimina el mal pensar
Que elimina el mal pensar
Que elimina el mal pensar
Albert Einstein wrote equations
Como un pájaro que vuela
God told Noah "Build an ark"
Vuela alto al cielo azul
Johnny Mathis sings Cole Porter
La mujer por más que suba
To bring light into the dark
Nunca lo puede alcanzar
What made Mona Lisa smile?
Es una sonrisa eterna
Learn not to run when you hear it call
La cual no puedes cambiar
It is not a lullabye
Su cantar es diferente
And the call of the wild is not a difficult song
Con su tonada bestial
No the call of the wild is not a difficult song
Con su tonada bestial
Es el cantar de la selva
Con un ruido muy bestial
Es un eco de salvaje
Que se puede dominar
Que se puede dominar
Que se puede dominar
And the call of the wild is not a difficult song
Que se puede dominar
The call of the wild is not a difficult song
Que se puede dominar
And the call of the wild is not a difficult song
Que se puede dominar
The call of the wild is not a difficult song
Que se puede dominar
Ungaré ungara
Que se puede dominar
Ungaré ungara
Que se puede dominar ...

Dirty Old Town (Mapeye)
---------------------------------
Well, there are sixteen people in Danny's apartment
Sixteen people are living in there
Remember the days of rent control
Grandpa remembers rock and roll
These days won't last forever
These days won't last for long
You know, somebody somewhere owes us a favor
That's how things really get done
In this World of Opportunities, it's a Land of Possibilities
We wanna live in a dirty old town
Building it up, tearing us down
With our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground
We wanna live - dirty old town
Dirty old town
Now when the ladies come from Kansas
They wear their traditional colors
Today the fabrics are ragged and torn
The clothes on their backs is all that they own
They say, "Don't draw attention to yourself
They'll tear you apart for a couple of bucks
Keep you head down and keep you nose clean
'Cause people who're scared do dangerous things"
These days can't last forever
These days can't last for long
You know someday things'll get better
Somehow things'll get done
In this World of Possibilities, it's the Land of Opportunities
We wanna live in a dirty old town
Building it up, tearing us down
With our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground
We wanna live - dirty old town
Dirty old town
These days shoes are worn only on special occasions
Battles are fought for fam'ly and nations
Maybe you'll pray, but God isn't home
And there's no guarantee that justice be done
We wanna live in a dirty old town
Building it up, tearing us down
With our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground
We wanna live - dirty old town
Dirty old town

The Rose Tattoo (Bomba/Mozambique)
-------------------------------------
And they were imagining Roses
As if life itself were a dream
Is a gift not a reason for living?
Not enough, not enough, so it seems
Lost in the Stars
Venus and Mars
And I'm in heaven again
I'll drink to you
The Rose Tattoo
I'm the invisible man
If all the dead are now living
And all of the living will die
Buying their tickets and changing their trains
Into the city and back home again
I'll drink to you
The Rose Tattoo
I'm the invisible man
Brinde a la Rosa
Y al hombre que no vive
Perdido en un sueño
En un atmosfer imposible
Una Rosa sueño imposible
Una Rosa sueño imposible
No queda nada
Solo la lluvia irresistible
Tatuaje de la Rosa, pero el hombre es invisible
Una Rosa sueño imposible
Una Rosa, no queda nada
Now I haven't seen you for ages
Come in, come out of the rain
Open the doorway and climb up the stairs
This is the bedroom where we said our prayers
I'll drink to you
The Rose Tattoo
I'm the invisble man
The singer's playin' "Fly Me to the Moon"
And I'm in heaven again
Brinde a la rosa
Y al hombre que no vive
Perdid en un sueño
En un atmosfer imposible
Una Rosa sueño imposible
Una Rosa sueño imposible
No queda nada
Solo la lluvia irresistible
Tatuaje de la Rosa,
Pero el hombre es invisible
Una Rosa sueño imposible
Una Rosa, no queda nada
I'll drink to you
The Rose Tattoo
I'm the invisible man
Long live the King
Nothing remains
Only a Rose Tattoo

The Dream Police (Cha Cha Cha)
---------------------------------------
Combing the snakes in his head
Reading a book in his bed
Getting ready for the night to begin
Waiting for daylight to end
In this court of law
This court of common pleas
The crimes that you've committed
You claim were only a dream
Ev'ryone has the same dreams
On diff'rent days of the week
We are the watchdogs of your mind
We are the dream police
The judge has closed his eyes
The court begins to dream
Of crimes that you committed
While you were lying asleep
Ev'reyone has the same dreams
On diff'rent days of the week
We are the watchdogs of your mind
We are the dream police
Combing the snakes in his head
Reading a book in his bed
Getting ready for the night to begin
Waiting for daylight to end
Getting ready for the night to begin
Waiting for daylight to end
