Amigoland


Again, based on a book title. This is song #25 for November 25. Hope you like it.

AMIGOLAND
by Pam Bowen

Verse 1:
You can dance Salsa at Amigoland.
Three nights a week there’s a Latin band.
Bare-shouldered barmaids in Mexican skirts,
After tequila, I’m starting to flirt.

Verse 2:
But a hard-hearted hottie came in last night.
I fell for her beauty, right at first sight.
I swear at Bachata I’m one smooth partner,
But she wasn’t letting it go any farther. She said

CHORUS:
YOU CAN GIVE ME A HUG, YOU CAN HOLD MY HAND,
BUT NO MORE THAN THAT IN AMIGOLAND.
AIN’T TAKIN’ THE PLUNGE, AIN’T JUMPIN’ THE BROOM,
FRIENDS WITHOUT BENEFITS DON’T NEED A ROOM.

Verse 3:
We danced until closing, my feet were damn sore.
I hoped after that, she might go for more.
Moved in for a kiss, but she turned her head,
Gave me a big, shiny smile and said

CHORUS

Bridge:
Never queridos, only amigos
Never queridos, only amigos
Que lastima….amigos.

CHORUS
