Story

Lyrics

Wish I was down in Brazil

With the girl from Ipanema

Up on the Corcovado hill

We'd batucada in Bahia

To the beat of the sweet song of Brazil

I'd get myself a good guitar

And learn to play the bossa nova

Doing the samba 'neath the stars

Down in Copacapana, Ipanema, Leblon with you,

Baby all night long.

Someday I'm gonna get there,

Maybe I never will

Till then in my heart I’ll carry

This sweet song of Brazil.

I dried my bags and packed my tears

And started heading south down the road to Brazil.

Seems I've been on this road for years

Feels like I probably always will

But still I keep on trying.

Someday I'm gonna get there,

Maybe I never will Till then in my heart I'll carry

This sweet song of Brazil.

Story

 From the CD Life's A Good Gig. A new version recorded in 2007. Original version on "Salsa Nova" 2003

Lyrics

I love your smile and your soft caress.

I love your style and the way you dress.

I guess I even love the way you make my life a mess.

And like a child I'm so impressed,

I'm totally with you obsessed.

I love your eyes. I adore your face,

And your lovely little lies, and your sweet embrace,

I love it when you know just when and why to let me have my space.

I love your thighs. I love your waist.

I even love the way you taste.

I love the passion of your kisses When your hair falls in between our lips.

I love your fingernails and breath upon my chest. I love your very depths.

When evening falls I love the way we make Love shadows on the wall.

I love it all.

I love the way you make me feel

And the inner soul of you that's real 

The soul that deep inside yourself the world has failed to steal

The things you say, your heart and mind

I love the way your spirit shines

I love your lips and your silk soft hands,

and your slender hips and the way you stand.

And if I start to lose my grip you always take my hand.

I love the way you understand,

The little boy inside the man.

From the CD Life's A Good Gig 

Lyrics

I live my life, baby Just like a roll of the dice

I live my life, baby Just like a roll of the dice

So you'd best think twice Because things might not always be this nice.

I live from hand to mouth, baby You got to understand,

I don't worry 'bout the 'morrow

I ain't got no future plans

I just sit and the clouds roll by

Like a natural man.

The sky's so blue and sunny, honey,

But tomorrow it might rain.

I know right now you think it's kinda funny, honey

But one day you could be cry, cry crying

I hope you know what you likes,

Because things might not always be this nice.

Solo:

I know right now you think you love me

'cause right now we're riding fat and high

but what will you be thinking of me honey

If and when the well up and runs dry

So you'd best think twice

Because things might not always be this nice.

If you seen what I seen, baby

You just might be heedin' my advice

If you seen what I seen, baby

You just might be heedin' my advice

I hope you know what you likes, baby

Because things might not always be this nice.

Story

From the CD Life's A Good Gig

Lyrics

In spite of all that we've been through 

I know our love was true

I tried so hard to save our love

I lost my self to you

In light of all this heartache

There's just but one thing left to do!

I'm going back to being myself again

Back to being my own best friend

I finally got so I was liking myself

Then living with you made a mess of my mental health

Leaving your love will not be easy to do

But if I stay you're only breaking my heart in two

Oh baby, that's what you do

I just can't stand these tears we cry

So I hope you understand the reason why

I'm going back to being myself again

I'm tired of taking it on the chin

I'm tired of feeling like the only one

You never give in, but I do and it's no fun

Sorry to say it, it's sad but it's true

But feeling this way I have to say goodbye to you

Oh, goodbye babe

I've looked in to your point of view

And this is what it leads me to.

Story

Lyrics

Written for a dear friend who suffered a serious riding injury. The melody came to me in a dream and a voice in the dream told me "This is the prayer for Linda." I woke up at 3 am, went into the studio and wrote it down.

Story

A theme song for those of us who live from Tijuana to Los Angeles and everywhere in between. From "Mas Latino" & "Life's A Good Gig."

Lyrics

From TJ to L.A.

Sexy girls in the sand on the beach where they lay

In the heat of the sun as it shines everyday

From TJ to L.A. From L.A. to TJ

If it don't dry up and all blow away

The night cools down and the hot music plays

From TJ to L.A.

We ought to drop the top,

Just you and me nonstop

From TJ to L.A.

From L.A. to TJ

It's the land where the grown up children play

We dream and we die as the palm trees sway

From L.A. to TJ

From TJ to L.A.

See 'em running up the middle of the freeway

It's not very far but it's sure a long way

From TJ to L.A.

Look at this magic mess

Our megalopolis

From TJ to L.A.

The girls in L.A. do the rumba en la manana

La misma noche hacen la cumbia en Tijuana.

Drop the top. Cruise control!

Mira que bonita el mar y el sol!

Hay que brilla el sol everyday, everyday.

Y cada noche the hot music plays!

Lyrics

Sola, siempre va solita

La bella mocosita Embusca del amor

Ella siempre esta solita

La Linda muchachita

Embusca del amor

Sola, siempre va solilla

La bella mocosilla

Embusca del amor
