  • 04:21 Lyrics Brown Skin Woman

    Ay! Morena, morena mia

    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love

    Brown skin woman, raven black hair
    Shining in the autumn sun
    Swaying like the Santa Ana wind in the trees
    As she dance to the rhythm of the island drum

    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love

    Brown skin woman fire in her soul
    Smile the color of the moon
    Sweeter than the fruit of the mango tree
    Her eyes are saying what we oughta be doing

    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love

    Long hair woman with the coco skin
    Eyes the color of the sea
    Hips that swing to the song of the night
    The story of her dance is calling me,
    Telling me…

    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love
    You and me babe, we ought to make love

NOTES
Creative compositions...
"Salsa Nova" brilliantly blends the Latin jazz genres of Bossa Nova and Salsa. From the whimsical "Moonshine Tequila" to the melencoly "Mi Unico Sol" you're in for a treat. (In the former song you need to know that the mythical Mario is a real person, a bartender friend of Cain's. The supernatural power of the tequila is open to interpretation, and we can only speculate on the ensuing hangovers from their exploits.) Next, …
