    "Waterhole (Expresso Bongo)" Lyrics


    When the taxis gather in mock Solemnity
    Funeral hearses court the death of virginity
    Was it paradise lost or paradise found?
    Did we gain respect or were we holding ground?
    You had found true love, or so you believed
    And the wideboys tattooed your hearts upon their sleeves
    So when you think it's time to go
    When you think it's time to go
    Don't be surprised, the heroes never show

    And the patter merchants selling false impressions
    Tipping eyes at the waitress with American expressions
    Tie angels to the bar with sweet Martini's and their charms
    They're lying on every word and every arm
    They're turning down their noses to the best lines
    And the cheap wines

    And the wideboys
    They wear their lovebites for their crimes
