Cape To Rio lyrics – The Hanging Gardens Of Beatenberg

Cape To Rio lyrics

She went from Cape to Cairo
I went from Cape to Rio
She drinks her Tanqueray
But it’s Mainstay for me-o
My heart and soul are hardened
I built the Hanging Gardens
I let my tears flow
I let my tears flow
Oh what bitter stuff

Don’t say my song’s too slow!
Don’t talk cause you don’t know
The place I come from is a place you never go
No no it’s not enough
I want more of this bitter stuff
You’ll see me swaying as you’re praying for my fall

I try to understand her
Outside on the blue veranda
When she feels pleasure
It’s a measure of my worth
They say never say never
But my name’s Nebuchadnezzar
And I’ll never let it go
I’ll never let it go
No it’s not enough

Don’t say my song’s too slow!
Don’t talk cause you don’t know
The place I come from is a place you never go
No no it’s not enough
I want more of this bitter stuff
You’ll see me swaying as you’re praying for my fall

She makes the feeling purer
With a dash of Angostura
I’ve learned the art
Of being everywhere at once
I built the Cape to Cairo
I drank the Cape to Rio
I died an emperor
And came back as a griot, oh

Don’t say my song’s too slow!
Don’t talk cause you don’t know
The place I come from is a place you never go
No no it’s not enough
I want more of this bitter stuff
You’ll see me swaying as you’re praying for my fall

Don’t say my song’s too slow!
Don’t talk cause you don’t know
The place I come from is a place you never go
No no it’s not enough
I want more of this bitter stuff
You’ll see me haggard as I stagger down the hall
