Track Name: I Love When Music Takes Me Away
When I play that bongo
It takes me to the congo
And leaves me feeling chongo
Yeah Yeah (x2)

I love the way you go about it
You really make a stand
I love the way we groove together
Love to be your man
I love to wake up in the morning
Laying by your side
And know in any type of weather
We've gone beyond our pride

I love when music
When music just take s me away (x2)

So many people talk about us
But they don't understand
The little things that only happen
between a woman and her man

And yet it's only the beginning
Of many things to come
So let the ones who just don't get it
Wait until we're done (yeah)

Chorus
Track Name: Ghost Riders
We got a side that says they could and don't
We got a side that says they will and won't
(aah ahhh)
Are we to let them share and scare and taunt?
Or let them kick their way their way right to the front?
(aah ahhh)

Ghost Riders
Track Name: Ethiopia
There's a feeling when I go
Wherever her rivers flow
The beauty puts on a show
A feeling every lover knows

In her heart I find a home
Between us no one can come
Deeper than flesh and bone
To know that you're not alone

Like a poem sits on a song yeah
(Ethiopia)
Her loving can do no wrong
(Ethiopia)
With her is where I belong
(Ethiopia)
Like a fool she got me hanging on
(Ethiopia)
Ah yeah

(Ethiopia)
Her loving can do no wrong
(Ethiopia)
Right here is where I belong, yo
(Ethiopia)
Check what I'm saying in this song
(Ethiopia)
It's deeper than flesh and bone
(Ethiopia)
Between us no one can come
(Ethiopia)
A feeling every lover knows
(Ethiopia)
When you know you're not alone
(Ethiopia)
Track Name: Hey Hey
One, one, a-pidi-one-one
Hey hey

Yo lo que traigo es pala palo palo
Pa'l chico bueno y para el malo
Aqui la esencia la pongo yo
Si tu no sabes, compra un reloj
Vengo dulcito como un mango
Y en mi arbolito se me trepo
Una gatita que digo ¡Dios!
Yo nunca he visto cosa, cosa tan buena

Duro como el bongo
Aqui la buena vibra se desato
Y a mi Narciso me lo dijo
El mundo es grande, disfrutalo
La vida es corta, no juegues no
Se va volando como un tiro
Ahorra el tiempo y vivelo
Busca la risa y no llores, no

One, One, a-pidi-one-one
Hey hey

Pa' tu pancito una mantequilla
Pa' este vampiro una vampirilla
Si estas cansao, buscate una silla
Mira esa niña, mira como brilla
A ella le gusta la sinsemilla
La de la tierra de Pancho Villa
No es complicada, mirala sencilla
Es carro nuevo, mira pocas millas

Porque yo cuando vengo
Todos me dicen ¡wow!
Y las gatitas me hacen ¡meow!
En sus mahones bien apretaos
Que ya me tienen acelerao
Aqui el colega se ve asustao
Porque un maloso la ha amenazao
Hoy no es su dia, esta salo
Y hasta las medias ya le han quitao

One, One, a-pidi-one-one
Hey hey
Track Name: How We Gonna Work It Out
How we gonna work it out

So many times I sit and wonder
Where it's gonna go
I see my brother out there fighting
Trying to get control

When there's no rhyme and there's no reason
You lose your very soul
One day we'll all look back
And how wonder how we got so cold

How we gonna work it out

I wanna know, wanna know, know, know
How we gonna work it out
Track Name: The Big Bamboo
I gotta tell you baby now
I gotta tell you baby
I gotta tell you baby now
I gotta tell you baby

You see in the morning time
I got a big bamboo
Now in the morning, babe
I got a big bamboo
And i don't know
Ah just what to do
I don't know right now
But it's all for you, you, you

Big bamboo
I've got a big bamboo

Big bamboo, di-bee-di-bee-doo
I got a big bamboo
Yes I do

I said in the evening
I got a big bamboo
In the evening, baby
I got a big bamboo
And i don't know, know
What i'm gonna do
I don't know right now my baby
What i'm gonna do
But I keep it waiting
Waiting for you, you, you

Help me move it, baby
This big bamboo
Somebody help me
With my big bamboo
Somebody help me
With my big bamboo
Track Name: Manteca
Yo naci bilongo
Porque yo compongo
Ando yo fritongo
Con manteca

Pero que juega, juega
Ah-e
Pero que juega, juega
Bembe
Pero que juega, juega
Track Name: La Buena Fe
Yo vengo de monte adentro
Y traigo la buene fe
Yo quiero vivir contento
Alegre en este bembe (x2)

No te dejes meter cuento
Tu sabes ya como es
Alla viene el diablo suelto
Con carita de bebe

No te pongas con invento
Salpicale acuyeye
Prendele una vela al santo
Al santo de Bernabe, ¡Tu ves!

Yo vengo de monte adentro
Y traigo la buene fe
Yo quiero vivir contento
Alegre en este bembe (x2)

Buscate ya tu momento
Y gozalo como es
Dile adios a los malos tiempos
Y echalos ya a correr
Porque mas vales contento
Si ya sabes donde es
Tira tu barquito al viento
Y bailalo con los pies, ¡Tu ves!

Yo vengo de monte adentro
Y traigo la buene fe
Yo quiero vivir contento
Alegre en este bembe (x2)
