  • 03:25 Lyrics From Tj to L.A.

    From TJ to LA

    Sexy girls on the beach in the sand where they lay

    In the heat of the sun as it shines every day

    'From TJ to La.

     

    From LA TO TJ

    If it don't dry up and all blow away

    The night cools down and the hot music plays

    From TJ to LA

     

    We oughta drop the top,

    Just you and me non stop,

    From TJ to LA

     

    From LA to TJ

    Is the land where the grown up children play

    We dream and we die as the palm trees sway

    From La to TJ

     

    From TJ to LA

    See 'em running up the middle of the freeway.

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

    From TJ to LA.

     

    Look at our magic mess,

    Our megalopolis

    From LA to TJ

     

    Sigame,

    Oyeme,

    No hay de que

    The girls in LA do the rumba en la manana

    La misma noche bailan la cumbia en Tijuana

     Ay! Que brilla el sol, every day, every day

    Pa' toda la noche the hot music plays

    Drop the top. Cruise control

    Mira que bonita el mar y el sol

  • 04:19 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
Original songs and instrumentals from the acclaimed author of the book “Life’s A Good Gig-A gringo musician’s journey into the world of Latin music.”
This CD, with the same title as the book, takes the listener on an international romp-a musical journey into the secret lives of musicians. Effortlessly straddling the worlds of American musical genres-jazz and blues-and Latin musical genres-Bossa Nova and salsa. Just as the book is a “fun read,” so …
