About This Album

Lyrics

  • Rio

    [Verse 1]
    Moving on the floor now babe you're a bird of paradise
    Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it's very nice
    With a step to your left and a flick to the right
    You catch that mirror way out west
    You know you're something special
    And you look like you're the best

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    [Verse 2]
    I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
    Two of a billion stars it means so much to me
    Like a birthday or a pretty view
    But then I'm sure that you know it's just for you

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    [Tenor Saxophone Solo]

    [Bridge]
    Hey now woo look at that
    Did he nearly run you down?
    At the end of the drive the lawmen arrive
    You make me feel alive, alive, alive
    I'll take my chance 'cause luck is on my side or something
    I know what you're thinking
    I tell you something, I know what you're thinking

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twists across a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande
    Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand
    And I might find her if I'm looking like I can
    Oh Rio, Rio hear them shout across the land
    From mountains in the North down to the Rio Grande

  • Out on the tar plains, the glides are moving
    All looking for a new place to drive
    You sit beside me, so newly charming
    Sweating dew drops glisten, freshing your side

    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart

    Way down the lane away, living for another day
    The aphids swarm up in the drifting haze
    Swim seagull in the sky, towards that hollow western isle
    My envied lady holds you fast in her gaze

    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart

    Sing blue silver

    And watching lovers part, I feel you smiling
    What glass splinters lie so deep in your mind?
    To tear out from your eyes
    With a thought to stiffen brooding lies
    And I'll only watch you leave me further behind

    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart

    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart

    Sing blue silver
    Sing, sing blue silver
