On The Amazon

Lyrics: Skip Battin, Kim Fowley
Music: Skip Battin, Kim Fowley

Well, I used to be a burglar
Rolled too many numbers
Now I am a smuggler on the Amazon
Living on thrills down in Brazil
Got a big plantation on the Amazon

Well, I'm living undercover
So I won't be discovered
Sailing hot cargo down the Amazon
Living on thrills down in Brazil
Got a big plantation on the Amazon

Well, I got a ton of acres
Got a lot of land
Got a outlaw lady who really understands
Why her musician
Is a South American Man

Well, I used to be a drummer
But it got to be a bummer
Now I am a bandit on the Amazon
Up in the city you think my crop is pretty
Taking care of business on the Amazon

Well, I got a ton of acres
Got a lot of land
Got a outlaw lady who really understands
Why her musician
Is a South American Man
Why her Mill Valley musician
Is a South American Man
