Mozambique (Dylan)

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Played as an instrumental by Phil Lesh & Friends in 2013 and also, I think, sung by Anders Osborne. Not to be confused with the Traffic instrumental with the same title.

I like to spend some time in Mozambique
The sunny sky is aqua blue
And all the couples dancing cheek to cheek
It�s very nice to stay a week or two

There�s lot of pretty girls in Mozambique
And plenty time for good romance
And everybody likes to stop and speak
To give the special one you seek a chance
Or maybe say hello with just a glance

Lying next to her by the ocean
Reaching out and touching her hand
Whispering your secret emotion
Magic in a magical land

And when it�s time for leaving Mozambique
To say goodbye to sand and sea
You turn around to take a final peek
And you see why it�s so unique to be
Among the lovely people living free
Upon the beach of sunny Mozambique
