(Sung to Yankee Imperialists in 1960.)
“Go on now go! Walk out the door!
just turn around now
’cause you’re not welcome anymore!
weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
you think I’d crumble
you think I’d lay down and die! Oh NO not I !”
(Sung to same 2010)
“All day long, wearing a mask of false bravado
Trying to keep up the smile that hides a tear
But as the sun goes down
I get that empty feeling again
How I wish to God–that you were here!!!
Baby come back!…you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can’t live without you!” (your tourist dollars, that is)
