Kirsty Maccoll – Us Amazonians lyrics

Here in the country we dance and we play
And we pray to our saints and we make love all day
I fell in love with a real city boy
Who's afraid of his nature, afraid of his joy
I punched him out and brought him to this hut
But I know he'll thank me when he wakes up
We got trees, we got snakes, we got acres of sky
His life in the city was making him cry

Come on, come on darling, be brave for a while
You don't look afraid when you laugh and you smile
I'll be good, I'll be strong
I'll be just what you needed all along

Here in the country we dance and we play
And we pray to our saints and we make love all day
I fell in love with a real city boy
Who's afraid of his nature, afraid of his joy

Us amazonians know where we stand
We got kids, we got jobs, why do we need a man?
Us amazonians make out alright
But we want something to hold in the forest at night

Come on, come on darling, be brave for a while
You don't look afraid when you laugh and you smile
Breathe in deep, stick with me
You'll still be free as you let yourself be

If you're certain, if you're true
I'll be the only country girl for you
I'll be good, I'll be strong
I'll be just what you needed all along

Here in the country we dance and we play
And we pray to our saints and we make love all day
I fell in love with a real city boy
Gotta teach him about nature, and teach him about joy

Us amazonians know where we stand
We got kids, we got jobs, why do we need a man?
Us amazonians make out alright
But we want something to hold in the forest at night

Here's my boyfriend, he's small, he is blue
He is cold, he is rough, he's appalling that's true
But he's got the power, he's got the fire
To be just like us is his only desire

He'll learn to hunt and I'll teach him to fish
We'll boil up our rice in a satellite dish
We'll plant cassava wherever we can
Us amazonians always get our man

Us amazonians know where we stand
We got kids, we got jobs, why do we need a man?
Us amazonians make out alright
But we want something to hold in the forest at night
