Brazzaville – Sandman lyrics

Hills facing east
The slums have a view
Of the sea
Towards Africa gaze
The rains last for weeks

1st of the year
We'll meet in Flamengo
For tea
We'll smoke cigarettes
By the sea
Sandman & me

Menina dengosa
Nao chore amor
A vida e saudade
Beleza e dor
La da Palestrina
Morre o cantor

Word on the street
Jorge Ben's gonna sing
New Year's Eve
In Rio the rains
Last for weeks
The rains last for weeks
