30 July 1975

  Desire session 4, Columbia Studio E, NYC - 30.jul.1975, album version  

I like to spend some time in Mozambique
The sunny sky is aqua-blue
An' all the couples dancin' cheeks to cheeks
It's very nice to stay a week or two
An' maybe fall in love, just me an' you.

There's lots of pretty girls in Mozambique
An' plenty time for good romance
An' everybody likes to stop an' speak
To give the special one you seek a chance
An' maybe say hello with just a glance.

Lyin' next to her by the ocean
Reachin' out an' touchin' her hand
Whisperin' your secret emotion
Magic in a magical land.

An' when it's time for leavin' Mozambique
To say goodbye to sand an' sea
You trun around an' take a fianl peek
An' you see why it's so unique to be
Among the lovely people livin'e free
Upon the beach of sunny Mozambique.
