Costa Rica

from Fundamental Things by Talkie



Down in Costa Rica, that’s where I met my tica,
and I can’t tell you why, I think I’m in love with her.
She told me that she don't know a better looking gringo,
and I can’t tell you why, I think she love me too.

Costa Rica, nice to meet ya, I think I love ya

So feeling like a winner, I asked her out to dinner,
she said I was nice, but she never seen me before.
Dice que “no me acuerdo bailando en enero,”
she said “you must be high, to think I would be dancing with you.”

Oh Costa Rica, not so nice to meet ya
Costa Rica, I guess I’ll see ya.

You probably think that I just don't care,
an American man, another millionaire,
you just figure my life must be going somewhere.
But I wanna surmise that I’m a solitaire,
just embedded inside someone’s rocking chair,
feels like I’m dead oscillating there.
But if ever a day you come back to me,
in some retributive reality,
won’t you pluck me sweetie and set me free.

Costa Rica,
Guess I don’t need ya
Costa Rica,
Adios amiga.
