Croatia!

bistro.jpg


Listen Here!


There sets the sun on the Adriatic Sea
my dogs are barking and I got sore knees
Iím Ďbout as broke as a champagne glass
I think Iíll take a nap on this patch of grass

A bum is still a bum in a new country
A cat still scratches when heís got fleas
The boats are cominí in and I got loose change
I think Iíll buy a fish and grill it on the range

Croatia Iím gonna miss ya
Like a bottle of wine
Iíll put my lips against ya
Hold on tight itís a roller coaster ride
From Dubrovnik to Split itís gonna be alright

Gather up my Kunas and wash my hair
This bus rideís shaky but I donít scare
Kids are playing futbol and kicking a goal
My head is the post and it takes it toll

I duck into a church to say my prayers
It doesnít matter what religion theyíre all unfair
The water looks just like turquoise foam
I canít stay here but I wonít go home

Croatia Iím gonna miss ya
Like a bottle of wine
Iíll put my lips against ya
Hold on tight itís a roller coaster ride
From Dubrovnik to Split itís gonna be alright

The ghost of Tito hovers in the shade
Donít make a lot of money but we still get paid
I try to play quiet but I end up loud
Throw some money in my case I ainít too proud

The sunís so hot my sweat drips down
My eyes are red and my skin is brown
Iím like a magician as the waves play tag
Iím gonna change this money to a jug in a bag

Croatia Iím gonna miss ya
Like a bottle of wine
Iíll put my lips against ya
Hold on tight itís a roller coaster ride
From Dubrovnik to Split itís gonna be alright
From Dubrovnik to Split itís gonna be alright

"It doesnít matter what religion theyíre all unfair"

I daresay that's one of the best lines you've ever written, sir.

It's really cool that you were able to photograph Jim Mora walking by the Black Cat Bistro.

Hey, I'm from Croatia! Not from Split, though... I would love for you and Jewel to come sing in my town... Please come! :)
