From the Appleseed Recording Where the Mangoes Are


Come down, come down to my old stream bed
Lie with me in the shade
The sun will stick to everything
Like lemon marmalade

You might have heard of girls like me
The kind that make you wanna stray
I can wind a vine around your waist
And make you glad you stayed

The water used to run through here
Til they built the new road
Now rocks and gravel block the space
Where waters freely flowed

But when you block the path of rain
It just goes underground
Come down, come down to my old stream bed
There're secrets all around

A woman who has kissed someone
A woman who's been kissed
Walks through the world more beautiful
Than sunshine through the mist

Every step and every look
A sweet warm undertow
She'll show you where the mangoes are
And tell you all she knows

Ohhhh.....

If clouds should gray our sunny day
Well, all things pass in time
You'll thank me for the memories
Of your body and mine

So come down, come down to my old stream bed
Lie with me in the shade
The sun will stick to everything
Like lemon marmalade

The sun will stick to everything
Like lemon marmalade
