Big Day From: Diamond Head (1975) by Phil Manzanera


Taking our time before its through
Passing our days in old shoes
Sister -- think I'm returning to Peru
Wish that I never came here
They can't pronounce my name here
Everyone asks me {{ Where's Peru }}

In Peru we've lenghtened the day
In Peru we've strenghtened the dollar
There are mountains piercing our skies
And the ocean at our shores
I will save up all of my wages
Even retail crumby cosmetics
I will work my passage in stages
As the winter slips away

Miles of golden beaches
Excellent wines and features
Mister-take a week off in Gay Peru
Penitential monks to stare at
Colonial dons in old straw hat
Everyone's there in Gay Peru
00 - poo - Peru
