Bigger in Japan

Never knew you were a fellow surfer bro!

This tunes for you. Ho'onua  On and On (Stephen Bishop cover)
It's better than the original...grab the headphones :)

Wo yo yo
Wo yo-o-yo yo yo

Down in Jamaica they've got lots of pretty women
Steal your money then they break your heart
Lonesome Sue, she's in love with old Sam
Take him from the fire into the frying pan


On and on
I just keep on tryin'
And I smile though I feel like cryin'
On and on, on and on, on and on

Yes every night I keep wondering why
Will I ever get another chance to see her lovely eyes
And every day, to myself I say
I got to keep on pushing, 'cause I love her that way
And one more question, will you be mine?
And if I see you, please tell me no lies
Be up front, and baby, realize that for you
I'm holding on and on and on

Wo yo yo, wo yo-o-yo yo yo(x2)

Lonesome Jimmy sits alone in the moonlight
Saw his woman kiss another man, yeah
Takes up a ladder, steals the stars from the sky
Puts on Bob Marley and starts to cry


Badabababye badabababye badabababye(hey)
Badabababye badabababye badabababye(ho)
Badabababye badabababye badabababye(ahh)
Badabababye badabababye badabababye(hey)

Well my first time, is my last time
Makes you feel so good
Well if you know it, why don't you show it
Baby hold on tight, don't let her say goodbye

Don't say goodbye, 'cause I'm moving on and on
And for you pretty lady, I thought I'd write this song
The clock keeps ticking, my heart keeps on wishing
That I'll hold you in my arms, so please keep on skipping
In my direction as I start to flow
Thinking about the good times that you and I can know
Will you hold me tight inside and please don't let me go
'Cause Big C won't let me let your lover go

I got the sun on my shoulders and my toes in the sand
My woman left me for another man
But I don't worry, I just dream and stay tanned
Toss up my heart and see where it lands


On and on(x2)

Wo yo yo, wo yo-o-yo yo yo(x4)

Your post reminded me of this rare gem and a deep memory....thanks 4 that ;)
