lyrics

GUNBOAT MAMA

Verse 1:
She a gunboat momma
Bigger guns than you ever seen
She come humping up your Mekong
Steaming into your dreams
Wo, o, your Thailand jungle of dreams

Verse 2:
Her daddy used to beat her
Momma used beat her too
Don't raise a hand to her
She won't raise a hand to you
Wo, o, she won’t harm a hair on you

Chorus:
She a gunboat momma
Bigger guns than you ever seen
She come humping up your Mekong
Steaming into your dreams
Wo, o, your Thailand jungle of dreams

Verse 3:
Puppy dogs love her
Goldfish love her too
Show her that you love her
She will love you too!
Wo, o, she sure will love you too

Chorus...

Bridge:
Way up on the Mekong
Jungle that never sleeps
Down around the equator
She’s all about delivery

Verse 4:
She take you sailing down the river
Sailing down the highway too
She got them guns to deliver
You’re gonna handle ‘em too
Wo, o, she lay them high calibers on you

Chorus...

Coda:
Wo, o, jump into that water
Said o, she gonna make it hotter
Yeah, yeah, hotter than a napalm dream
