Last Mango in Paris Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I went down to Captain Tony's
To get out of the heat
I heard a voice call out to me
"Son come have a seat"
I had to search my memory
As I looked into those eyes
Our lives changed like the weather
But a legend never dies
Verse 0
[Chorus]
He said I ate the last mango in Paris
I took the last plane out of Saigon
Took the first fast boat to China
And Jimmy there's still so much to be done
I had a third world girl in Buzios
With a pistol in each hand
Verse 2
She always kept me covered
As we moved from land to land
I had a damn good run on Wall Street
With my high fashion model wife
I woke up dry beneath the African sky
Just me and my Swiss Army knife
Verse 3
[Chorus]
Verse 4
We shot the breeze for hours
As the sun fell from the sky
And like the sun he disappeared
Before my very eyes
It was somewhere past dark-thirty
As I went back to the head
I read upon the dingy walls
The words the old man said
Verse 5
[Chorus: x2]
