"Sao Paulo" as written by and Bernard/lehman Edwards....
Waiting in the club lounge
I slot in so systematically
I want to smash it to pieces
Release this hatred inside of me

You know you fill me with passion
But I just act apologetically
I'm gonna miss you in fashion
All ashen faced with my deceit

Sao Paulo
Why am I bringing me down?
Sao Paulo
If I drink any more I will drown
Sao Paulo
Why can't I fight truth decay?
Sao Paulo
My life is just one big cliche

Another stain on my passport
I want to travel so futuristically
I just wish I could beam up, team up
And soon be on my way

You told me we'd go to Rio
And you said it so charismatically
I know it's me that's the nightmare
So fight fair or have some decency

Sao Paulo
Why am I bringing me down?
Sao Paulo
If I drink any more I will drown
Sao Paulo
Why can't I fight truth decay?
Sao Paulo
My life is just one big cliche

Sao Paulo
Why am I bringing me down
Sao Paulo
If I drink any more I will drown
Sao Paulo
Why can't I fight truth decay?
Sao Paulo
My life is just one big cliche

You sure put a spin on my day
Why am I heading your way
Everything is coming up grey
I'm just a humble DJ

    General CommentThe band:

    "We did a disastrous promo trip when we thought we were going to Rio and ended up in Sao Paolo, which is a concrete jungle. But the other side is that the people are just amazing. So the music is in the wonderful spirit of the city, while the lyrics are about a nightmare journey."
