"Bamboo Road" as written by and Willy De Ville....
I wake up in the morning
And I'll work 'till night
My skin has turned brown
From that sun so bright
All night I'm tossing and turning
'Cause my dreams are so strong
And my hands they callous
'Cause my working day's too long

Up on Bamboo Road
Up on Bamboo Road
Yes you're sweeter than a sugar cane
Up on Bamboo Road

We walk out to the cane fields
All thirty-five men
At 12 o'clock they give us water
And we stagger back again
4 o'clock the sun gets higher
I hear that screen door slam
See you in the big house kitchen window
From the cane fields I'm in

Up on Bamboo Road
Up on Bamboo Road
Yes you're sweeter than a sugar cane
Sweeter than that sugar cane
Sweeter than sugar cane
Up on Bamboo Road

I want to hold you close cher
I can only see you when I can
All day I cut that pure cane sugar
But I'm still a starving man

Up on Bamboo Road
Up on Bamboo Road
Yes you're sweeter than a sugar cane
Sweeter than the sugar cane
Sweeter than the sugar cane
Up on Bamboo Road
