"Bamboo" as written by and N. Simon B. Bernier....
Bamboo walls, bamboo ceiling,
And the rain come down, seem to say
In a voice so appealing,
Go away, oh don't delay.

Though there's bamboo all around me,
I vow, I'll find a way.
But bamboo has tied and bound me,
And I know I'm here to stay.

Why do the tom-toms all beat
So loudly,
Why do the shadows all seem to
Crowd me?

Can't stop this pounding, pounding,
Pounding, in my head
Through the night I toss, on my
Bamboo bed.

Bamboo walls, bamboo ceiling,
Hold me, though love is gone.
In my heart, there is no feeling
But somehow, I carry on.

Bamboo walls, bamboo ceiling
Bamboo beam, within my heart.
