    "I climb your MOUNTAINS, slide into your arms, into the Tropic of Capricorn."

    Hmmmm.

    "A'int no island, a'int no sandy beach, no Waborita in my reach."

    Hmmmm.

    "I want to wake up in the high, wake up in the HEAT of paradise"

    Hmmmm.

    "I want to find myself that little PIECE of paradise."

    Hmmmm.

    I sure hope I'm wrong, but it seems Sam's head might have been in the gutter again here.
    I know YankeeRose is going to come running to Sam's defense here, telling me it's an inspirational, uplifting song about
    living the good life. But the more I listen, the more it sounds like he's singing about Snatch.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    Doucet, I think you're stretching a bit, but at the same time those lyrics could mean just about anything. I love the song, it's probably one of the most evocative songs Sammy has ever recorded. There's an emotion in that song that is so laid back and cool. As a Canadian in January, that song makes me want to pack up everything I need (aka, stuff with a VH logo on it) and head south.

    I guess it's not as important what the meaning is, as much as whether you like the song or not. It's a good song that can mean different things to different people.

    Hey Glenn, I love that song too! Maybe I am looking a little too deep into it. I wasn't trying to bash the song, I'm just curious about the lyrics.

    The part about climbing mountains, sliding into her arms into the Tropic of capricorn just makes me wonder.

    Rock on Sammy!

    Man, some people have WAY too much time on their hands if they make that connection with Tropic of Capricorn.

    That said, um, where can I get my ticket to the tropics?
