told my ma lyrics – ace of base

told my ma

[chorus]
i told my ma, about the town i love so well
i told my ma, about the town i love
my time will come, raising up my family
i told my ma, about the town i love

i’m leaving for an island, way down in the south
where the roads are curved and dusty with no names
the people’s so inviting, they’re smiling everywhere
with a tempo i can share

[chorus]

i’d like to get together, where there’s samba in the streets
in a tropical favela to the beats
in santa catarina, a hot summer night
are you ready, to ignite?

[chorus]

i said
oh oh hungry eyes, hungry eyes
my apprise, all for you
oh, hungry eyes
until the morning’s arise

[chorus x2]
