BANGA

Loyalty rests in the heart of a dog
Don’t set all your eggs on the back of a frog
You can lick it twice but it won’t lick you
And salivating salvation gone so long so

Loyalty lifts and we don’t know why
And the paw is pressed against the nerve of the sky
You can leave him behind but he won’t leave you
And the road to Heaven is true – true blue

Banga
Say Banga
Say

Loyalty lives and we don’t know why
And his paws are pressed to the spine of the sky
You can leave him twice, but he won’t leave you
And the way to Heaven is true – true blue

Say – Banga
Say – Banga
Say – Banga
Say – Banga

Loneliness lifts when you open the night
Pilate awaits, as Jesus Christ
Forget him not – won’t forget about you
The way to Heaven is blue – boo hoo

Say - Banga
Say - Banga

Loyalty shifts if you carry a load
Ah, don’t shit it out in a golden commode
You can kick him twice – it’ll erode
Night is a mongrel – believe or explode

On the lonely night
On a golden road
Night is a mongrel
Believe or explode
