Track Name: Horizontal Mambo
Horizontal Mambo Author ANGEL FERREIRA

Here i sit at this mic yes
i was lonely it was monday nite
i scan the room for familiar faces
the smell of perfume leaving all it's traces
i see a face thats lit up like an Angel
then she got up and walked over to me
and all she want's is to Mambo with me
The Horizontal Mambo is the thing she want's from me
she undulates her body the rhythmn set's her free
she want's to give her pussykat to me
partagas number 4
and her black mink is on the floor
i find my self in a position
and her body is in a position
i see a face looming over mine
when i begin to look in my eyes
she start's Mambo and then start's to cry
The Horizontal Mambo is the thing she does with me
she undulates her body and the rhythmn set's her free
she want's to give here pussykat to me
i hear the words don't go
she sounded so lonely how could i know
the thing's she said i can't believe
if you heard them like i did
it would make you grieve
she no longer look's to me an Angel
she said she usually charges fee
Track Name: Frown Of A Clown
Frown Of A Clown

I will find...peace of mind
I'll start thinking of you
then you'll know when I do
I'll no longer frown
I can see ..where we will be
If I could change time
to a place or a space
with out a sad face
Like the clown on your bed
and the frown when I'm down
all the things you think that I do
manifest in your mind
where you will find
all of your fears you will find
...that the frown of this clown
and the sound when Im down
will soon change to a smile when I think of you
face your fears that reside in your mind
only then you will find
that you do rule all of my soul
You will find that the frown of this clown
and the sound when Im down
will soon change to a smile
when I think of you
.................this Clown no longer
...................Frowns.....!

Track Name: Thrills In Beverly Hills
Thrills In Beverly Hills
Author: Angel Ferreira

Sitting here at Mel's Diner I see something finer
Long tall and lean boy the girl looks mean
She'd rather nada than be caught without her Prada
Van Cleef & Arpels what she doing here at Mel's
You know she gets her thrills in beverly hills
You know she gets her thrills in beverly hills
I followed her walkin out down to sunset plaza
She stood looking in the window of Dolce Gabanna
Remember what Frank use to say "treat a lady like a dame"
We stood there for hours I don't even know her name
She said she gets her thrills in beverly hills
She said she gets her thrills in beverly hills
She won't even tell me here name
are Hollywood girls all the same
continue to play at this game
and I will make you my dame
She asked me on over on one condition
that if we make love to allow me to pick the position
she said anything you say is fine with me Daddy
Why wait lets doi it like cats in the alley
No I want my thrills in beverly hills
No I want my thrills in beverly hills
Vibe solo
I woke up in the morning finding out she's only seventeen
she wakes from a call from her agent time to bail from the scene.
She told me if I changed my mind she'll be waiting here to play
Oh well what the hell Damn you know what they say
Well I'll get my thrills in beverly hills
Well I'll get my thrills in beverly hills
Track Name: Manolo Blahnik
Manolo Blahnik Author Angel Ferreira

Yes it was a hot day in LA -
temperature a hundred and three
sitting here in traffic with no way
out of this madness- careful what you say
if you run this red light you will pay -
I don't realize today's my lucky day
All of a sudden I see her coming
holding some bags that say Chanel & Gucci
I have been waiting all day for this event
and what she's wearing is making a difference
Manolo ! , Manolito !...............Manolo Blahnik!
She jumped on the curb into the store-
made a signal and pulled over for the score
as I ran real fast across the street -
I'm telling you something fell beneath my feet
with this box I have the chance to meet
the girl with Manolo Blahnik on her feet
All of a sudden I see her standing
holding some bags that say Chanel & Gucci
I have been waiting all day for this event
and what she's wearing is making a difference
Manolo ! , Manolito ! .................Manolo Blahnik!
Well she thanked me told me I was sweet -
I asked if she later liked to meet
With no hesitation she agreed-
I patiently wait at the plaza till three
sitting here wondering what she thought of me-
I take a sip and drink this M a n g o I c e T e a
All of a sudden I see her coming
holding some bags that say Chanel & Gucci
I have waiting all day for this event
and what she's wearing is making a difference
M A N O L O ! , M A N O L I T O !...............M A N O L O B L A H N I K !!!
Track Name: Come Alive
Come Alive
Author Angel Ferreira

I See you in a picture frame
I wish that I could know your name
You comfort me in ways that you will never know
If only you could come alive
I'd Feel The misters in your eyes

Humor me and move those tender lips
If I could reach through this frame and touch your face
I could justify the love I feel for you

Come Alive my baby please come alive
Come Alive I ask you just come alive

Could it be you exist only in my dreams
There's a fragrance in the air is it Tiffany's
Locked up in this cell of solitude
I must be crazy with out you
you were born in someone mind who loved you
I would do the unthinkable to make you

Come Alive My love just Come Alive
Come and fly my baby please Come Alive
Vibe solo

I've seen her in a picture frame
I wished that I could know her name
She comforts me in ways that you will never know
If only she could Come Alive
I'd feel the mysteries in her eye's

Look at me and kiss these lonely lips
You could reach through this frame and feel my face
Let me justify the love I feel for you

Come Alive my precious I'm here for you
All alone, sitting here, with nothing to do.
Track Name: Diamonds In The Skies
Diamonds in The Skies
Author:Angel Ferreira

I felt this before
putting my love in the hands of another
I've seen this before
forgive me and let me be your only lover
confusion is what you feel when love pours out of your soul
learning to live with the uncontrollable passion should be your goal
I see diamonds in the skies
I see moonlight in your eyes
I see raindrops in the skies
I see teardrops in your eye's
Tell me you still hold me close to your heart
diamonds in the skies I see moonlight in your eyes
no woman is an island to herself
wasting our love putting distance between us
why do you do this to yourself
blow some breath in this love let emotions consume us
runaway hearts seem to always find themselves alone
always know that the love in your heart will always have a home
I see diamonds in the skies
I see moonlight in your eyes
I see raindrops in the skies
I see teardrops in your eye's
Tell me you still hold me close to your heart
diamonds in the skies I see moonlight in your eyes
I thought I felt this all before
the hold that I'm in will it ever release me
have you wore these shoes before
the hole in your sole only heals when you forgive me.
runaway hearts seem to always find themselves alone
always know that the love in your heart will always have a home
I see diamonds in the skies
I see moonlight in your eyes
I see raindrops in the skies
I see teardrops in your eye's
Tell me you still hold me close to your heart
diamonds in the skies I see moonlight in your eyes
Track Name: The Latin Mack
Narrative intro:
It is the fantasy of every Vato to dance the role of the mambero
to dance on time and to smoke cigarillos and to look real fine
to have the attention of every woman in the room ...

it's your turn to do something with this attention*
Track Name: The Queen of Cool
The Queen of cool
Author: Angel Ferreira

one day there was a man - who clearly ruled
the bleeding hearts around him - were clearly fooled
there was on that stood out among them
she seemed to keep her control
something made the world around him
what he did took it's toll
She can clearly rule this kingdom of cool
in this world of fools - arrived this new reign if cool
let me introduce you to the new - to the new queen of cool
she has touches of Bardot - she why men curse women
only then you'll think you'll know - the reason that god created woman
not even the sultan of brunai - can catch her eye
you won't realized you've sealed your fate - until it's to late
She's the queen of cool - over the men she rules
she;s the queen of cool - over the men she rules
look at yourself man - you don't look to cool

Ha Ha Ha ...So you you had it together

Her make -up is crisp, sharp and clean - and she lets you know it
she clearly makes a scene - out of the men who blow it
and she clearly rules - this kingdom of cool
can you tell have you seen her - I'm the king of fools
she' the queen of cool - and I'm the king of fools
and she clearly rules - this kingdom of cool
how long will this reign go on - it the kingdom of cool
Track Name: What Cha Get (Raga Mambo Mix)
What Cha Get
Author: Angel Ferreira

I was sitting at home wondering what to do with this night
I grabbed my shoes and suit I thought it looked nice
something inside of craved a woman that night
with digits in my pocket I'd hoped they'd be right
you never - never know - know what you get when you call
you never - never know - know what you get when you call
I'll call this number right now before it gets late
can we have a dinner and dance - meet you at eight
she said yes and now you have a big date
I jumped in my bird - I was ready I straightened my tie
impressed with my ride she looked deep in inside of my eye's
I knew that she'd never gone out with a hot latin guy
you never - never know - know what you get when you call
you never - never know - know what you get when you call
we were bumpin and grindin to mambo the beat was just right
she shacked, she wiggled I swear her skirt was so tight
her friends came over and danced through the night
we all left, we jumped in my bird - they straightened my tie
I left as they slept I'll always remember that night/
you never - never know - know what you get when you call
you never - never know - know what you get when you call
Track Name: Fi Fi Fo Fum
Fe Fi Fo Fum
Author: Angel Ferreira

Like thunder there an angel rocking the heavens above
he's a freak and he's nasty when it comes to love
fallen like rain from the sky here to mend his halo
armed with the rhythm in his feet
zoot suit mackin hard can you feel the beat
Fe fi Fo Fum time to dance to the beat of the funky drum
and it's time to make a move ...down this lonely runway
strolling like he's been gamin for awhile on a lonely sunday
strolling on a boulevard thats for sales
heres a little story that must be told and it's time to rdrop this tale
Fe fi Fo Fum time to dance to the beat of the funky drum

round and round you go you get the feeling that your dazed
down and down you go you get the feeling that your crazed
shake your ass tell me can you feel the rage
if you can't baby let me tell you get of of my stage.

I command you now to move it and I'll tell you just what to do
I ask you now just what you want play this acid latin groove.
Fe fi Fo Fum time to dance to the beat of the funky drum
Fe fi Fo Fum time to dance to the beat of the funky drum
Fe fi Fo Fum time to dance to the beat of the funky drum
Fe fi Fo Fum time to dance to the beat of the funky drum

Mecedes black Gullwing slowly pulling up
glass rolling down I hear a voice calling out
Hmm a get in I don't bite well let me take you for a spin
shiney black trenchcoat and patten leather pumps
and nothing else but the scent of channel No5
Black Mugler gloves I'd be a fool not to take this ride
closing the door behind me she moved around to a dead end street
and thats the tip as she rubbed her tongue across my lip
as she unzips me - she begins to please me
with her big soft mouth and wet lips
Damn ..and the girl thinks I'm a freak
Track Name: BLACK MAMBO
BLACK MAMBO
Author: Angel Ferreira

There a science to dropping hard - cigarettes in your upper left pocket
grab your stacy's and clean them and shine them
and wear them and glare them till your ready to rock it
ant where you walk your gonna make some damage
not just with your silly little rhymes
you gotta look busy when your ready to stroll
making sure your kicks have some shine
jacking hard in a funky place - mackin hard when I'm in your face
you better move it and groove it there ain't nothing to it
cause Black Mambo is here to stay

overtime I walk into a club in NYC and I am ready to stroll
checking reasons why I came making women my superior goal
time is ticking when I rock my rhymes when I wham with you - your gonna move in time
your busy looking for the perfect beat thats gonna make you loose your mind
the elixir of life is ready to be consumed - would you like one? - you can't have one
how'd you like me, then so take a look at me now
and all you asked was when and you question was how?
jacking hard in a funky place - mackin hard when I'm in your eye
you know something girl you better stay with it cause someday your gonna die
theres fever on the dance floor it's gonna make your body work
Black Mambo is the Combo thats gonna make you go bizserk

There's a lot of traffic on the floor you don't need to stand there and pose no more
you play Matt bianco instead of smoking sobraine's serving vogue in front of the door
your tired and your wired and you've worked this town to death
you better take of that fake Versace cause you look like your outta breath
Black Mambo Jack Combo take a bite of my juicy mango
I run my hands up the small of your back like a cat in the night I have to exit stage left
like sinewy carved mahogany the kind I smoothly kiss on the neck
what a feline, with a B-line, my mind is making no sense
jacking hard in a funky place mackin hard when I'm in your face
you better move it and groove it cause Black Mambo is here to stay

I don'y know this state I'm in has me yearning and burning and yearnin
let it go loose control you have to believe in the feelings that burn in your soul ….*

Love Assassin
Autor: Angel Ferreira

Yes I know something thing in my head just told me
I know your secret little girl - eye's are windows to the soul
Just state whats on your mind my heart is marked for you to target
My Love Assassin Whats your fashion
are you a killer of passion
a heart that died many years ago
woke one night to tell me how it died
I listened to this broken ghost
confirmed all my fears
that my love was marked for it's demise
liste lover ….listen lover
yes you are a Love Assassin
is this your fashion
killing passion
it must be true your are
a Love Assassin
"scat"
this time you made one mistake
you let my love creep deep inside
I recognize this badly broken heart
one that woke me late one night
wake your heart from the dead
lover trust me lover trust me
I am no assassin
pain is not my fashion
Love is my passion
I could never be a Love Assassin
a Love Assassin

Frown Of A Clown

I will find...peace of mind
I'll start thinking of you
then you'll know when I do
I'll no longer frown
I can see ..where we will be
If I could change time
to a place or a space
with out a sad face
Like the clown on your bed
and the frown when I'm down
all the things you think that I do
manifest in your mind
where you will find
all of your fears you will find
...that the frown of this clown
and the sound when Im down
will soon change to a smile when I think of you
face your fears that reside in your mind
only then you will find
that you do rule all of my soul
You will find that the frown of this clown
and the sound when Im down
will soon change to a smile
when I think of you
.................this Clown no longer
