Went to the Five And Dime
Bought myself a copy of Time
And on the cover was a woman that I knew
When I was excavating in the mountains of Peru

Caught a plane to L.I.A.
Didn't know what I would say
Maybe she would like me, I had lost a lot of weight
Since she had last seen me in 1988

Went to a local bar, ordered a cerveza
Asked a man about the woman on the cover
Dijo, "Claro que si, es El Presidente's daughter"
Asked him where she might be

"You did not hear this from me, the girl is a terrorista
En Las Montanas a Chuquibambilla"
Took a bus through mountains
Oh, my head was pounding

Got to stay strong and carry on
Got to stay strong, it won't be long
Arrived in the villa, surrounded by guerrillas
Then my girl took me in her arms

She said, "How have you been?
Oh, but I'll see you again"
I woke up in a coffin underneath
An altar to the east of Machu Pichu

Crawled from the Royal Tomb
The sun was bright, it burned my eyes
I knew that she was gone
So I went down to the riverside, I cried
Down to the riverside, I cried

I went down to the riverside
I went down and I cried
I went down to the riverside
I went down and I cried

Muchas veces, I don't know if I'm coming or I'm going
Muchas veces, I'm at a loss as what to do
Muchas veces, I don't know if I'm coming or I'm going
Muchas veces, I'm at a loss as what to do

I went down to the riverside, I cried
Down to the riverside and I cried

My friend said, "She's nothing but pain"
I said, "I still love her the same
All she needs is a little bit of love and
I'm sure I can make her change some"

"What about that girl in Zaire
That you met while a volunteer?
She got quite the education and
Quite the pair of legs on her"

"Oh, she married an Englishman
Correspondent for CNN
She thought he was rather handsome
In a UN blue flak jacket

Oh, I see where your coming from
But for me there is no other one
I must be on my merry way

Went to the Five And Dime
Bought myself a copy of Time
And on the cover was a woman that I knew
Claiming she was a Kahuna down on Oahu

Caught a plane to H.I.A.
The sun was bright, it burned my eyes
I knew that she was near because I felt
Shivers on my spine, I felt fine

Shivers on my spine
