New Delhi at 3 A.M.
Just arrived by KLM
Left the airport in the heat
In the bus, strange people meet

Driving through the starless night
Passing very unusual sights
Left the bus at five to five
Caught a taxi, started to drive

He thought I was a millionaire
And accordingly put up the fair
Dawn was breaking in the East
Causing this hot night to cease

Mosquito buzzing in my ears
Grating sound of clashing gears
Burning rubber through the air
Taxi driver began to swear

The heat was burning
My head was turning
It was then the car broke down
Just on the outskirts of town

A camel from Derangdera
Silently passed by our car
A vulture circled high above in the air
I had to shade my eyes to to cover the glare

Sweating in the plastic seats
Hard to breath in the increasing heat?
Lying back my mind started
To drift into a in easy sleep
I dreamt I was in New Delhi
Dying slowly of La Grippe

Songwriters
Barson, Michael
