Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Mexican name song lyrics )
( TUJUNGA, CUCAMONGA )

On YouTube, performed LIVE by MICK TERRY (soon!)
I met her at a party that I crashed once with a friend.
She, too, was uninvited: a requirement to attend.
I can't say that we hit it off so exactly well at first.
In making good impressions, it seems I did my worst.
I stammered and I stuttered like I'd never done before.
I stumbled over someone and I fell into the door,
stupid bumpkin who'd arrived fresh off the farm.
But in a while she starts to see I've got a certain charm.
CAHUENGA, TOPANGA, TUJUNGA, CUCAMONGA
Just where was it she said that she was moving to?
Canoga, Cordova, Covina or Corona:
The hottest thing going and I've no way of knowing
the town that is going to be her new home.
When I tell you she's a hot one, well you know we're talking steam:
a blistering inferno that can only live in dreams.
That she might give a second chance or a third one was insane.
But there we were still talking as the party's growing late.
We had so much so in common that we struck a 2-note chord,
a harmony of feelings that would sing with every word.
But then her friends came over & insist it's time to leave.
& since she drove them in her car, she said goodbye to me.
They've started to be sounding all too much the same.
I'm not sure what I heard, but I know that the word
was a definite Mexican name.
She told me that she's moving & was now without a phone,
but said that I should give a week and to then use 411.
She shouted where she's moving to as she pulled her car away.
But a passing motorcycle drowned out the city's name.
Operators couldn't help me, what with no specific town.
For 3 weeks, I've been trying. Now I'm starting to get down.
So here am I out driving on this freeway parking lot,
just trying to find the big green sign that points to where it's hot.
[spoken] Toluca, that's it! That's definitely it!
Or maybe it was Laguna? Or maybe El Segundo?
Alta Loma or Alhambra?
Encino, Hermosa? Reseda or Redondo?
La Crescenta, La Cañada? ...
