By Duran Duran
Moving on the floor now babe you’re a bird of paradise
Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it’s very nice
With a step to your left and a flick to the right you catch that mirror way out west
You know you’re something special and you look like you’re the best
Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
And when she shines she really shows you all she can
Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande
I’ve seen you on the beach and I’ve seen you on TV
Two of a billion stars
It means so much to me, Like a birthday or a pretty view
But then I’m sure that you know it’s just for you
Hey now woo look at that did she nearly run you down
At the end of the drive the lawmen arrive
You make me feel alive, alive alive
I’ll take my chance cause luck is on my side or something
I know what you’re thinking I tell you something I know what you’re thinking
Her name is Rio she don’t need to understand
And I might find her if I’m looking like I can
Oh Rio, Rio hear them shout across the land
From mountains in the north down to the Rio Grande
M: “It means so much to me, Like a birthday or a pretty view / But then I’m sure that you know it’s just for you”
This song is full of lyrics that just rhyme for rhyming’s sake.
I like cake.
Wake and bake.
