  1. <br>Cartagena

From the recording &lt;br&gt;Cartagena

Probably the only song I ever set out to write in absolute imitation of another songwriter I'm trying to emulate. That's because I have no idea how John Fogerty and others like him can write such exceedingly simple songs that are so appealing - I always tend to complicate things in order to make my songs interesting and different. So I sat down and tried to write a song that John Fogerty may have written. What do you think?

Lyrics

Cartagena
 
Yeah Cartagena
Oh my Cartagena
You’re the one, I blame ye’
For nights so right
 
Ah senorita
Oh my senorita
I just want to see you
In white tonight
 
I’ll never say goodbye
Never wonder why
I can’t tell you
Cartagena
Yeah, I blame ye’
Senorita
I want to see you now
 
Well la Jolina
Oh my la Jolina
You are my gardenia
So white so light
 
I’ll never say goodbye
Never wonder why
I can’t tell you
La Jolina
My gardenia
Senorita
I want to see you now
 
I love you love me I do
 
Hey Cartagena
The world can’t contain ye’
You’re the one, I blame ye’
For nights so right
 
Hey Cartagena
