Tropical Chancer

Album: Trouble in Paradise (2014)
  • He'll take the money and the food that's in your hand
    But you have to understand that he's a dreamer
    Living my life within a mile you could believe
    This place turns honest men to thieves

    And I could see it in his eyes
    He was the type to sail off in the night

    I met him through a dancer
    Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
    A tropical chancer, didn't know he was a tropical chancer

    I met him through a dancer
    Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
    A tropical chancer, didn't know he was a tropical chancer

    He'll trade your loving for the things he's never seen
    The places he has never been
    Oh but remember he is just a good pretender
    And he doesn't give his love away for free

    And I could see it in his eyes
    He was the type to sail off in the night

    I met him through a dancer
    Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
    A tropical chancer, didn't know he was a tropical chancer

    I met him through a dancer
    Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
    A tropical chancer, didn't know he was a tropical chancer

    I met him through a dancer
    Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
    A tropical chancer, didn't know he was a tropical chancer

    I met him through a dancer
    Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
    A tropical chancer, didn't know he was a tropical chancer Writer/s: JEFF BHASKER, GRACE JONES, ELLY JACKSON, IAN SHERWIN
