Mesopotamia

Album: Mesopotamia (1981)
  • Turn your watch, turn your watch back
    About a hundred thousand years
    A hundred thousand years

    I'll meet you by the third pyramid
    I'll meet you by the third pyramid
    Ah come on, that's what I want
    We'll meet in Mesopotamia, oh-oh-oh

    I ain't no student (we're goin' down to meet, feel those vibrations)
    Of ancient culture (I know a neat excavation)
    Before I talk
    I should read a book
    But there's one thing
    That I do know
    There's a lot of ruins in Mesopotamia

    Six or eight thousand years ago
    They laid down the law
    Six or eight thousand years ago (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, ooooh)
    They laid down the law (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, ooooh)

    I'll meet you by the third pyramid
    I'll meet you by the third pyramid
    Ah come on, that's what I want
    We'll meet in Mesopotamia, oh-oh-oh

    Now I ain't no student (we're goin' down to meet, feel those vibrations)
    Of ancient culture (I know a neat excavation)
    Before I talk
    I should read a book
    (Mesopotamia, that's where I wanna go)
    But there's one thing that
    I do know (Mesopotamia, that's where I wanna go)
    There's a lot of ruins in Mesopotamia

    Six or eight thousand years ago
    They laid down the law
    Six or eight thousand years ago (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, ooooh)
    They laid down the law (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, ooooh)
    In Mesopotamia (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, ooooh)

    They laid down the law (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, ooooh)
    In Mesopotamia (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, ooooh) Writer/s: CINDY WILSON, CYNTHIA WILSON, FRED SCHNEIDER, KATE PIERSON, KEITH STRICKLAND, RICKY WILSON
