South America | Brazil | Southern Brazil – mondegrenes
My friend Megan has a brother, James, and my friend Manjula knows said James, as do Rhys and Gry and all the other hep cats from Santa Cruz, California.
And James had a band, called … help me out here SC kids, what was it? … anyway they sang a song called ‘Santa Cruz’ about, you guessed it, a small, pastoral, calm, strange, mostly German town in the south of Brasil.
Oh wait. Now I’m ALL KINDS of confused.
Anyway my favorite (misheard) lyric of James’ nameless-to-me band goes, ‘I know a place to go where people pee chartreuse… Santa Cruz Santa Cruz…’
now, I recognize these might not in fact be the EXACT lyrics. But to me this adds a certain, shall we say, élan to the whole affair. What kind of a town creates such urinary freaks!? and why isn’t Jon Stewart on this?
