Quote

If Latin America had not been pillaged by the U.S. capital since its independence, millions of desperate workers would not now be coming here in such numbers to reclaim a share of that wealth; and if the United States is today the world’s richest nation, it is in part because of the sweat and blood of the copper workers of Chile, the tin miners of Bolivia, the fruit pickers of Guatemala and Honduras, the cane cutters of Cuba, the oil workers of Venezuela and Mexico, the pharmaceutical workers of Puerto Rico, the ranch hands of Costa Rica and Argentina, the West Indians who died building the Panama Canal, and the Panamanians who maintained it.

lyrics:

I would lie to the world for just a moment with you

Why should we care what they say, forget the shit that they do

I’ll wait for your call, I know exactly what to do

Just ask the driver for the key to your room You open the door, I’ll put my hands on you

Cause words are no match for what your body will do

When I look in your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes I love those diamond eyes, your diamond eyes The door stand beats between me and you You touch my skin and I love this through Oho, ooo, in your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes

I can tell that you want a nice girl like me. I’ve been desperate for someone to set me free, Oh, just wait for my call, you know exactly what to do Make sure no one sees on the way to my room

I open the door, you put your hands on me Show me the lover I am Iallowed to be

When I, look in your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes– I love, for your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes The door stand beats between me and you You touch my skin and I love this through Oho, ooo, in your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes

In a world of lies, you are the truth. If I’m going down, I’ll go down on you I’ll go down with you

When I, look in your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes I love, for your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes The door stand beats between me and you You touch my skin and I love this through Oho, ooo, in your diamond eyes, your diamond eyes.
