Colada – Spice From Hong Kong To Paris
There was a time I loved my spice.
A little zing of fiery blast taste in my rice.
But, my maid Larda loved her Colada,
So did Moina and my dog Dada.
Now my new name is Colada-Spice.
There was a time when I was strong.
Not least challenged to play Ping-Pong.
Those years have gone, now that am old.
Feeling so weak, can’t be too bold.
I live in Hong Kong, farewell my song.
There was a time when I was stunning.
A strange young man gave me a ring.
Are you for real? Give me a scarf!
I may be short, but not a dwarf.
While in Paris, we had a fling in the spring.
