Lyrics:
"Mmm, watch it, man, yeah, yeah"

I am drinkin'
I am rollin' (and you can't stop)
I am howlin'
I am runnin' (and you can't stop)

But I'll never forget you, ay
But I'll never forget you, ay
But I'll never forget you, ay
But I'll never forget you

I am drinkin'
I am rollin' (and you can't stop)
I am howlin'
I am runnin' (and you can't stop)

But I'll never forget you, ay
But I'll never forget you, ay
But I'll never forget you, ay
But I'll never forget you

Soon I think, do you realise
Thatís his blood began to turn
I'm comin' down to sit here
To kick the one and to
Go feel the one, for as I am
The desert came and swallowed me up
From this place I was born
