Mozambique
Bob Dylan Lyrics


I like to spend some time in Mozambique
The sunny sky is aqua blue
And all the couples dancing cheek to cheek
It's very nice to stay a week or two
And maybe fall in love, just me and you

There's lots of pretty girls in Mozambique
And plenty time for good romance
And everybody likes to stop and speak
To give the special one you seek a chance
And maybe say hello with just a glance

Lying next to her by the ocean
Reaching out and touching her hand
Whispering your secret emotion
Magic in a magical land

And when it's time for leaving Mozambique
To say goodbye to sand and sea
You turn around to take a final peek
And you see why it's so unique to be
Among the lovely people living free
Upon the beach of sunny Mozambique

As a kid I dreamt of 'dark' Africa, such luring names as Moçambique, Bechuanaland (Botswana now), ... Dylan's Desire was my favourite album, still is. I managed to get a job there in the 1990s, the first time I saw Mozambique was from the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe, the Bvumba Mountains 'in the mist'; there, in the distance, shimmered Lago Chicamba Real, Manicaland,... Later I went there many times, the Paradise Islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago, Ilha de Moçambique, a country devastated by war, and now a cyclone. Some visits were 'illegal' as it was possible to cross the border between Zimbabwe and Mozambique without problem (in such places as Marumbini, Chimanimani, Crooks' Corner, ... ), although I was once arrested in a place called Chiqualaquala for border hopping, was not my fault but that of the Zimbabwean officials. I escaped death a couple of times in this country, which at the time was considered the poorest nation in the world: a serious bout of malaria in Nampula, a near-fatal motorbike accident on the 'Gun Run', dodged a 'very close call' elephant attack (a bull elephant with bullet wounds) at Mavué-Massangena. I was often thinking of this song, had it played out loud in a place called Xai-Xai, where poor quality 'bootleg music cassettes' could be bought (mentioning Bob Dylon on the cover) at an Indian store. I still have those ... And yes, there are lots of pretty girls in Mozambique, living under an aqua-blue sunny sky. Met an American woman at Clovelli Lodge in Masvingo, Zimbabwe, who asked me 'How is Mozambique, is it like the Bob Dylan song??'. Little did she know that in my music collection I have more than 300 copies of the 7' of this song, which is crazy and nothing to boast about at all. Just managed to buy a huge batch of the Portuguese pressing of this song, an old stock, vinyl that was never played, and just hang on to them for some reason, just for fun I guess. I must have played this song 1000x or more, and still counting. Just sayin'.

@Ironflazambat Great adventures can be had in a quiet room alone with a book on your lap. Or with one other person at a table under the trees in a back yard, looking at each other past a bottle of wine. Airplanes to Africa or anywhere else simply don't have to enter into it.
