lyrics

Back in Montreal
when we started the band
babe, we played it all
gave no thought to the brand
through the days and months and years
it just became rock & roll
all the layers disappeared
somewhere we lost the soul
we had in Montreal
when we started the band

CHORUS:
I miss, I miss the congas
where did they go?
I miss, I miss the congas
the congas from long ago

Billy said that we
had to slim it all down
just keep the melodies
but not too crazy a sound
how do we get back to where
we first felt something beautiful?
now it seems we only care
to play when the seats are full
Billy said that we
had to slim it all down

CHORUS

Maybe after all these years
we’re just too comfortable
but I remember a love so clear
our love was magical

CHORUS
