The Lyrics

It's funny how you look as if you're right next door
When you're 4000 miles away
I just can't wait for my cellphone to ring
Technology has come such a long way

I can remember when I only had snail
It was almost more than I could bear
It took more than a week to hear from my friends
Even when I was still living up there

And our mountains are just like the Rockies, you see
With the same old smog up in the sky
And your cellphone pics are so funny to me
Like the llamas here in Abancay

There are lovers who talk with their cellphones all night
and lovers who chat on IM
There are lovers who e-mail their pics back and forth
But will they ever walk hand in hand?

Oh, I couldn't meet you even if I wanted to
I can't afford the sky-high air fare
And every day I see the photos of you
You're on my desktop in your skimpy swimwear

And our mountains are just like the Rockies, you see
With the same old smog up in the sky
And your cellphone pics are so funny to me
Like the llamas here in Abancay

Mountain llamas, cute and dainty, prancing here and there
Mountain llamas, soft and furry, remind me of your mounted deer

And our mountains are just like the Rockies, you see
With the same old smog up in the sky
And your cellphone pics are so funny to me
Like the llamas here in Abancay
Just like the llamas here in Abancay

I wondered if this might be backwards... but "Samall Yacnaba" doesn't make any sense.

Abancay is a city high in the Andes, between Ayacucho and Cuzco, east of Andahuaylas. And there are lots of llamas there, as well as alpacas and vicuñas. Of course I live in Lima where the jobs are, but I sometimes travel to the provinces :) --MM
