"So if you're sitting all alone and hear a-knocking at you door
and the air is full of promises, well buddy, you've been warned
Far worse to be Love's lover than the lover that Love has scorned"

("Let Love In", 1994)

King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o
Well frog went a-courtin' and he did ride Il Signor Ranocchio si mise a corteggiare e cavalcò
With a sword and a pistol by his side Di spada e di pistola armato
And he rode 'til he came to Miss Mouse's door Cavalcò e giunse a casa della Signora Topolina
And then he knelt right down upon the floor E là sul pavimento si inginocchiò
He said, "Little Miss Mouse, will you marry me Disse, “Signore Topolina, vorresti sposarmi?”
Way down yonder in the hollow tree Laggiù nel profondo di un albero cavo
With an owl and a bat and a bumblebee?" Con una civetta, un pipistrello e un bombo
King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o
Miss Mouse had suitors, three or four La Signora Topolina aveva tre o quattro corteggiatori
And they came rushing through the door Che irruppero in casa correndo da fuori
Well they grabbed Miss Mouse and began to fight Afferrarono Topolina e cominciarono a combattere
In the hollow tree; it was a terrible night Nell'albero cavo fu una notte terribile
Yeah, "Little Miss Mouse, will you marry me “Signorina Topolina, vorresti sposarmi?”
Way down yonder in the hollow tree Laggiù nel profondo di un albero cavo
With an owl and a bat and a bumblebee?" Con una civetta, un pipistrello e un bombo
King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o
Mr Frog threw her suitors to the floor Il Signor Ranocchio mise al tappeto i corteggiatori
And with his sword and his pistol he killed them all Con la spada e la pistola li fece fuori
And they went to the vicar the very next day Il giorno dopo andarono dal vicario
And they left on their honeymoon right away E partirono in luna di miele subito dopo
Oh glory, glory, glory be Che la gloria sia con loro
Way down yonder in the hollow tree Laggiù nel profondo dell'albero cavo
With an owl and a bat and a bumblebee Con una civetta, un pipistrello e un bombo
King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o King kong kitchee kitchee ki-mi-o
