Bolobolo Woman (original song)

Bolobolo Woman

This song has a long history, most of the history is in my head.

My friend Moses — the same Moses who got into a bar fight years ago — asked me to find him an American wife. Moses had some mental health problems which led his wife to move out. For some reason he believed that an American woman would be more faithful.

I kept this song in my head as a very inside joke. But in 2008, another friend from Cameroon, Gregory — the same Gregory with the frozen fish store — came to attend my wedding. I told him about the song idea. He liked it, and helped me tweak the lyrics into better Kamtok (a.k.a. Cameroonian Pidgin English).

The Lyrics and English Translation are available here >>

I never recorded it until now. I thought I’d try it on my Madagascan kabosy.

Since Moses was a musician; a saxophonist, among other things, I added this sax solo from a website called Looperman.

In case you can’t make out the lyrics, in the song, I do find Moses a faithful American woman — an inflatable sex doll.

    Thank you, Chuck!

    How well would this go over in Portland?

    It went over well with me!

    Portland is not like Portlandia. Quite frankly, it isn;t that much different than Flagstaff. Just bigger. So it would probably go over well.
