"Late in the Evening"    
from Paul Simon
This brassy Latin Merengue will set the dance floor on fire with a mambo line or just some hot Latin flavor.

v.1
First thing I remember I was lying in my bed,
Couldn't've been no more than one or two,
And I remember there's a radio, Coming from the room next door,
While my mother laughed the way some ladies do,
Well, it was late in the evening, and all the music seepin' through.

v.2
Next thing I remember, I am walking down the street,
Feelin' all right with my boys and with my troops, yeah,
Down along the avenue some guys were shooting pool and I
Heard the sound of a cappella groups, yeah,
Singing late in the evening, and all the girls out on the stoops, yeah.

v.3
Then I learned to play some lead guitar, I was underage in this funky bar
And I stepped outside and smoked myself a J,
When I come back to the room, everybody just seemed to move,
And I turned my amp up loud and began to play
It was late in the evening, and I blew that room away.
(Brassy Latin Instrumental Refrain)

v.4
First thing I remember when you came into my life,
Said, I'm gonna get that girl no matter what I do,
Well, I guess I've been in love before
And once or twice been on the floor
But I never loved no one the way that I love you,
And it was late in the evening, and all the music seepin' through.
(Brassy Latin Instrumental Refrain) to end.
