[Chorus] Well, they say time loves a hero But only time will tell If he's real, he's a legend from heaven If he ain't, he was sent here from hell
Hear me well Seein' ain't always believin' Just make sure it's the truth that you're seein' Eyes sometimes lie, eyes sometimes lie They can be real deceivin'
I got an Uncle in Puerto Rico Spends his days in the sun His nights in the casinos He left the States many years ago Took a fishin' boat to Puerto Rico Now my aunt - she is sad and lonely She'll never know that she drove him away As a coward I admire his courageous ways
Some say my uncle - that he's a zero His life is as a shell; he left it back at Stateside I'd say he's doin' pretty well without his shell Bumming 'round the beaches of Puerto Rico
The beauty of the sunrise and sunset To his friends he wish he could tell They're at home still runnin' for bells Better San Juan than that blue collar hell
