Women can be sports widows when husbands take to the tube, but what’s a man to do when his lady love is a hang-glider? Cyril May and Jack McDonald explore this question in their playful tune, Macho Mountain Mama on their CD, "Off The Beaten Track."
‘When warm winds from the valleys
Sweep on up the mountain side
When the thermals are a pumping all around
When the birds are all grounded
‘Cause the wind’s too rough to fly
Then Macho Mountain Mama’s up there flyin’ high.’
In the song, Cyril’s lyrics show a real appreciation for the adventurous woman obsessed with a pastime that leaves her man far below. But a twinge of jealousy for her high-flying freedom comes through as well. The lilting instrumentals add bounce to the piece, and keep our feet tapping along in time. Jack McDonald adds his special arrangements to the mix, and the result is a musical romp.
‘She’s my Macho Mountain Mama
Like a bird, her spirit’s free
She flies a big hang-glider through the skies
And I feel up there she’s closer
To her real true love than me
And I envy how my Macho Mountain Mama flies’
