Women can be sports widows when husbands take to the tube,Guest Posting 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’
