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
