FOGO FOGO (BOTTLE BREAKERs)



SYNOPSIS:

The essence of the tune's lyrics is about him having a big party featuring his band, where performed his hit songs and served assortments of liquor until his guests consumed them all and left him with empty bottles. He got broke as a result.

When he couldn't afford to buy any more liquor for his guests, a riot ensued; the irate and drunk guests started breaking the empty bottles. He got further into debt too as a result of the broken bottles because he could not return them to collect his bottle deposit. Hence, his "FOGO FOGO" dilemma.
