|The Toluenes - "Mexico"|
It was sundown in a border town,
On the wrong side of the border.
I saw my girlfriend with her husband.
And he didn't seem to like the show.
So, we packed up and we broke brush.
Eight Coronas and a jar of change.
Danny spoke up and said to head south.
We'd make some money in Mexico.
I told him, "I ain't gonna do it.
Ain't gonna go.
Cause I ain't got no business,
Down in Mexico.
And senorita is all the Spanish I know."
He just smiled and said,
"Senor, you're gonna do fine."
It was ten miles in a pickup,
Dodging bullets all along the way.
The sun beat down, the truck heated up.
We had to pour the beer in the reservoir.
Showed my name card to the border guard.
Chewed my nails as he checked me out.
I took a deep breath when he came back.
Then, he nodded and he waved me through.
Now, it was sundown in a border town,
On the south side of the border.
I climbed onto a stool and I summoned the barkeep,
And I'm not all that sure what was said after that
But I told her cerveca, bano,
And senorita is all the Spanish I know.
And she just smiled and said, "Senor"
Yeah, she just smiled and said, "Hombre"
Yeah, she just smiled and I ain't never going back to Tennessee.
