Lyrics

Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico In 1580 we sailed our little ship Around the coast of Africa down the Gaza strip We took some salty bacon and a hammock for a bed Then we mixed it with the Spaniards in the middle of the Med Well we hired our funds saw the pretty girls a comin' There wasn't quite as many as there was a while ago We hired some more and then we started runnin' All down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico Well Francis Drake said if you really want a fight The best thing is to catch them in the middle of the night We hoisted anchor and powdered up the gun Then we sailed around in circles and just waited for the fun Well we hired our funds saw the pretty girls a comin' There wasn't quite as many as there was a while ago We hired some more and then we started runnin' All down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico M-E-X-I-C-O Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico Well cannon balls flew and the ship began to sink The water started risin' so we really had to think And then by chance stood a man as black as coal So we grabbed him by the trousers and we plugged him in the hole Well we hired our funds saw the pretty girls a comin' There wasn't quite as many as there was a while ago We hired some more and then we started runnin' All down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico Well we fired from the side port and we fired from the back And then we fired from the galley and through every little crack We fired so much that the cook started cooking Didn't have to worry so we flew the Union Jack Well we hired our funds saw the pretty girls a comin' There wasn't quite as many as there was a while ago We hired some more and then we started runnin' All down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Well we hired our funds saw the pretty girls a comin' There wasn't quite as many as there was a while ago We hired some more and then we started runnin' All down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Well we hired our funds saw the pretty girls a comin' There wasn't quite as many as there was a while ago We hired some more and then we started runnin' All down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico
