Les Humphries Singers Mexico Liedtext

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

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.
