Down in Mexico

Down in Mexico

Ich erinner mich noch genau an den Tag vor 2 Jahren als mir eine Frau erzählt hat, das die Wolken in Mexixo die schönsten der Welt sind. An diesem Tag waren die Wolken auch in Stuttgart wunderschön, es war sonnig und Wind hat geweht. Zumindest in meiner Erinnerung. Und ich hab zu dieser Zeit so viele Wolken fotografiert. Und obwohl es nur ein kleiner Satz am Rande war, geht er mir nicht mehr aus dem Kopf.

Down in Mexico – Lyrics

Down in the Mexicali
There’s a crazy little place that I know
Where the drinks are hotter  than the chili sauce
And the boss is a cat named Joe

(Chorus)
He wears a red bandana
Plays a cool piana (piano is pronounced piana in this song)
In a honky tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
In honky tonk, down in Mexico

Well, the first time that I saw him
He was sittin on a piano stool
I said „Tell me man, when does the fun begin?“
He just winked his eye and said „Man, be cool.“

(Chorus)
He wears a red bandana
Plays a cool piana
In a honky tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
In a honky tonk, down in Mexico

In Mexico…
All of a sudden in walks a chick
In Mexico…
Joe starts playin on a latin kick
In Mexico…
Around her waist she wore three fishnets
In Mexico…
She started dancin with the castanets
In Mexico…
I didn’t know just what to expect
In Mexico…
She threw her arms around my neck
In Mexico…

We started dancin all around the floor
And then she did a dance I never saw before

So if you’re south of the border
I mean down in Mexico
And you wanna get straight
Man, don’t hesitate
Just look up a cat named Joe

(Chorus)
He wears a red bandana
Plays a cool piana
In a honky tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
In a honky tonk, down in Mexico

Yeah, como esta usted senorita
Come with me to the border, south of the border, that is
In Mexico, yeah in Mexico
You can get your kicks in Mexico
Come with me baby, come with me, come with me, crazy, yeah
