Paroles

Mexico, Mexico !
Sing, 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,
Sing Mexico,
Mexico
Sing 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! Sing Mexico!
Mexico, Mexico!
Sing Mexico!
Mexico!

Yeah, yeah
Mexico yeah yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah
Mexico yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah
Mexico yea yeah
Oh oh
Mexico yea yeah
Oh oh oh
Mexico
Oh oh oh
M-E-X-I-C-O

Mexico! Mexico! Mexico!
Mexico! Mexico!
Sing 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

Si on s'attarde un peu plus sur les paroles des couplets, mis à part le fait qu'on frise le grand n'importe quoi, bein… ils ne mettent ni les pieds au Mexique ni même à la ville de México… Ils aperçoivent juste le Golfe du Mexique au delta du Mississippi à la fin de leur voyage très mouvementé parti du Proche-Orient… Bref, une inspiration tout droit sorti de la littérature coloniale, des récits de missions de Walter Raleigh ou toutes celles proto-Mayflower, des batailles entre explorateurs anglais et l'Invincible armada, des histoires de pirates et de prostituées… Mais alors pourquoi le titre s'appelle "Mexico"? Grand mystère…
