Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap
Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap

Chip-chip-chipper up in the crow's nest
Upside down face but it still saw a lot
Flaking off, breaking off, crumbled and cracking
Time will destroy you like a Mexican god

Dreaming your eyes away, closed to the future
Pray for amnesia to finish you off
This is the evil I wished on so many
Time will destroy you like a Mexican god

Moon in a cup, crushed garlic and babies
Sailors all stagnant and bloating and rough
The horror of you floats so close by my window
At least when I die, your memory will too

Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap
Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap

Cruel, magnificent, roasting your people
I am secure at the end of your rod
Cut out my heart and it flies to the ceiling
Time will destroy you like a Mexican god
Time will destroy you like a Mexican god
Time will destroy you

Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap
Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap
Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap
Oooh, wap shoo wadda dap
Oooh

Funny, that little, rimshot- rockabilly like rhythm, throughout the song. An element that keeps it going very much, while it isn't obvious at all, for a song like this.
i really don't get the appeal...
Talk about banal. Worst waste of 3 cords. I could walk faster than this song, even with a hangover.
Or Concrete Blonde's "Mexican Moon"
How about John Prine's Mexican Home??
How about the Pogues "Mexican Funeral in Paris"?
Yes! A great sample of Robyn's genius! I'd like to sing this to a certain unnamed U.S. President.

Yes, I think this song totally crashed like a kamikaze... what a way to destroy a music bolck....
Coffee in hand, morning paper splayed out before me, I comptemplate my actions on a Saturday full of grim obligations. Waiter, more humor - and make it dark this time!
Blecky. :headshake:

Oh my. So, does this guy have any good songs?
Different but not too bad. I think better than most people rated... (pimp)
Does this song ever end?! :frustrated:
Call it intuition, but something tells me Robyn\'s not real fond of her at this moment, whoever she is. :eek:
Yikes,:eek: listening to some of these lyrics without first noting the title causes some alarm! Unusual subject matter, but liked it.
Special! He sounds like a youthful singer, but happens to be a veteran.
i like it. :bounce:
