LES HUMPHRIES SINGERS - Mexico
Sing Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico

In 1580 we sailed our little ship
around the coast
Of Acrica 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

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.

Sing Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico

We cannon balls flew
and the ship began to sink,
The water stated 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.

Sing 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.
