In Mexico

Aimee Mann

Big veranda
Stately trees
Servants bring me fruit and cheese
Flowers bloom and
Feed their bees
Underneath the Sword of Damocles

—————-
And I’m shooting speed
‘Cause that’s what I do
When I can’t get what I need from you
In Mexico

————–
Every Eden
Has its price
Here you have to pay it twice
Servants bring me beans and rice
But there’s snakes in every Paradise

—————
‘Cause I’m shooting speed
And that’s what I do
When I can’t get what I need from you
In Mexico
In Mexico

————
I’m the crazy one they can point to
I’m the one who’s taking the heat
So I slip out at night
And walk through the street

————-
I say “yes sir”
I say “ma’am”
When they ask me who I think I am
Servants bring me steak and lamb
While I measure by the milligram

—————-
And I’m shooting speed
‘Cause that’s what I do
When I can’t get what I need from you
In Mexico
In Mexico
Oh, in Mexico
