Songtekst

Sing Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, ooh
Sing Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, ooh

In 1814
We took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson
Down the Mississip'
We took a little bacon
And we took a little beans
And we went and fought the British
In the town of New Orleans

Well we fired our guns
And the British kept a-coming
There wasn't quite as many
As there was a while ago
We fired once more
And then we started running
On down the Mississippi
To the Gulf of Mexico

Sing Mexico, Mexico, ooh
Sing Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, ooh

Old Hick'ry said
We could take 'em by surprise
If we didn't fire our muskets
Til we looked 'em in the eyes
We held our fire
Till we saw their faces well
Then we opened up our muskets
And we really gave 'em hell

We fired our guns
And the British kept a-coming
There wasn't quite as many
As there was a while ago
We fired once more
And then we started running
On down the Mississippi
To the Gulf of Mexico

Sing Mexico, Mexico, ooh
Sing Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, ooh

Mexico Mexico Mexico Mexico Mexico

I said Me (Me)
X (X), I, C, O

Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, ooh
Sing Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, ooh

We fired our guns, and the British kept a-coming
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
They fired once more and then we start to running
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
