Songtekst

{transcribed by Adri Verhoef, 03-01-2021}

Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, oho
(Sing) Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, oh

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

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

Mexico, (Sing) Mexico, oho
(Sing) Mexico, Mexico, (Sing) Mexico, oh

Well we looked down the river
Till we see the British come
There must have been a hundred
Of them beatin' on the drum
They stepped so high
And we heard the people sing
Well we stood beside our cotton bales
And never said a thing

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

Mexico, (Sing) Mexico, oho
(Sing) Mexico, Mexico, (Sing) Mexico, oh

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Mexico / Yeah yeah yeah
Where they had to go
Yeah yeah yeah
Mexico / Yeah yeah yeah
Really didn't know
Yeah yeah yeah
Can we get them now
Mexico / Yeah yeah yeah
Oh-oho-oho
Can we get them now
Mexico
Oh-oho-oho
Can we get them now
Mexico
Oh-oho-oho

M-E (E), X (X), I, C, O

Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, oho
Mexico, Mexico, (Sing) Mexico, oh

When we're speaking of them
We could take them by surprise
If we didn't fire our muskets
Till we look 'em in the eyes
We stood quite still
Till we see their faces well
Then we opened up our muskets
And we really gave them hell

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

Mexico, (Sing) Mexico, oho
Mexico, Mexico, (Sing) Mexico, oh

Well they ran through the briars
They ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes
Where the rabbits couldn't go
They ran so fast
That the hounds couldn't catch 'em
On down the Mississippi
To the Gulf of Mexico

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

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

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

Mexico, Mexico, oho
Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, oho
Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, oho
Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, oho
Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, oho
