Mexico
Les Humphries Singers Lyrics


(Sing, Mexico)

In fifteen hundred and eighty we sailed our little ship
Around the coast of Africa 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, 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

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, Mexico
Yeah, yeah
Mexico yea yeah
Yeah, yeah
Mexico yea yeah
Yeah, yeah
Mexico yea yeah
Oh oh
Mexico yea yeah
Oh oh oh
Mexico
Oh oh oh
M-E-X-I-C-O
Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico, Mexico

Well cannon balls flew and the ship began to sink
The water started 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

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, 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

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

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

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

Из солистов этого ансамбля Леса Хамфри в дальнейшем прославились Лиз Митчелл в Бони М и Джон Лоутон в Юрая Хип. Джон Лоутон покинул этот мир летом 2021 году. Вечная память прекрасному певцу. Царство небесное тебе Джон. Мы любим твои песни. Аминь!!!

Виктор Волков

@1983 ****** Лоутон это вообще отдельная строка в биографии Юрай Хип

Я благодарю тех, кто выложил песни этой группы в Ютубе и желаю вам здоровья и всех благ. Это моя любимая песня!!! Как смотрю этот клип, сердце моё устремляется в 70-годы, годы моей юности, к вам на концерт. Я считаю эту группу высоко профессиональной, как слушаю, так вспоминаю свою молодость. Дай Бог вам ребята группы Лёса Хамфри всех благ и достойной старости. Всем кто любит и слушает эту песню, всех благ!!!
