Tampico Trauma - Jimmy Buffett

    I must look a mess I must admit
    But I have been travelling quite a bit
    South of the Border
    Where the law and order
    Is kept by Federales who just grin
    And tell you they just want to be your friend

    I left for Tampico last July
    I jumped off that boat I almost died
    There to greet us
    Were pretty senoritas
    I swore that I would not go home then
    All those lovely ladies were my friends
    Whoa, those sweet chiquitas they don't pretend

    -- Spoken: "Como esta, Capitain..."

    That is all I really want to say
    I was thrown out of the country yesterday
    See I was, drinkin' double
    Causin' lots of trouble
    When the man looked in the window of the bar and he grinned
    And said, "If you come back we just may not be your friend"
    "I don't want to see you 'round here again"
    "If you come back next time we may not..." (Hidy ho' boys!)
