Morrissey Mexico Lyrics

Last updated: 10/09/2012 11:07:18 AM

In Mexico
I went for a walk to inhale
The tranquil, cool, lover's air
I could taste a trace
Of American chemical waste
And the small voice said
"What can we do?"

In Mexico
I went for a walk to inhale
The tranquil, cool, lover's air
I could sense the hate
from the lonestar state
And a small voice said
"What can we do?"

It seems if you're rich
And you're white
You think youre so right
I just don't see why this should be so
If you're rich and you're white
You think youre so right
I just don't see why this should be so

In Mexico
I lay on the grass
And I cried my heart out
For want of my love
Oh, for want of my love
Oh, for want of my love

It seems if you're rich
And you're white
You think you're so right
I just don't see why
This should be so

If you're rich and you're white
You think youre so right
I just don't see why
This should be so

In Mexico,
I lay on the grass
And I cried my heart out
For want of my love
For want of my love
For want of my love
For want of my love

Song review with a taste of truth | Reviewer: Jaime | 10/9/12

Good song with insightful lyrics that just touch the surface of the Indigenous people of Mexico vs the European people of Mexico. I do find it interesting when people think of Mexicans they think of Indian looking people but when they think of people from United States they think of "white" European looking people. Just goes to show you the power of media and art on how it shapes the mind set of the world.

Why not? | Reviewer: Andrea | 12/3/11

Of course there's a patriotic spirit here in Mexico, and why the fuck different races should be OPPOSITES?? Yeah, well, there's a power abuse, not only here but in all the countries of the world. The smaller race (north americans) trying to control everyone else...

"La perspectiva entre mas arriba no es cordial
es acaso un gran estado total
con dos razas viviendo en paz
la mas pequeña oprimiendonos a los demás"- "Ave", Café Tacvba

It's Truth | Reviewer: Elias Gusman | 4/28/07

Mexico is nothing but another "station" or "ambassy" of the world, there's not such thing as a patriotic spirit but a flood of people from OPPOSIT races thinking they are the soul of this country while the ones in power (Riches and Whites) they stand for the profile of the perfect world.There's so much Hypocresy and as someone said "Life's a Pigsty"
