lyrics

Oh, Mexico
All the time
Dreaming all about Acapulco
And a sweet thing on my mind

Mogadishu sunrise
Low above the sea
All of them lawyers in California
Won’t bring her back to me
Back to me
Back to me

Oh, mercenary girl
Of all the lowdown places in the world
To be stuck inside of a phone booth
Hanging on the end of a line
While this civil war is raging in my mind

Oh, Mary Mary
I think you’re fine
She can mix a margarita
From a bottle of turpentine

Just between noon and midnight
That’s when the battle rages on
Baby, I just gotta make one more call
And I’ll be here with you all night long
All night long
All night long

Oh, mercenary girl
Of all the lowdown places in the world
To be living in another city
Coming from another time
I know it’s a cold, cruel world
But your eyes look soft and kind
And this civil war keeps raging in my mind

Oh, mercenary girl
Oh, mercenary girl
Oh, mercenary girl
Oh, mercenary girl
