DUMB LYRICS: THE HOLLIES

Mexico Gold

By The Hollies (1973)

Thought I'd take a trip down to the Old World
'Cause I heard a lot of things about the North American girls
I was lookin' for a lady
Someone to have my baby

So I got me on a 747 Pan American plane
I sat me down next to your all-American dame
Said I'm going up North, she said it's a pity
Then she told me all about the gold down in Mexico City

Oh, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flyin'
And every mornin' and every night to get you out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
When you're livin' down south and it's goin' right out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Got off the plane, went to the customs and they gave me a list
"Do you carry a gun, take drugs, or are you Communist?"
They said my papers were in order
I wasn't stayin' long, no sir, I'm goin' South across the border

Oh, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flyin'
And every mornin' and every night to get you out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
When you're livin' down south and it's goin' right out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Took the first southbound, across the Rio and down
Found a little place in the small Mexico town
Just me and my lady
Now she's havin' my baby

Oh, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flyin'
And every mornin' and every night to get you out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
When you're livin' down south and it's goin' right out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Oh, she said Lordy, Lordy, watch the blue smoke flyin'
And every mornin' and every night to get you out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy

Oh, man oh, Lordy, Lordy needs a natural high
When you're livin' down south and it's goin' right out of your head

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy


Born a Man

By The Hollies

Some kids grow up with lots of toys
Some grow up knowing other boys
And I was born in the land of the free
But these things never happened to me

'Cos I was born a man
Don't remember being a child
I was born a man
Don't remember running wild

As soon as I was old enough to get my pay
I was working sixteen hours out of every day

Some kids grow up with a mothers love
And some with even more
But me I just turned up one day
On someone else's door

'Cos I was born a man
Don't remember being a child
I was born a man
Don't remember running wild

As soon as I was old enough to get my pay
I was working sixteen hours out of every day

But I won't cry
No I won't bore you
It has been good but it could have been better

Life's like a woman
Go out and take her
She'll treat you good if you are good back to her

I was born a man
Don't remember being a child
I was born a man
Don't remember running wild

As soon as I was old enough to get my pay
I was working sixteen hours out of every day




Indian Girl

By The Hollies

I see the snowflakes fallin'
I hear the drumbeat callin'
I am just only lonely
Indian girl

Braver than all the braves now
I sit at every pow-wow
I fought a million men for
Indian girl

Ten hides and twenty horses
It's what the tribal law says
Too much for me to pay for
Indian girl

Oh, sun shine on, sun shine on
And take my darkness away
Oh, sun shine on, sun shine on
And bring this girl my way

Far from her lonely teepee
Wind sends her sweetness to me
Too much for me to bear, my
Indian girl

Gather your things together
And bring your wedding feather
We'll steal away forever
Indian girl

Oh, sun shine, on sun shine on
The path that leads away
Oh, sun shine on, sun shine on
This our brightest day
