Santeria Lyrics

I don't practice Santeria
I ain't got no crystal ball
Well I had a million dollars but I
I'd spend it all

If I could find that heina
And that Sancho that she'd found
Well I'd pop a cap in Sancho
And I'd slap her down

What I really wanna know, my baby
Oh, what I really wanna say, I can't define
Well it's love that I need, oh

My soul will have to wait till I get back
Find a heina of my own
Daddy's gonna love one an' all
I feel the break, feel the break, feel the break
And I gotta live it out, oh yeah
Well I swear that I

What I really wanna know, my baby
What I really wanna say, I can't define
Got love, make it go, oh
My soul will have to

Oh, what I really wanna say, my baby
What I really wanna say, is I've got mine
And I'll make it
Yes, I'm goin' up

Tell Sanchito that if he knows
What is good for him
He best go run an' hide
Daddy's got a new forty-five

And I won't think twice to stick that barrel
Straight down Sancho's throat
Believe me when I say that
I got something for his punk ass

What I really wanna know, my baby
Oh, what I really wanna say
Is there's just one way back?
And I'll make it, yaa
My soul will have to wait

It's about a girlfriend who cheats. Heina is slang for girl, such as in this case, girlfriend. I spent 4 years walking footbeat in the projects and Varrios of East L.A. These are very common terms.

Like Bradley said, it is definitely HEINA. I read it is a Mexican word for girlfriend. Just like SANCHO: man who steals someone's girl. @Boboo Sadly, phonetics and grammar are not the issues here
Boboo 03/07/12,03:42

Okay everyone first grade phonics and second grade grammar.... The two vowels following the N make the first vowel E pronounced with a short vowel sound like A apple. So it is Hannah!

You all are wrong. Sublime is a band that improves their music, meaning they have no main genre, they just play what they feel. By the way Rome sucks.

@spectral, ur just mad that sublime made a great song. And I know why ur radio station played it, to show mindless people like u some good music ;) UMAD! Btw sublime is punk that choses to do reggae.
