Burroughs In Mexico Lyrics

Burroughs in Mexico

Benzedrine Joan set the champagne glass right on top of her head
she never flinched
you were William Tell
the siesta shooter shot her dead
although I know how the story goes I wish she wouldn't have stood on her toes

Burroughs in Mexico playing pin the tail on the wife
Burroughs in Mexico playing parlor games with life

Dumb enough to give the cops a paste up excuse you had to run down the Tangier
houseboy's hashish and heroin to boot
the queer old coot never shed a tear
so watch out boys he's on the loose
he'll goose you when you get his goose

Burroughs in Mexico playing pin the tail on the wife
Burroughs in Mexico playing parlor games with life

Deadlier than John Wayne in a dress
take a walk on the wild side out west
the bloody hole was Joan's face
what a mess
temporary subconciousness I guess

Read a story about your dad the big businessman
a maker of adding machines now it all adds up
he financed the time that let you act out Joan's final scene
but has Bill cashed in his surprise by shooting his wife between the eyes?

Burroughs in Mexico playing pin the tail on the wife
Burroughs in Mexico playing parlor games with life

Burroughs in Mexico playing pin the tail on the wife
Burroughs in Mexico playing parlor games with life
