Fountains Of Wayne – Mexican Wine lyrics

He was killed by a cellular phone explosion
They scattered his ashes across the ocean
The water was used to make baby lotion
The wheels of promotion were set into motion

[Chorus:]
But the sun still shines in the summer time
I'll be yours if you'll be mine
I tried to change but I changed my mind
Think I'll have another glass of mexican wine

She lived alone in a small apartment
Across the street from the health department
She left her pills in the glove compartment
That was the afternoon her heart went

[Chorus:]
And the sun still shines in the summer time
I'll be yours if you'll be mine
I tried to change but I changed my mind
Think I'll have another glass of mexican wine
Think I'll have another glass of mexican wine

I used to fly for United Airlines
Then I got fired for reading high times
License expired in almost no time
Now I'm retired and I think that's fine

[Chorus:]
Because the sun still shines in the summer time
I'll be yours if you'll be mine
I tried to change but I changed my mind
Think I'll have another glass of mexican wine
(repeat 2x)

Think I'll have another glass of mexican wine
Won't you have another glass of mexican wine

    I think this song is about crazy things are going to happen around you, to you, and to your friends, but you shouldn't take life too seriously and "have another glass of mexican wine". I think that the first stanza is about how weird things, like your friend dying or how people will mistreat others in situations, represented by the 1st and 3rd lines. Theme statement: through literary devices such as alliteration (consonance), repetition, paradox, apostrophe, symbolism, and feminine rhyme scheme (mostly), fountains of wayne reveal that crazy events may occur, but you need to stay positive not worry, because the sun will come up tomorrow (i promise :)).

    I got this song off a disc from my cuzz, it didn't have any names on it, some songs I recognized as soon as I heard em, but this is one of the ones I didn't know, I just called kit Mexican Wine because its the only part that really caught my attention, and so I try it out about 2 years l8r, and it comes up with fountains of wayne, I almost piss myself laughing cause I thought of the name outta nowhere.
