It was 1999, new year's eve in Acapulco, she had december in her eyes,
and bruises on her knees, and wet dreams between her thighs,
she said that I was absolutely competent
although I was no member of the parliament, the parliament

I think her name was marguerita, she was six dollars for a night,
she had a friend called loretta, she would come out with cold beer,
it was a fine evening, the sky was carnedine,
they said we were absolutely competent
although we were no member of the parliament, the parliament

11:55, loretta closed the bar, we would go down to the beach,
we had to wait for marguerita, she had a stone in her shoe,
she said we were absolutely competent
although we were no member of the parliament, the parliament

Fireworks in the dark night, fireworks in our minds,
we were smoking m, we had a fine time,
laying low in the sand, it was so 69, the waves approaching us,
do you remember 79? do you remember 89? do you remember 99?
