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's found,
Well I'd pop a cap in sancho and I'd slap her down.

What I really wanna know,
My baby,
What I really want to say I can't define,
Well it's love that I need, oh,
But my soul will have to,
Wait till I get back find heina of my own,
Daddy's gonna love one and all.

I feel the break,
Feel the break,
Feel the break and I got live it out,
Oh, yea huh, well I swear that I,
What I really wanna know,
My baby,
What I really want to say I can't define,
Got love make it go,
My soul will have to...

Ohhh, 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 comin' up.

Tell Sanchito that if he knows what is good for him he best go run and hide,
Daddy's got a new .45,
And I won't think twice to stick that barrel straight down sancho's throat,
Believe me when I say that I got somethin' 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, yea,
But my soul will have to wait.

Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Santeria is a religion based on Catholicism and African religious beliefs. Makes for quite an...interesting combination. I've known a few people who practiced it. According to Wikipedia, Lukumi is another name for Santeria.

    Actually Bradley's dead and has been so since before this song became famous sans their album of the Same name (Sublime). Which makes this song all the more so haunting especially if you listen to the lyrics. In particular the portion dealing with his spirit.

    I think he was saying he lives in the moment with no real foresight or little to no religious guidance.

    As for Sancho and "heina", my parents are from Puerto Rico and I've NEVER heard those words before this song.

    Just an extra note - "Sancho" in Spanish speaking countries, or at least in Mexico for sure, is equivalent to "the milk man" here. It's the guy who is with your wife when you're not home. It's an insult to be called that.
