Frank Black – Brackish Boy lyrics

This man he was a mexican
Oh yeah
Adopted into norwegian
Oh yeah
Turned into american
Oh yeah
But he felt a mexican
Oh yeah
He was a walking fish
Oh yeah
Down mexico way
He had to learn spanish
Oh yeah
He was a walking fish
Oh yeah
He was feeling so brackish
Between norwegian and english
He decided it was time to go
To find the people that he did not know
But the road to mexico
Oh yeah
They sure go fast but they should go slow
Oh yeah
Its a dangerous road
By now you know that he was fucked
By now you know he had no luck
He was smashed head on by a giant truck
Down mexico way
