Spanish Boy

(St. Holmes/Whitford)

  uno dos tres quatro

  ooh keep your head down

NOW I'M GONNA TELL YOU A STORY
AIN'T GONNA TELL NO LIES
TELL YOU ABOUT A LITTLE SPANISH BOY
AND THE STORY OF HIS LIFE

HE WAS JUST A MERE SEVENTEEN
WHEN HIS WHOLE WORLD BLEW APART
HIDDEN IN THE COUNTRY OF A SPANISH CROWN
THIS WAS ONLY JUST THE START

HIS DADDY WAS A GANGSTER
HIS MAMA WAS A WHORE
HE LIVED ON THE COAST IN A SPANISH TOWN
IN SOUTHERN EL SALVADOR

HE WAS HAPPY AS A STOCK BOY
KEEPIN' BUSY ALL DAY THROUGH
NEVER LISTENED TO THE OTHER BOYS' TALK
IT WAS STRICTLY AGAINST THE RULES

OH YEAH HE WAS A PASSIVE BOY

BUT ONE DAY HE HEARD THEM TALKIN'
ABOUT SOME TROUBLE OUTSIDE A TOWN
TWO MEN WERE SHOT COLD DEAD IN THE STREET
TWO REBELS CAN'T BE FOUND

HE HEARS IT ON THE RADIO
SEES IT ON THE NEWS
HE SAT AROUND BEFORE TOO LONG
THERE'S SOMETHIN' HE'S GOTTA DO

HIS MAMA TOLD HIM ONE DAY
BOY YOU'RE GONNA BE A MAN
YOU BETTER MAKE SURE WHAT CROWD YOU'RE WITH
'CAUSE YOU GOTTA HAVE THE UPPER HAND

OH YEAH OH YEAH
YOU BETTER MAKE SURE WHAT CROWD YOU'RE WITH
'CAUSE YOU GOTTA HAVE THE UPPER HAND
  Shoot'em Whitford

IT WAS A HOT SEPTEMBER NIGHT
AND HE PACKED HIMSELF SOME CLOTHES
GRABBED A PAIR OF HIS DADDY'S BOOTS
AND HEADED QUIETLY OUT THE DOOR

HE LOOKED UP AT THE MOON SO BRIGHT
HIS HEART WAS FILLED WITH FEAR
HE'S WALKIN' THROUGH THE DARK OF THE NIGHT
WHERE A MAN SHEDS NO TEARS

OH YEAH OH YEAH
LOOKIN' AT THE STARS SO BRIGHT
HIS HEART FILLED WITH FEAR

OH YEAH OH YEAH
HE'S WALKING THROUGH THE DARK OF THE NIGHT
WHERE A MAN SHEDS NO TEARS

HE WAS JUST A SPANISH BOY

LISTEN
FOR NOW I'M GONNA TELL YOU A STORY
AIN'T GONNA TELL YOU NO LIES
I TOLD YOU 'BOUT THIS SPANISH BOY
AND THE STORY OF HIS LIFE

HIS DADDY WAS A GANGSTER
HIS MAMA WAS A WHORE
HE HAD NO CHOICE
BUT TO JOIN THE FIGHT
THE REBELS OF SALVADOR

HE WAS A SPANISH BOY
  Livin' fast
A SPANISH BOY
  A life so hard
HE WAS A SPANISH BOY
  God gave the order
A SPANISH BOY
JUST A SPANISH BOY
  Ooh workin' too hard stock boy
