Dios Mio

 

Dios Mio

Dos cervezas, please.

Dios Mio.

Life can bring you to your knees.

Dios Mio

Survived another day,

but dios mio,

Dios Mio!

 

Buy me a drink, Amigo.

For I like the curve of your smile.

Pull up a bar stool beside me.

I’ll tell you my tale for a while.

 

Dios Mio

Dos cervezas, please.

Dios Mio

Life can bring you to your knees.

Dios Mio

Survived another day,

but dios mio.

Dios Mio!

 

Back when I was a young hombre,

thought I’d conquer the globe.

But the world’s played its jokes upon me,

some money I’ve blown.

If I’d a dime for every beer bought a friend,
I could fill a canyon with dimes.

But a life of fun and drunken mistakes,

Doesn’t seem too much of a crime.

 

Dios Mio…

Asleep, my senorita looked an angel.

Awake, a demon in white.

Gotta’ hold of my credit card digits,

bought up everything in her sight.

This maiden grew tired of bleeding me.

Errant things were left behind.

A mountain of clothing and her feral cat…

And a boy with my last name, but the mailman’s eyes.

 

Oh, Dios Mio…

 

Had a business partner,

grew pharmaceutical pot

Business, she would have been booming,

if he didn’t smoke 40% off the top.

He left me a bit bamboozled.

Guess I got a problem with faith.

Cause I believed in him, while his own intent,

was to steal everything, and lie to my face.

Oh, Dios Mio…

 

The moral is ‘nothing’ really matters,

if you hold nothing in hand.

And it is the kindness from strangers,

that fulfills you as woman or man.

 

Dios Mio

Dos cervezas, please.

Dios Mio

Life can bring you to your knees.

Dios Mio

Survived another day,

but dios mio.

Dios Mio!
