WAY DOWN IN MEXICO
O BOYS, we're goin' far to-night, Yeo-ho, yeo-ho! We'll take the greasers now in hand And drive 'em in the Rio Grande, Way down in Mexico.
We'll hang old Santa Anna soon,
Yeo-ho, yeo-ho!
And all the greaser soldiers, too,
To the chune of Yankee Doodle Doo*
Way down in Mexico.
We'll scatter 'em like flocks of sheep, Yeo-ho, yeo-ho!
We'll mow 'em down with rifle ball And plant our flag right on their wall, Way down in Mexico.
Old Rough and Ready, he's a trump, Yeo-ho, yeo-ho!
He'll wipe old Santa Anna out And put the greasers all to rout, Way down in Mexico.
Then we'll march back by and by, Yeo-ho, yeo-ho!
And kiss the gals we left to home And never more we'll go and roam, Way down in Mexico. 314
