Call of the West album at
Wall Of Voodoo's, "Mexican Radio"
The Lyrics:
I dial it in and tune the station They talk about the U.S. inflation I understand just a little No comprendo, it's a riddle
I'm on a Mexican radio I'm on a Mexican radio
I wish I was in Tiajuana Eating barbequed iguana
The L.A. New Wave band, Wall Of Voodoo's "Mexican Radio" was a minor national hit (reaching into the Top 50 on Billboard Magazine's HOT 100 charts) in 1983. Listed above is the second verse, the second chorus and the first two lines of the third verse. In this section we have shoutouts to the U.S. which is the United States, Mexico (through Mexican, which is also in the title) and the Mexican city of Tiajuana, where the lead singer wanted to eat barbequed iguana.
