The Lyrics

hey juan..oh, i hate your know
hey juan...unfriendly manners been shown...i wanna
hey juan...i wanna flee to the states
these mexican cops say i ain't goin' no place

hey juan...the traffic's insane
hey juan...i nearly was slain
hey car was totalled...bam ! ...bam !
i had too much tequila...and gee....they nailed me

i got thrown in the can
i was manacled and naked
i'm stuck in mexico city
i don't own no sedan
cause i got to high and wrecked it
i'm stuck in mexico city
a sorry plight...i feel fright

hey juan...these latin cops are unkind..go away !
hey juan...i can't stand doin' way !
hey juan...had a car crash here
this little room's no fun...wanna run...wanna run

i got thrown in the can
back at home, i'd get a ticket
i'm stuck in mexico city
its a strange foreign land
and you know they don't play cricket
i'm stuck in mexico city
it really ain't right

in mexico city....yeah...mexico city
i'm stuck in mexico city...i'm stuck in mexico city
ewww...mexico city...eww...mexico city
oh wow...mexico city...oh wow....mexico city

ohhhhhhhh...wham bam...traffic jam !

in mexico city....yeah...mexico city
i've no rights
in mexico city
in mexico city...oh, in mexico city
oh, its mexico city...oh, its mexico city
oh, mexico........
mexico !
