Man, it was mean to be seen in the robes you wore for Lent
you must've known that it was Easter
There for a while, in your smile, I could see Mexico blood say
"This is true I was a Teaser"
There were a thousand Manitas, being exchanged for Pesetas

Man! It was hard not to laugh out loud
I couldn't believe the size of the crowd
You must have fooled them into coming
Wow! There were women and children, too
They would have hanged us if they knew
I think I know for certain

Inside you sniggered so hearty, you only came for the party

Man, it was mean, it was mean, Man, it was mean

Remember the time, what a time, we had down in Barcelona
after you'd been slaying babies
There, for a time, I was fooled by your disguises, but I
never thought of smashing rules
You wore the yellow bandana and gave out Heavenly Manna

Then in Amsterdam you were perfect fun
You never let on you had a gun
and then you shot that Spanish Dancer
The speed at which we ran for a mile or two,
they would have crucified us if they knew
I think I know for certain

Inside you sniggered so hearty, we only killed for the party

Man, it was mean, it was mean, Man, it was mean

Man, show me something I've never seen, you're only real in your
Dream Machine
And all your games are a little drastic
Just throw me out if I get obscene but that's the way that I've
always been
I think I know for certain

Inside you sniggered so hearty, we're only living a party

Man, it was mean, it was mean, Man, it was mean

We're having a party,
Ooh ooh, We're having a party.
