"El Paso Song" as written by and Malcolm Middleton Aidan Moffat....
a ? glance
lets me know you know I'm leaving
I've watched you sway and dance
for the best part of the evening
you skipped past once or twice
so close I heard you humming
and ? my favorite ?
well darling just you keep it coming

most of my heart has been cleared
and what's left is mostly maimed
but the tiny part that feels alright
fell in love with you tonight

I'm sure I was looking cool
and i'm sure you would've thought that too had I
not ? out like a fool
when you were giving me the glad eye
I had planned to ask your name
and say my final cheery ho ho
but all i could proclaim
was donde esta el ?

my heart's been conquered and tamed
frozen and roasted and framed
and if it can be where it should be
just let me know then where it could be

but that cheeky sideways glance you threw
is probably just what you'd do
when you are so relieved to see
the back of a past lech like me

    Lyric CorrectionA half-smile under glance
    lets me know you know I'm leaving
    I watched you the way you dance
    for the best part of the evening
    You skipped past once or twice
    So close i heard you humming
    And like my favorite vice, well, darlin' just you keep it comin'

    Most of my heart has been cleaned
    and what's left is mostly mend
    but the tiny part that feels all right
    fell in love with you tonight

    I'm sure i was looking cool
    and i'm sure you'd thought too
    had i not splattered like a fool
    when you were giving me the glad eye
    I planned to ask your name
    and say my final cheerio
    but all i could proclaim was ¿dónde está el servicio?

    My heart's been conquered, and tamed,
    frozen and roasted and framed
    And if it can't be where it should be
    just let me know that where it could be

    But that cheeky sideways glance you threw
    that's probably just what you do
    when you're so relieved to see the back of a ?????? me.
