"Banditos" as written by and Brian David/clyne Blush....
So just how far down do you wanna go
We could talk it out over a cup of Joe
And you can look deep in my eyes
Like I was a super-model

Uh huh
Well, it's just you and me baby
No one else we can trust
We'll say nothin' to no one

No how or we'll bust
Never crack a smile or flinch or cry
For nobody
Uh huh

So give you ID card to the border guard
Your alias says you Captain John Luke Picard
Of the United Federation of Planets
'Cause they won't speak English any ways

Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people
So meet me at the mission at midnight
We'll divy up there
Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people

So I got the pistol
So I get the Pesos
Yeah that seems fair
We'll put the sugar in the tank of the sheriff's car

We'll slash the deputy's tires
They won't get very far
When they finally get the word that there's been a hold-up
Uh huh

Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people
So meet me at the mission at midnight
We'll divy up there
Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people

But I got the pistol
So I get the Pesos
Yeah that seems fair
That seems fair
That seems fair
That seems fair yeah yeah

So give you ID card to the border guard
Now alias says you Captain John Luke Picard
Of the United Federation of Planets
'Cause they won't speak English any ways

Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people
So meet me at the mission at midnight
We'll divy up there
But everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people

Well, I got the pistol
So I get the Pesos
Yeah that seems fair
That seems fair
And that seems fair
That seems fair

    General Comment"Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people"

    hehe, not the full message of the song, but that line is classic and the song has a permanent spot on my playlist.

    General Commenti used to listen to this song all the time, some of the words stuck in my head, it's a pretty fun song, no real "behind the music" type meaning though.

    General CommentI think this tune's somewhat ironic...the banditos say the world's fun of stupid people, but at the same time they're screwing with life and law enforcement. Who's stupid now? Great song, by the way.

    General CommentDid anyone else think that the singer betrays his partner? "I've got the pistols, so I'll keep the pesos." He could be talking to the cashier or whatever, but somehow I always thought he turned on the other person.

    General CommentTheSilverNoble, I used to think the same thing. Funny line though. Dont mess with a man with guns.

    General CommentMmm

    definitely screwing over his partner...

    Kind of ironic, like he's saying that the world is full of stupid people, but he's setting up his partner to get caught, ie the obvious fake alias and the "meeting" where i don't think that they will really meet...

    and the guns and all...

    great song, btw. love the guys...
