Oh tequila, I turn to you like a long lost friend
I want to kiss my Mexican cousin once again
We'll cover every emotion from happiness to sorrow
And the conversations I forget you'll tell me about tomorrow
When the phone calls start, am I in bed or in a hearse?
The things you tell me about myself can't make me feel any worse
Well I'm awful sorry you got pissed
Just have to cross you off the list
of my true friends...
And tequila's where that starts and where it ends

    General Commentthis song confuses me...

    it seems as if the lyrics are purposely tangled and non-coherent as if to convey a night with tequila!

    cause at first it's "my" mexican cousin, then, ultimately, it ends up being "your" mexican cousin....

    example 1: the conversations "i forget" (past tense) "tell me about tomorrow" (future), wtf?

    example 2: "the things you tell me about myself can make me feel any worse" that sentence is sooo twisted, so much so that it almost would only make sense *after* (or in) a night of tequila...

    then it goes on to, what i assume is, people getting pissed cause "i" (he/the narrator) made out with "my" mexican cousin; "well im awful sorry you got pissed"

    but then ends with, "i wanna kiss *your* mexican cousin again"

    as f*cked up and illogical as the lyrics are and seem, they are and seem absolutely perfectly f*cked up (for a song that is drowned in a night of tequila)!
