Voy a pedir su mano
Al amor hay que dar de beber
Voy a cortar un ramo de nubes
Para mojar su querer

Voy-voy-voy-voy-voy
Voy a bajar por los yayales
En una yagua de tul
Voy a pintar los manantiales
Con óleos de cielo azul

Voy a prender tu cariñito
Como cocuyo en el mar
Y voy a hacerte un traje e novia
Con hojas del platanal

Ye-ye

Viene a pedir mi mano, viene
Vamos a sonar unos palos
Pa' que me quiera por siempre
Que su amor sea verdadero, oh-oy
Pa' que me quiera, ay
Viene a pedir mi mano, viene
Vamos a sonar unos palos
Pa' que me quiera por siempre
Pa' yo prender mi lucero
Pa' que me quiera, ay
Viene a pedir mi mano, viene

Y cuando tenga tu permiso
Voy a volar norte a sur
Para buscar arriba del pino
El nido que quieras tú

Ye-ye

Voy a prender tu cariñito
Como cocuyo en el mar
Y voy a hacerte un traje 'e novia
Con hojas del platanal, ey

Y acariciarte en la mañana
Y arroparte con el sol
Y desvestir a los guandules
Pa' alimentar el amor

Bororoi, boy, bororororoy

Viene a pedir mi mano, viene
Vamos a sonar unos palos
Pa' que me quiera por siempre
Que su amor sea verdadero, oh-oy
Pa' que me quiera, ay
Viene a pedir mi mano, viene
Vamos a sonar unos palos
Pa' que me quiera por siempre
Pa'yo prender mi lucero
Pa' que me quiera, ay
Viene a pedir mi mano, viene

O-oye

Viene a pedir mi mano, viene
Vamos a sonar unos palos
Pa' que me quiera por siempre
Que su amor sea verdadero, oy
Pa' que me quiera, ay
Viene a pedir mi mano, viene
Vamos a sonar unos palos
Pa' que me quiera por siempre
Pa'yo prender mi lucero, bororoi
Pa' que me quiera, ay
Viene a pedir mi mano, viene

O-oye

Acumbaya moren
Acumbaya malana
Acumbaya sekun
Acumbaya tanana
I-yo, acumbaya moren
Acumbaya malana
I-yo, acumbaya sekun
Acumbaya tanana
I-yo, acumbaya moren (viene pedir mi mano, viene)
Acumbaya malana
I-yo, acumbaya sekun
Acumbaya tanana
Acumbaya

Acumbaya moren
Acumbaya malana
Acumbaya sekun
Acumbaya tanana
I-yo, acumbaya moren
Acumbaya malana
I-yo, acumbaya sekun
Acumbaya tanana
I-yo, acumbaya moren (viene pedir mi mano, viene)
Acumbaya malana
I-yo, acumbaya sekun
Acumbaya tanana
I-yo, acumbaya moren
Acumbaya malana
I-yo, acumbaya sekun
Acumbaya tanana
I-yo, acumbaya moren
Acumbaya malana
I-yo, acumbaya sekun

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
