From the recording Where The Amber Water Flows
Well, we had a big fight; she ran off into the night
I drove around, but she could not be found
Then by some accident, when I was emotionally spent
I discovered a place called the “Merry-Go-Round”
What the hell, I went in; I made a lot of friends
We were havin’ a great time suckin’ on limes
Now I know why they call it the “Merry-Go-Round”
Everything spinnin,’ nobody wearin’ a frown
Somebody even made up a little rhyme about it, and it goes like this...
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor
My God, I can’t stand no more
I think I have been here before
Good thing I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila floor
From down on the floor, I could see the front door
And unless it was her twin, guess who came in?
Now I don’t think she was exactly lookin’ for me
So I looked on from afar as she proceeded to the bar
Before I could say “worm in a bottle,” she was goin’ full throttle
And real soon she caught up with me...
Lookin’ right at her, everything still in a blur
I said over the roar: “Have we met somewhere before?”
She did not reply; she just looked me straight in the eye
And said: “I sure hope you find what you’re lookin’ for”
Repeat CHORUS (except last line)
One tequina, two malina, three kachina floor
Yeah, one garita, two lalita, three balita floor
