Lyrics:

Woke up, forgot where I was, and I still have a buzz. Look to my left, who the hell is this? Was there something that I missed? Look to my right, what I sight! What the hell did I do last night? The whole is full of bottles, and those two could be models. My head is pounding and my throat is dry, I can barely open my eyes. Where did this tattoo come from? Roses flanked by two smoking guns.

(Chorus)
Here I am in a Mexican hotel, and things seem to be going so well. My head is pounding in a Mexican hotel, can't remember much, but oh well. Drinking tequila in a Mexican hotel, in an hour I'll be under Jose's spell. Wasting my life in a Mexican hotel, seems like fun, but it's a living hell.

Got here about eight months ago, and life sometimes goes so slow. I ran from the San Fernando valley, fast living almost damn near had me. Down here they dont care what I do, as long as Federali gets a dollar or two. Mexicali seems to be the place for me, only 'cause it has to be. It's OK, I'm still having fun, getting drunk and living on the run.

(Chorus)
