Hola, hola Mexico
Como esta... (uh)

Where are we?
How did we get here?
How'd you get here?
I went looking
So much to see
I went looking

I went looking for spirit
Found alchohol
I went looking for soul
And I bought some style
I wanted to meet God
But you sold me religion

She feels the ground is giving way
But she thinks we're better off that way
The more you take the less you feel
The more you know the less you believe
The more you have the more it takes today

You gotta give it away / You gotta give it away
Gotta give it away / You gotta give it away
Gotta to give it away / You gotta give it away

She knows just what she's worth
She's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth

She's not waiting on a saviour to come
She's at the bus-stop with the
News of the World and the Sun
Sun, here it comes
She's not waiting for anyone

You gotta give it away / You gotta give it away
Gotta give it away / You gotta give it away
Gotta to give it away / You gotta give it away

She knows just what she's worth
She's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth

Oh, oh my child
Alright child
It's not the last night on earth
It's Pop-life in Mexico
It's not the last night on earth
Darling don't you let me go
Mexico, Mexico, Mexico City
How did you get so high?
It's not the last night on earth
Darling stay with me tonight
'Cause the world turns
And we get dizzy
  Sometimes we're slipping away

We've been living, living next week now
You know we're going to pay it back somehow
We haven't been to bed in a week
We'll be dead soon, we still won't sleep

You gotta give it away / You gotta give it away
You gotta give it away / You gotta give it away
You gotta to give it away / You gotta give it away

Come on, she knows that it hurts
Lliving like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth
The last night on earth
