more from the dada folk archives

bandcamp

You can find all my albums @ http://ajkaufmann.bandcamp.com. More audio notebooks will be added later on, even if Dada Folk is now a finished project. There are still some unheard demos in the archives though. I hope you enjoy free music on this blog, and will buy an album or two @ bandcamp.

Mexico Song

Mexico Song

Mexico, Mexico, beauty untold
Mexico, Mexico, time took no toll
Mexico, Mexico, soil out of place
Mexico, Mexico, blood leaves no trace

Took a trip to a place that’s best
To a place where the other side’s
Just a mural in sunlight’s glare
At the feast, Cuauhtémoc alive
Then so swiftly to Xibalba
Treasured islands there must wait
When the garden gates are closed
Please don't fail to hesitate

Mexico, Mexico…

Take the southern carretera
Hold the mountains in your palm
Take a trip that's really best
Wrap the canyons in your arms
Sliding through her silent waters
Mission’s ruins, ragged cliffs
Singing to the night sky only
While the train rolls on for years

Mexico, Mexico…

Having wine here in Oaxaca
With all butterflies in reach
And Musica Mexicana
Sweet sangria to my ears
Then through Sierra Madre mountains
Through some sketches sweet of Spain
Into tidal waves of knowing
Up to Pancho Villa's grave

Mexico, Mexico…

Greet the sun in Monte Alban
For a different point of view
See the feathers green and whistling
As the sun comes breaking through
And we dance like vigilantes
Moving on towards the dawn
All is sacred in this plain
All is love and all is home

Mexico, Mexico…

Dance on fires of your leaving
Find the reptiles' resting place
In Chiapas we'll be drinking
We'll be fucking in El Rey
With your beads that fall like flowers
With your hair that falls like wine
There’s no other to devour
There’s no other to confide

Mexico, Mexico…

Have peyote at the ghost town
Count the bones of pilgrim wives
Meet the spirits of the miners
Dance until we're done with knives
Paint ourselves above the temple
Paint ourselves above the moon
Catch the bus in Tikal’s mists
Hear the devils as they croon

Mexico, Mexico…

Give this moon another reason
Give this ride another chance
Greet the sun at Monte Alban
Face another circumstance
Soon the dancing days be over
Soon Oaxaca gently sighs
Then it's time for us to go
Then it's time to say goodbye

Mexico, Mexico…

Where experience’s all that matters
There’s no way to lose a life
With this sun above the rooftops
You in green and me in white
To begin it once again
Let your beauty be renowned
Legendary in her features
Known to all but slave to none

Legendary in her features
Known to all but slave to none
Legendary in her features
Known to all but slave to none...
