Lyrics

Well I owe four months rent, and I owe the IRS
And the phone bill's still unpaid
I guess in debt's my middle name
And I've been working', workin', workin'
Accumulating someone else's wealth
I've been workin', workin', workin'
For everyone but myself
Well sometimes it feels like I could
Sometimes it feels like I should

Move to Mexico and change my name
Move to Mexico and change my name
No longer Jim, no I'll be José
When I move to Mexico and change my name

And they will never find me, no
And they'll know where they all can go
There'll be no cash upon demand
I'll be below the Rio Grande
Now at night I lie awake to the ticking of the clock
And I think what it will take just to get what I ain't got
And it seems there's no escaping
I'm the prisoner in the pot
And the monster's mouth is gaping
And his breath is getting hot
So as I'm staring down his mouth
My best direction's south

So I’ll move to Mexico and change my name
Move to Mexico and change my name
No longer Jim, no I'll be José
When I move to Mexico and change my name

Con una corona, yo voy a ser rey de lo que veré
Por favor señorita traîgame mas cerveza

They say my credit's not too well
Pronounce it dead and go to hell
I'll be on Acapulco Bay
The señoritas all well say
He's a stranger from the north, no ID, no date of birth
Plays guitar and sings us songs
And some nights we sing along
And he says he comes from Texas
And he says he comes from Spain
And every night he has a good time
And a different name
Oh I'll be liberated when I'm expatriated

When I move to Mexico and change my name
Move to Mexico and change my name
No longer Jim, no I'll be José
When I move to Mexico and change my name
