Lyrics for "Uno, Dos, Tres"

There’s a little cantina not far from my home
Where all the Mexican people go
I walked in early and I pulled up a chair
I smiled at the girl with long black hair

I said hola que’ tal, Señorita
Yo quiero una margarita
She looked at me and English she sighed
You Gringos order Margaritas all the time
You Gringos order margaritas all the time

Then hold my order, young Señorita
I’ll drink something else to please ya’
I looked up at the bar to see what she got
I said how about a couple of Tequila shots
How about a couple of Tequila shots

Well first she started counting in English for me
Yeah, the first few shots she said, “one, two, three”
But then started counting in Spanish instead
And the Tequila started going right to my head
The Tequila started going right to my head

Uno, dos, tres
Quatro, cinco, seis
Siete, ocho, nueve, diez
You know I’ll drink whatever Señorita says
You know I’ll drink whatever Señorita says

Well I drifted off into a turquoise haze
With no recollection of the next few days
When I woke up I’z in the back of a van
A hundred miles south of the Rio Grande
A hundred miles south of the Rio Grande

And when they opened up the door
In the back of the Van
I was greeted by a preacher man
I said, “Hola, Padre, que pasa a’ noche”
He said, “You’re gonna marry Señorita tonight”
He said, “You’re gonna love her for the rest of your life”

And she showed me the six gun strapped to his side
Yes, I’m gonna marry Señorita tonight
Yes, I’m gonna love her for the rest of my life
