The legend of a man who got more than he bargained for.

lyrics

So sit right back and let me tell you a tale about a great big man from the south of Mexico. Well he looks real tough and he looks real mean. He's six foot ten or so the story goes. Well there isn't a man neither alive or dead that'd dare to try to pick a fight with him. And if you even tried to look him in the eye he'd just stare right back at you with that shit eating grin. Well he’d turn to you and he’d say. I’m the man from the south of Mexico. I’m the man that broke the walls of Jericho. I’m the man that's ready to go. Give me more more more more more more more more more. Nearly every single night at about half past ten he walks right up and orders himself a gin. Well he doesn't say much and he drinks a lot. He just sits there deep in thought. And at about this time a few nights ago I spoke to the man from the south of Mexico. Well I sat at the bar and I bought him a gin and I said 'hey man what's the story behind that grin?' Well he turned to me and he said. About three thousand years ago I met a old man in a little row boat. He was from past to moon and beyond the stars. Smelled of cheap cologne and cheap cigars. He said ‘How'd you like to live forever? Be big, and mean, and strong, and clever? All you gotta do is sign your name on the line.’ Now I'm stuck drinking gin 'til the end of time. And that's the story behind the man who lives way down in the south of Mexico. Now he travels the land far and wide looking for that man in the little row boat. Well don't you dare get in his way 'cause trying to kill him will only make his day. Ain't nothing gonna break the spell he's in so every night he steps in the bar and drinks gin. And all he'll ever say is...
