Happy Birthday Guadalupe

Album: Single Release Only (2009)
  • Ouch
    Well I wake up Christmas morning and what did I see?
    I saw a lovely signorita looking back at me
    Named Guadelupe, with big brown eyes
    Boy what did you do this time?

    Made my excuses and a beeline for the bedroom door
    She was beggin'and a-pleadin', screamin'
    "Por favor, mi cumpleanos, stay with me,
    Baby it's cold outside

    We are livin'in a difficult time
    We've been walkin'down a difficult line
    Put you're feet up baby, it's Christmas time
    Cumpleanos feliz
    Happy birthday Guadelupe

    (Our time will come)
    (We both hold on)

    She gave me coffee and tortillas to console my head
    Prepared the slippers on my feet before she made our bed
    And blew the candles from her favourite cake
    And we kissed beneath the mistletoe

    I pulled her body close to mine and I had just one chance
    I wishpered "Baby will you marry me for just one dance?"
    Infatuation, the things you say
    I got scared and I left that night

    'Cause we are livin' in a difficult time
    We've been walkin' down a difficult line
    Put your feet up baby, it's Christmas time
    Cumpleanos feliz
    Happy birthday Guadelupe

    Deck the halls with rosaries
    Wish upon a Christmas tree
    Silent night please come to me
    Bearing gifts from my...my Mexican angel

    At night I wake up cold and lonely, bustin'at the seams
    She haunts the early morning hours of December dreams
    My Guadelupe, with big brown eyes
    I wanna break the spell tonight

    'Cause we are livin'in a difficult time
    We've been walkin' down a difficult time
    Put your feet up baby, it's Christmas time
    Cumpleanos feliz
    Happy birthday Guadelupe

    Happy birthday Guadelupe
