The Calavera Oaxaquena

CLICK FOR ACCESSThe valiant calavera
Has just arrived today.
Take off your hat and greet him.
Don't look at him that way!

In Oaxaca they pay for bravery
With a hooter of mezcal.
And without a single rival
Are their beautiful young gals.

No one ever scares me.
At them all I do is guffaw.

CLICK FOR ACCESSAnd to prove this I danced a two-step
Upon a dandy from Guadalajar.

The Oaxaca calavera
Has just arrived today.
Take off your hat and greet him
Because he's here to stay.

For all of you who like to travel, be assured that in the afterlife you'll get a chance to come back, kick up your heels with loved ones and, like the Calavera Oaxaquena, raise hell. So three cheers to the life of the dead - in Mexican folk art!
