Deal goin' down
Lyrics
Senoritas on the sidewalk,
Try'n'a make some money
Never notice, pass them by
Mind is occupied with shop-talk
Somethin' in the detail
Makes you ask the question why

Pay attention to the good guys,
Try'n'a make a collar
They ain't always what they seem
They been dealin' with the bad guys
Try'n'a make a dollar
Someone cheatin' on the team

And as you stumble round
Ever lookin' for a clue
From silent alleyways
Their eyes are only fixed on you

There's a deal goin' down
'round the corner
There's a deal goin' down
Think I better warn ya
Better keep yo head down
Stay outta trouble
There's a price on your head
(Go, git outta town!)

Manolito on the barstool
Spendin' all his money
Lookin' for some thrills and kills
Old Rodriguez and stiletto
He would kill a honey
Maybe use a poison pill?

And as you stumble round
Ever lookin' for a clue
From silent alleyways
Their eyes are only fixed on you

There's a deal goin' down
'round the corner
There's a deal goin' down
Think I better warn ya
Better keep yo head down
Stay outta trouble
There's a price on your head
(Go, stay outta town!)
