Tortalina to the End!

 

(Curtis Dixon singing tortalina.mp3 and accompanying himself on the guitar)


There’s so much going around these days

So much going around

I’m thinking of leaving town one day

Thinking of leaving town

Cause I’m all dried up and my blood don’t squirt

My eyes blind shut so the mud won’t hurt

My minds made up that it’s time for dessert

So much going around


I’m moving to the coast these days

Moving to the coast

I don’t mean to boast these days

Living on the coast

But the life is slow and the days go quick

So I’m making the most of my life of shit

I’m buttering toast through all of it

Living on the coast


Hold on tortalina, you don’t get me scared

Most of what you tempt me with are feelings that we’ve shared

Oh tortalina, my urges boil and brew

So I’m going to a place

In the middle of your face

And I’m not inviting you

No, I’m not inviting you


Hold on tortalina, you don’t get me scared

Most of what you tempt me with are feelings that we’ve shared

Oh tortalina, my urges boil and brew

So I’m going to a place

In the middle of your face

And I’m not inviting you

No, I’m not inviting you
