Lyrics

I can kill standing still - it's easy I can scare with a stare - it's easy

Hey Ringo, it's sad, though Because it's hard to walk tall when you're small Whether dressed in disciplined style, never mind When you're small you walk as if you're falling

I attack from the back because it's easy And I can assail while wearing very nice jewelry

Oh, hey Ringo, it's sad, though Because it's hard to walk tall when you're small Whether dressed in disciplined style, never mind When you're small you spend your life crawling

I burst into public bars And I throw my weight around And no one can even see me! No one can even see me! Nobody can see me! No one can see me!

Success is just a mess...

Oh, hey gringo, it's sad, though Because it's hard to walk tall when you're small Whether dressed in disciplined style, never mind When you're small you're bound to look appalling

So compadre, please do this for me: Compadre, please weep for me Compadre, compadre, please weep for me
