Lyrics

well a long long long long time ago
before i was born that's all i know
there were two young cruel brave young men

their king said hit the road and come back again
they got the gig 'cause the king thought they had what it took
and the aztecs shivered and incas shook
they saw the white sails and muskets long
thought these are gods/but they were wrong

to the native people's sorrow
here come Cortez and Pizarro
Hernando and Francisco
hacked their way to heaven blow by blow
men of god in Spain they worked for someone else
in Mexico

they burned their ships upon the shore
said we ain't goin' back to Spain no more
in the smoking embers on the sand lay the future of the land

to the native people's sorrow
here come Cortez and Pizarro
Hernando and Francisco
hacked their way to heaven blow by blow
men of god in Spain they worked for someone else
in Mexico

now gifts were gave/hands were shook
but men are men/and man they took

now the thing that brought this on for me
was my cool earring and my new goatee
the mirror shows a 16th century caballero
so i thought i'd get some armor and grab my steed
ride down across the border and over the seas and
apologize from atop my palomino

for the native people's sorrow
for Cortez and Pizarro
Hernando and Francisco
hacked their way to heaven blow by blow
men of god in Spain they worked for someone else
in Mexico

The story of two conquistadores, accompanied with equal parts flamenco guitar and Marshall stack. Distorted vocals and lots of guitars make this song a lot more exciting than the history you learned in high school.
