Mexican Army Band by The Owl Parliament

Woke up this morning, with a trumpet in my hand,
I guess last night I joined the Mexican Army Band
Smoke started clearing, under the desert sky
Out walked the general and said ‘Son you saved our lives’.

We were outnumbered 10000 to 1.
Half of our Army had never shot a gun.

The sand was as hot, as the devil's fiery skin,
This was a battle that Tequila could never win,
We were surrounded on every side,
Our town was depleted and our well's had all run dry,
The rope had been hung for our execution,
but that when you came and joined our revolution.

Oh Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
Give us freedom.

You rode out on a back of a mule,
we almost mistook you for a drunken, stupid fool.
You rode that donkey, right through the camp,
and when you blew that horn, you took our freedom back.

Oh Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
Give us freedom.

Woke up this morning, with a trumpet in my hand,
now is it still useful in this Mexican army band?
