tijuana madonna

she’s got rose lips and disco hips
she’s got culture in her blood.
she’s raven-haired and tempestuous
& she knows how to get her kicks

she’s the tijuana madonna
& she’s the queen of town

she’ll drag you out of bed when you’re feeling blue
and tell you to be cool when you’re acting a fool
she walks like Naomi and pouts like Marilyn
she’s a unicorn y’all, that’s a double 10

she’s the tijuana madonna
& she’s the queen of town

she’s a black magic woman
with curandera dreams
she’s got nails like Pushkin
& her eyes are tropical seas

she’s the tijuana madonna
& she’s the queen of town

she’s our Tinderella in brocade pants
& she’s in the city to take a chance
she’s the princess of the chateau on an Ikea throne,
drinking Tecate off the downtown pay phone

she’s the tijuana madonna
& she’s the queen of town

she’s got sass & sauce,
she’s a star like ten thousand watts
she’s wearin’ hats like Kate Moss
and turning out emails like a bawss

that’s my best friend y’all,
she’s the tijuana madonna
& she’s the queen of town
she’s the queen of town
