    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
