Lyrics

We met during dia de muertos, we danced and I stepped on her bare toes
Inspired by the crazy ofrenda, we put mescal on our agenda
The flowers and music were festive, the skulls somehow we found suggestive
I took her upstairs and unfrocked her, I said it’s okay I’m a doctor

But morning was a different story, I thought I was in purgatory
I had a fierce pain in my head, and the woman beside me was dead
I had no idea when or how, my memory’s blank even now
The girl I hoped would be my bride, was now just a body to hide
I almost got her out of town, but my stupid Trans Am broke down
If you’re looking for someone to wed, don’t choose the day of the dead

We met during dia de muertos, we danced and I stepped on her bare toes
Inspired by the crazy ofrenda, we put mescal on our agenda
