lyrics

Dreamt I won a raffle
Got a Winnebago
Insurance was killin' me
Sold it for a Volvo
Drove across Nebraska
Lost control, slammed into a tree

Had no health insurance
Bought an airline ticket
Flew south to the City of Belize
Headed down to Queen Street
Found old Mama Chen's
Got the guesthouse overrun with fleas

Dreams are strange
Dreams are no small change
Dreams can make you whole
Dreams can save your soul

Ran back to the airport
Couldn't find my passport
Policia threw me in a tiny room
Stole my clothes and toothbrush
Naked with six strangers
Gin rummy was the last thing on their minds

So I flew out through the window
On wings of Chinese cardboard
Soaring high above the Gulf of Mexico
Landed in Beatrice
What used to be my front yard
Head first in over three feet of snow

Dreams are strange
Dreams are no small change
Dreams can make you whole
Dreams can save your soul

about

The Carnivaleros Tucson, Arizona

The Carnivaleros' music has always been difficult to define - they combine moody Eastern European motifs, western movie themes with strains of Zydeco rhythms, Tex-Mex polkas, waltzes and swing to create a stew of Desert Bayou Music.
