My baby keeps a-spending all my money, all my money
As she sidles up to me and whispers honey bunny
I tell her that I'm broke now and you know that that ain't funny
As my disposition sinks to the other side of sunny
Gonna jump in a hole
Nowhere else to go
And I'm losin' control
This girl is taking a toll

She drops me a text wants my credit card number
Ran into some bargains on the other side of town
She said she'll pay me back when she cashes her next paycheck
In the meantime has the need to throw a few dollars down
Gonna jump in a lake
That girls' on the make
Now's the time to break
I've had all I can take

Later in the evening get a call on my cell phone
My baby tells me that she needs some money for bail
There was a misunderstanding at a box store on the east side
Bring a bucket of cash and get me out of this jail
Gonna jump in a hole
This girl is taking a toll
Gonna jump in a lake
I've had all I can take
Nowhere else to go
I'm off to Mexico

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.
