Dirty Chateau (Ry Cooder)

I had a maid she used to come in days Made the bed and mopped the floor She didn't like my rowdy ways And she ain't coming back no more You waste all your precious time Italian movies and Portuguese wine Little round bottles all in a row You're an unclean man in a dirty chateau Dirty chateau it's long and it's tall Stick around we'll have a ball You'lI get stuck and before you know You'll be dancing around you're feeling all right In my dirty chateau She started life in the lettuce fields Up in Salinas where the farm work is done You go streaking by in your automobiles You don't even know where your lettuce comes from The short handled hoe it scarred my hands Tell me why do they love it so It broke mama down daddy too Now I work for you in your dirty chateau My friends are coming and they'd like to hear A real sad Mexican song or two They been drinking and they don't care Just what you been goin' through How bout Paloma Sin Nido Pa Que Me Sirve la Vida What about Pobre del Pobre Also Lamento de un Prisionero She used to call me borracho y perdido Said I was loco y jodido Buena para nada Nunca quiero ver tu cara But she's gone in the world somewhere Turlock somewhere, Stockton somewhere, Salinas somewhere, Los Angeles somewhere, I just don't know...
