Señorita with a Necklace of Tears

I have a wisdom tooth inside my crowded face
I have a friend who is a born-again found his savior's grace
I was born before my father and my children before me
We are born and born again like the waves of the sea
That's the way it's always been
And that's how I want it to be

Nothing but good news

There is a frog in South America whose venom is a cure
For all the suffering that mankind must endure
More powerful than morphine and soothing as the rain
A frog in South America has the antidote for pain
That's the way it's always been
And that's the way I like it

Some people never say no, some people never complain
Some folks have no idea and others will never explain
That's the way it's always been
That's the way I like it
And that's how I want it to be
That's the way it's always been
That's the way I like it
And that's how I want it to be

If I could play all the memories in the neck of my guitar
I'd write a song called "Señorita with a necklace of tears"
And every tear a sin I'd committed oh these many years
That's who I was
That's the way it's always been

Some people always want more, some people are what they lack
Some folks open a door, walk away and never look back
I don't want to be a judge and I don't want to be a jury
I know who I am, Lord knows who I will be
That's the way it's always been
That's the way I like it
And that's how I want it to be
That's the way it's always been
That's the way I like it
And that's how I want it to be
