Song Lyrics

Some Spanish lessons for the French

Unos, dos, tres, catorce

Lights go down it’s dark
The jungle is your head
Can’t rule your heart
A feeling so much stronger than a thought
Your eyes are wide and though your soul it can’t be bought
Your mind can wander

Hello, hello
Hola
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Dond’ esta
It’s everything I wish I didn’t know
You give me something I can feel

The night is full of holes
As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They sparkle as the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can’t dance
At least they know

I can’t stand the beats
I’m asking for the check
Girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus ‘round her neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Hello, hello
Hola
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Dond’ esta
It’s everything I wish I didn’t know
You, give me something, I can feel

Checkmated
Hours of fun
Your man is mad at all

All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want
And no one gets… hurt

Hello, hello
Hola
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Dond’ esta
Lights go down and all I know
You give me something
I can feel your love teaching me how, how
Your love is teaching me how
How to kneel, kneel

Yeah, yeah, yeah…

This is a rock n’roll show
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
It’s a rock n’roll show
And rock n’roll saved my life
You saved my life
These three men saved my life
On the bass, from the Arden Amara estates
The jazzman of the group, Adam Clayton

On the drums, the man who gave us our first job
And will never forget it, we’ll never forget it
From Rosemount Avenue, Larry Mullen Jr.
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

From Saint Margaret’s Park, Malahide
On guitars and a whole pile of shit that even he doesn’t understand
The genius of the group, The Edge

Thank you

Yeah, yeah, yeah…

Rock n’roll saved our life
