Story Behind the Song

A demagogue dreams of making it to the top

Lyrics

LAST PLANE TO MEXICO

Long ago when I was three
My mother put me on her knee
And told me that one day they'd know my name

She protected me from undue harm
Raised us all upon the farm
She told me I'd end up in the Hall of Fame

So I grew up and made a vow
Even though I did not know how
To be the man all knew from near and far
Mother wanted me to be the one and only lone shining star

But I'll leave, I'll leave in the summer
Way down south, that's where I'll go
When life is but a game and LOST its meaning
That's when I'll catch the last plane to Mexico

Father was set in the ground
So I decided to leave town
Came to the city
Without my kin
Didn't take me very long
To find out there's no right or wrong
Here in the city, cheatings no great sin

Long ago mother said to me
Be all that you've got to be
And never tell yourself you've gotta stop
Here beneath the city lights, I'm going to make it to the top

Chorus:
Yes I'll leave, leave in the summer
Down in Mexico that's where I'll be
Away from the bright lights and the bustle
I'll live off the land feeling free

But I'll leave, I'll leave in the summer
Way down south, that's where I'll go
When life is but a game and LOST its meaning
That's when I'll catch the last plane to Mexico
