Kaleo – Hey Gringo Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve been told that she’s good as gold
Yeah and she’ll leave you wanting more
Laying low but I could see the smoke
Oh and I knew it wouldn’t be long
I could stay or I could stay awake
Long enough to die another day
I could try to get it right
Whatever’s gonna keep you alive
Keep you alive

[Chorus]
Saying, “Who is smokin’ cigarettes?
Who is smokin’ somethin’ else?
Who is smokin’ cigarettes?
Who is smokin’ somethin’ else?”

[Verse 2]
Let it go
Oh, just take it slow
Don’t you go lookin’ for trouble now
I don’t know why I can’t let go
That woman’s got me rare naked choke
The man said no
Hey Gringo
Whoa, you better stay outta Mexico
And I said, “Whoa, hey, tranquilo, amigo”
I didn’t know she was spoken for
Now I’m a lover, not a fighter
It’s all bueno

[Chorus]
Saying, “Who is smokin’ cigarettes?
Who is smokin’ somethin’ else?

Who is smokin’ cigarettes?
Who is smokin’ somethin’ else?”

[Post-Chorus]
Is it you, is it you, is it you?
Whew, you better tell the truth
Is it you, is it you, is it you?

[Refrain]
Light it up, light it up
(Oh light it up now)
Light it up, light it up
Light it up, light it up

[Bridge]
I sold my soul for the sex, drugs and rock and roll
Said I sold my soul to a woman in Mexico
A woman in Mexico
Woah, woah, yeah-yeah, yeah, come on
You know I go, whew

[Chorus]
“Who is smokin’ cigarettes? (Smokin’ cigarettes)
Who is smokin’ somethin’ else? (Smokin’ somethin’ else)
Who is smokin’ cigarettes?
Who is smokin’ somethin’ else?”

[Outro]
Is it you, is it you, is it you?
Whew, yeah, yeah (Is it you, is it you, is it you?)
Tell the truth
Tell the truth
Whew, whew
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Whew-oo-ooh
