Subject: Lyr Req: pass the tequila, sheila
From: john f weldon
Date: 05 Nov 07 - 10:32 AM

Many years ago, beloved idiot MP John Crosbie managed to offend Overly sensitive MP Sheila Copps by singing the words...

"Pass the Tequila, Sheila,
Lay down and Love me again!"

This sounds like part of a real song; anyone know the rest???????

So pour me another tequila sheila
Take off that red satin dress ......
.......and lay down & love me again


Sung by Bobby Bare I believe & possibly written by Shel Silverstein but its been many years since I heard it.
Used to be popular in the early eighties.

Pour me another tequila, Shela; take off your red satin dress.
I crossed the border, and I beat the dealer, for all the damn gold in Juarez.
I feel like old Poncho Villa, Sheila, and I sure could use me a friend,
So pour me another tequila, Sheila, and lay down and love me again.

Artist: Bare Bobby
Song: Tequila Sheila
Album: Down & Dirty
        

Chorus:
Pour me another Tequila Sheila,
Take off that red satin dress
I cross the border and I beat the dealer
For all the damn gold in Juarez.

I feel like old Pancho Villa, Sheila
And sure could use a friend (I got Pesso to spend)
So pour me another Tequila Sheila
And lay down n'love me again.

Though I can tell you about it
But don't mind my gun by the bed
I feel kind of naked without it
And it eases the fear in my head.

Just pass me the salt n'the lemon
Bend down n'blow out the light
I never had trusted the woman
But Sheila I'll trust you tonight.

Chorus:
Pour me another Tequila Sheila
Take off that red satin dress
I cross the border and I beat the dealer
Dor all the damn gold in Juarez.

I feel like old Pancho Villa, Sheila
And sure could use a friend (I got Pesso to spend)
So pour me another Tequila Sheila,
And lay down n'love me again..

Sheila I'm hearing your heart beat
But I'm hearing footsteps outside
The courtyard is crawling with damn federalists
And Sheila there's no place to hide.

I don't know who could have tipped them
nobody knew but you
But I can't make love to a squealer, Sheila
So I guess there's just one thing to do.

Pour me another Tequila Sheila.
I'm gonna put on your red dress, you put on my cloths
You go out and face the dealer
And Sheila, I wish you the best.

I feel like old Pancho Villa, Sheila
I need a fast horse and a friend
So pour me another Tequila Sheila
And I'll ride towards the border again...

I've been singing it for over 15 years (and referring to it as a "south of the border ballad") with a few variations on the above lyrics. Knew Shel Silverstein wrote it, but never ran into a recording. Since my random access memory is getting more and more random, I'm not certain who, exactly, I stole it from, but a likely candidate is Judy Cook. I finish it with a chorus of "la las" (ending with a flat one) but I may have stolen that idea from her, too.

I just love the line "I never thought you were a squealer, Sheiler"...

Linn

(chorus)
       Pour me another tequila, Sheila
        Take off your red satin dress.
        I crossed the border and I beat the dealer
        For all the damned gold in Juarez.
        I feel like old Pancho Villa, Sheila
        A fast horse and gun is my friend.
        So pour me another tequila, Sheila
        Lay down and love me again.

No I can't tell you about it.
So just leave the gun by the bed.
I feel kind of naked without it,
But it eases all the fears in my head.
Pass me the salt and the lemon
And bend down and blow out the light.
I never much trusted a woman before,
But, Sheila, I trust you tonight.      [ I added, spoken, "Big mistake"]
(chorus)

Sheila, I'm feeling your heart beat,
But I can hear footsteps outside.
The courtyard is full of them damned Federales.
Sheila, there's no place to hide.
I don't know who could have led them here
'Cause nobody knew it but you.       [point to someone in audience]
I never thought you were a squealer, Sheiler
Now there's just one thing to do.

        So, pour me another tequila, Sheila.
        I'll put on your red satin dress.
        And you'll put on my clothes
        And go out and face the dealer.
        Sheila, I wish you the best.    [wave]
        I feel like old Pancho Villa, Sheila,
        A fast horse and gun is my friend.
        Pour me another tequila, Sheila,
        (Pour me another tequila, Sheila,
        Pour me another tequila, Sheila,)
        I'll cross the border again.
        La la la lala, etc.

Apparently there are two very different songs with this title. One hilarious one is on radio now, and it was so funny and well-written I thought I'd pass it on.


TEQUILA SHEILA
Artist: Flynnville Train

CHO:
She was sippin' on a margerita,
She was holdin' down a corner stool,
She dialed me in with her instamatic grin,
You know I thought she thought that I was cool.
I have to say I had me a good time,
Yeah even with the shape I'm in, Ah,
She led me astray
Una Mas a Jose'--
Tequila Sheila strikes again.

1. Woke up in a motel bed,
Frieght train runnin' through my head,
Minus my wallet, my watch and my boots,
The only thing she left me was my birthday suit!
I faintly remember a-havin' a ball,
But the last thing I really recall... is

CHO

Just then came a knock at the door,
Cops bust in, throw me down on the floor,
Said my ol' truck was in a robbery,
And I look just like the fella in the passenger seat.
I thought the judge would understand,
So I told him ya'll, when I raised my hand...

CHO

Ahoooohoohoo Tequila Sheila strikes again
Ahoooohoohoo Tequila Sheila strikes again

3. They found me guilty of a crime,
Now I'm eatin' bologna, doin' 11-29,
Sharin' a cell, with a fella named Miguel.
I asked what he was in for,
He told me, Senor...

CHO

Here's t'other. I believe there are videos of each at YouTube.


TEQUILA SHEILA
(Davis / Silverstein)
Bobby Bare - 1980


CHORUS:
Pour me another tequila, Sheila.
Take off that red satin dress.
'Cause I crossed the border,
And I beat the dealer for all of that gold in Juarez.
I feel just like ol' Pancho Villa, Sheila,
And I've got the pesos to spend,
So pour me another tequila, Sheila.
And lay down and love me again.

No I can't tell you about it.
Don't mind the gun by my bed,
But I feel kind'a naked without it,
And it eases the fears in my head.
I never have trusted in woman,
But Sheila I trust you tonight.
So pass me the salt and a lemon,
Bend down and blow out the light.

CHORUS

Sheila I'm hearin' your heartbeat,
But I'm hearing footsteps outside.
The courtyard is crawlin' with them Federales
And Sheila, there's no place to hide,
Now I don't know who could have tipped 'em,
Nobody knew it but you,
But I never have trusted the women,
Sheila here's what I'm going to do. Yeah!

CHORUS

Pour me another tequila,
I'm goin' ta put on your red satin dress
You put on my clothes,
And you go out and face the dealer.
And Sheila I wish you the best.
I never trusted in women,
Sheila I trusted you tonight.
So pour me another tequila Sheila,
And I'll run for the border again.

Yeah! Pour me another tequilla, Sheila,
As I ride for the border tonight.
