New song in the making about Guanajuato, Mexico which I visited over 20 years ago during its festival celebrating Miguel Cervantes, author of Don Quixote.

Key: deletions, additions, (translations) Stumbled onto Guanajuato It still lingers in my dreams Cityscape was is a mosaic Of yellows, pinks and greens Formed as though a cubist painting The mountains were are its frames Think Picasso, angles, shadows Layered shapes and planes Happened onto “Cervantino” (name of Cervantes festival) Singing and parades Celebrating Don Quixote, And his gallant escapades Chorus 2x La la la la la la La la la la la la La la la la lai La la la la lai Entered into a taberna (tavern) And left behind the streets Near a wall we found a table And a couple open seats Drank tequila with the locals Transcended space and time Don Quixote, Sancho Panza Tapas Botanas, salt and lime (appetizers) At our table came a peddler With a small metallic box Knobs and dials, clamps and cables Hawking electroshocks Mi amigo, Don Quixote Was chivalrous and brave And the Guanajuatan people Cheered him through his pain Chorus 2x La la la la la la La la la la la la Lai la la la lai Lai la la la lai Hours later, in a plaza Beneath the yellow moon Came an old man and his burro And he offered us a room Guanajuato, Guanajuato Where surreality surrealism is found Guanajuato, Guanajuato I’m Guanajuato bound Guanajuato, Guanajuato I'm Guanajuato bound
