Verse 1
It's gonna boom Mariachi
This really fine piece of madera
And this will be the counter
Of the Pueblo Tabacalera
Shape, it up, shape it up, shape it up, shape it up
All around the world
Verse 2
Oh, this keel could save a life
When the storms hit the Pacific
To make it really true
You really gotta be specific
Verse 3
Shape, it up, shape it up, shape it up, shape it up
Shape, it up, shape it up, shape it up, shape it up
All around the world
Verse 4
Keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
If you shape it well tonight
As well as you are able
Keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
If you shape it well tonight
As well as you are able
All around the world
Verse 5
From the Yukon comes a cowboy
De La Foret en La Montagne
Puts a grease gun to his elbow, saying
Never go against the grain
Never go against that grain
Shoot the dog, shoot the dog
Verse 6
Oh, keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
If you shape it well tonight
As well as you are able
Keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
If you shape it well tonight
As well as you are able
Verse 7
Shape, it up, shape it up, shape it up, shape it up
Shape, it up, shape it up, shape it up, shape it up
All around the world
All around the world
Verse 8
Keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
If you shape it well tonight
As well as you are able
Keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
If you shape it well tonight
As well as you are able
All around the world
