Have you had the static on my radio
The tubes they glow in the dark
And I’m there with you in Ensenada
And I’m here in Echo Park

Carmelita, hold me tighter
Yeah, I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well I pawned my smith corona
And I went down to meet my man
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
At the Pioneer Chicken Stand

Carmelita, hold me tighter
Yeah, I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

— Instrumental —

Carmelita, hold me tighter

Yeah, I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well I’m sittin’ here playing solitaire
With my pearl handled deck
The county won’t give me no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check

Carmelita, hold me tighter
Yeah, I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Carmelita, hold me tighter
Yeah, I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Oh Yeah…
