Lyrics

It's gonna boom Mariachi
This really fine piece of madera
And this will be on the counter
Of the Pueblo Tabacalera
Shape it up, Shape it up,
All around the world

And this keel could save a life
When the storms hit the Pacific
To make it really true
You gotta be...specific
Shape it up, shape it up,
All around the world

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

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!

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
Shape it up, Shape it up
All around the world

Keep the lantern bright
Keep food upon the table
If you shape it well tonight
As long as you are able
Shape it up, Shape it up
All around the world
All around the world
