Calexico is a Tucson, Arizona-based Americana / Tex-Mex / indie rock band. The band's two main members, Joey Burns and John Convertino, first played together in Los Angeles as part of the group Giant Sand. They have recorded a number of albums on Quarterstick Records, while their 2005 EP In the Reins recorded with Iron & Wine has reached the Billboard 200 album charts. Their musical style is influenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi / conjunto / cumbia / Tejano music and also the Southwestern United States country music as well as '50s-'60s jazz and '90s-'00s post-rock, and they have been described by some as "desert noir" or indie rock. The band is named for the border town of Calexico, California. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Tired of being the good cop
I'm gonna do what I please
Don't hand me any more allegations
Of misconduct or sanction me
I got the world in my hands
Can make it rain or flood
I've got my fingers in all the pots
And toxic waste in my blood
In my blood

Don't try to look away
Or stop me in my path
I'll make the law and I decree
A new kind of wrath

Whenever I want, whatever I need
Wherever I go don't stop me
Whenever I want, whatever I need
If you try to resist or put up a fight
I'll take you and the whole world with me
You and the whole world with me
I'll take you and the whole world with me

I'll pick your pocket in plain daylight
And no one move a muscle
I got my eye on the prize
You're drowning in your lies

You and the whole world with me
I'll take you and the whole world with me
I'll take you and the whole world with me
