about

This song melds together images and ideas generated by living in a small beach town (Playa Grande) in Costa Rica. There is a Taco Star on the beach there - you should go have a taco and a beer and say hi to Brittany!

lyrics

TACO STAR

Here comes Maria with a pink surf board
And a little white dog with a spiked collar on
You can tell the tide by the speed of her stride
And the rhythm of her flip flops spanking on the ground

She’s being followed by Miguel, on his trike
Selling cold coconuts that he opens with a knife
And the way he circles ‘round her and the way his words flounder
You know that he’s been following her most of his life

Down at Taco Star they drink cervezas
To the sound of old reggae while the surf wax melts
Up on the shelf there’s a dusty, old picture
Of a young hippie couple, with machetes in their belts
And down at Taco Star they drink cervezas

Out on the beach there’s a faded umbrella
Shading an old couple with their eyes on the sea
He peels a mango and says “look at them kids go”
She says “That used to be you and me!”

Down at Taco Star they drink cervezas
To the sound of old reggae while the surf wax melts
Up on the shelf there’s a dusty, old picture
Of a young hippie couple, with machetes in their belts
And down at Taco Star they drink cervezas

After the rain the crabs fill the street
And they crunch under your wheels
and you’d better watch your feet
Well down here we’re still ruled by mother nature
If you do come around, you may be more lost than found

Down at Taco Star they drink cervezas
To the sound of old reggae while the surf wax melts
Up on the shelf there’s a dusty, old picture
Of a young hippie couple, with machetes in their belts
And down at Taco Star they drink cervezas
