Santeria Lyrics – Sublime


I don’t practice Santeria, I ain’t got no crystal ball
Well, I had a million dollars but I’d, I’d spend it all
If I could find that Heina and that Sancho that she’s found
Well, I’d pop a cap in Sancho and I’d slap her down

What I really want to know
Ah, baby, mm
What I really want to say
I can’t define
Well it’s love that I need
Oh, my soul will have to wait ’til I get back and find
Heina of my own
Daddy’s gonna love one and all
I feel the break, feel the break
Feel the break and I got to live it up, oh yeah huh

Well, I swear that I, well I really want to know
Ah, baby, what I really want to say, I can’t define
That love, make it go, my soul will have to

Ooh, what I really want to say, ah baby
What I really want to say, is I’ve got mine
And I’ll make it, yes, I’m going up
Tell Sanchito that if he knows what is good for him
He best go run and hide
Daddy’s got a new .45
And I won’t think twice to stick that barrel straight down Sancho’s throat
Believe me when I say that I got something for his punk ass

What I really want know, my baby
Ooh, what I really want to say is there’s just one way back
And I’ll make it, yeah, my soul will have to wait

Yeah, yeah, yeah

About Sublime

Long Beach, California-based reggae rock and ska punk band Sublime formed in 1988. Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass), and Bud Gaugh (drums) were the band’s original line-up until their breakup. The band’s mascot was Lou Dog, Nowell’s dalmatian. It was Nowell’s death in 1996 that resulted in Sublime’s breakup. U.S. radio stations played songs like “What I Got”, “Santeria”, “Wrong Way”, “Doin’ Time”, and “April 29, 1992 (Miami)” in 1997.

Sublime released three studio albums, one live album, five compilation albums (including one that contained never-before-released material), three EPs, and one box set. Although the first two albums of this band were 40oz. Although Sublime’s two albums—to Freedom (1992) and Robbin’ the Hood (1994) were quite popular in the United States, their third album, released two months after Nowell’s death, peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard 200, spawned the single “What I Got”, which remains the band’s only No. 1 hit song (on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart) in their career. Approximately ten million albums have been sold in the U.S. alone as of 2009. In addition to Marshall “Ras MG” Goodman and Michael “Miguel” Happoldt, there are several songs by Sublime by them.

In 1997, former Sublime members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh formed the Long Beach Dub Allstars, which included many frequent Sublime contributors such as Michael “Miguel” Happoldt (former Ziggens), Marshall Goodman (former Sublime member), and Todd Forman (3rd Alley). Due to several band members breaking a no-drug vow, LBDAS disbanded in 2002. Rome Ramirez, a young guitarist from California and admitted Sublime fan, attempted to reform the band in 2009. A Los Angeles judge, however, banned the new lineup from using the Sublime name as they needed permission from Nowell’s estate, which owns the Sublime name. Wilson, Gaugh, and Ramirez changed the group’s name to Sublime with Rome, which has since released three albums, although Gaugh left shortly after the release of Yours Truly in 2011.
