Jesus, those are some ballsy lyrics - "Give me what I want, and no-one get's hurt!"

What's with all the Spanish/Mexican language? Not that I'm complaining - makes it that little bit cooler!

Been listenening to it on repeat for about half an hour now ... I wonder if I'll get bored at any point ...

Hola amigos, here's the full lyrics, taken from

http://www.macphisto.net/u2lyrics/Vertigo.html


U2 Lyrics - Vertigo

Unos, dos, tres, catorce [1,2,3,14; could be also mispronounced by Bono or misheard "once, doce, trece, catorce" 11,12,13,14 ?]

Turn it up loud, captain!

Lights go down
It's dark
The jungle is your head
Can't rule your heart
I'm feeling so much stronger
Than I thought
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul
it can't be bought
your mind can wander

Hello, Hello
Hola! [Spanish for Hello]
I'm at a place called vertigo (¿Dónde está?) [Where is it?]
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something I can feel
Feel

The night is full of holes
Those bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They twinkle as the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know

I can't stand the beat
I'm askin' for the cheque
Girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round the neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music
Woooao

Hello, Hello
Hola!
I'm at a place called Vertigo (¿Dónde está?) [Where is it?]
It's everything I wish I didn't know
But you give me something I can feel
Feel

All this, all this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want
And no one gets hurt

Hello, Hello
Hola!
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Lights go down and all I know
Is that you give me something I can feel
You're teaching me ...aaahhh
Your love is teaching me ...aaaah
How to kneel
Kneel

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

I'm under the impression that at the beginning of the song, Bono is shouting "Uno, dos, tres" and then the "quatro, cinco, seis" follow all in a rush -- it doesn't sound at all like "catorce" to me.
