Señora Santa Ana
International Music & Culture
The Santa Ana winds are strong, extremely dry down-slope winds that originate inland and affect coastal Southern California and northern Baja California, and are infamous for fanning regional wildfires. The winds are commonly portrayed by writers of creative works as being responsible for a tense, uneasy, wrathful mood among Angelenos. On occasion they are referenced as Santana Winds, devil winds a translation of Santana , or the fire winds. Raymond Chandler 's detective story "Red Wind" opens with a description of the Santa Anas and their effect on the populace. There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks.
We need you!

From the tin rooftop the little boy did watch the procession down through town Through the museum where Daniel whupped the Devil with them boys from the underground Where the Giants of Science fight for tight control over the wildlands of New Mexico Sam Houston's ghost's in Texas fighting for his soul And the townsfolk rest uneasy beneath the guns of Kid Cole ahhhh And the kid says, "Hey, where is Santa Ana? Now some folks think cancer's taken to the streets of this town But Sandy eats her candy and then lays her money down Them cats are in from the canyons to strut their stuff in town But there's only secret sinners here, Lord, there's only secret thieves Only a fool would try to save what the desert chose to leave And now, hey there, senorita, with your playboys in their Spanish bandanas French cream won't soften those boots, baby French kisses will not break your heart, oh! O-ho, o-ho, o-ho, o-ho, o-ho, o-ho, ohh Oh, painted night set free with light glows outside the Rainbow Saloon Matching braces with a Spanish lady 'neath a graduation moon No more colleges, no more coronations, some punk's idea of a teenage nation Has forced Santa Ana to change his station from soldier to cartoon And the Giants of Science spend their days and nights Not with wives, not with lovers, but searching for the lights They spotted in the desert on their helicopter flights Just to be lost in the dust and the night Hey, now my contessa, in your juke joint rags you always bring candy for the kids Come waltz with me tonight senorita 'cause only fools are alone on a night like this, oh! Woahhh, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya Woahhh, you're callin', come on darlin' Alright! Woahhhhh Woahhh, alright Woah, ha, woah. The song is also known under the title "Hey Santa Ana".
