It was a moonlight night in old Mexico
I walked along between some old adobe haciendas
Suddenly, I heard the plaintive cry of a young Mexican girl:

      A                     F#m
La la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

You'd better come home, Speedy Gonzales
Away from Cannery Row
Stop all your drinkin'
With that floozie named Flo
Come on home to your adobe
And slap some mud on the wall
The roof is leakin' like a strainer
E7                               A
  There's lots of roaches in the hall

Speedy Gonzales (Speedy Gonzales)
Why don't you come home?
Speedy Gonzales (Speedy Gonzales)
How come you leave me all alone?

(Hey, Rosita! I have to go shopping downtown for my mother.  She needs some
   tortillas and chili peppers!)

La la la...

Verse 2:
Your dog is gonna have a puppy
And we're runnin' out of Coke
No enchiladas in the icebox
And the television's broke
I saw some lipstick on your sweatshirt
I smell some perfume in your ear
Well, if you're gonna keep a-messin'
Don't bring your business back-a here


(Hey, Rosita, come quick! Down at the Cantina they've got some green stamps
   with tequila!)

(repeat "la la la..." and fade)
