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

You better come home Speedy Gonzales,
away from tannery row.
Stop all of your drinking
with that floosie named Flo!
Come on home to your adobe
and slap some mud on the wall!
The roof is leaking like a strainer.
There's loads of roaches in the hall.

don't bring your business back a-here.
