Speedy Gonzales
Pat Boone Lyrics


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 a your a-drinkin'
With that floozy named Flo
Come on home to your adobe
And slap some mud on the wall
The roof is leakin' like a strainer
There's loads a roaches in the hall

Speedy Gonzales, why don't cha come home?
Speedy Gonzales, how come ya leave me all alone?

"Hey, Rosita, I hafta go shopping downtown for my mother
She needs some tortillas and chili peppers."

Your doggy's gonna have a puppy
And we're runnin' outta Coke
No enchiladas in the icebox
And the television's broke
I saw some lipstick on your sweatshirt
I smelled some perfume in your ear
Well if you're gonna keep on messin'
Don't bring your business back a-here

Mmm, Speedy Gonzales, why don't cha come home?
Speedy Gonzales, how come ya leave me all alone?

"Hey, Rosita come quick
Down at the cantina they giving green stamps with tequila!!"

Δεν ξαναβόσκω άλλες βουβάλες, δεν θέλω μήτε να τις δω
Με μπίζνες έμπλεξα μεγάλες και στην Αθήνα κατοικώ

Εδώ ότι θέλεις κάνεις και κανένα δε ρωτάς

στο χωριό για να φιλήσεις, νιώθεις σαν κλεφτοκοτάς


Στο σπίτ' στο Κακοσάλεσ' (τσου-, τσουμπά-, τσουμπάνη)

δεν ματαξαναγυρνώ (τσου-, τσουμπά-, τσουμπάνη)

Στάνες και βουβάλες (τσου-, τσουμπά-, τσουμπάνη)

να γίνουν όλα ρημαδιό

Με πουλήσαν παραμύθι, θα τα βρω μπαστούνια δήθεν
Παραλίγο να πιστέψω τον κουμπάρο τον ξεφτίλα
Miliokas do it better !!!!
