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!!"

As an old 61 year old mexican, I am truly offended I have never heard this song before. I love it!

Jimmy, as a 61 year old gringo who has heard it before, I still love it. I really hope no-one is offended! It makes me think Mexico for holiday.

El Mexico de Speedy Gonzalez es el que me fascina.
El bueno, astuto, valiente, inteligente, ganador y de personalidad libre, alegre y abierta.
Como Speedy Gonzalez. Viva México lindo!

I was a little girl when I heard someone in the neighborhood blast Speedy Gonzalez. It was an instant favourite to date.
