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!!"
