John Roy was a boy I knew
 Since he was 3 and I was two
Grew up two little houses down from me
The only bad apples on our family tree
 Kinda ripened and rottened in our puberty 
Two kindred spirits bound by destiny 
Well now I was smart but I lacked ambition
 Johnny was wild with no inhibition 
Was about like mixin' fire and gasoline 
And he'd say

Hey Romeo, let's go down to Mexico  Chase senoritas drink ourselves silly 
Show them Mexican girls a couple real hillbillies 
Got a pocket full of cash and that old Ford truck  Fuzzy cat hangin' from the mirror for luck
Said don't you know all those little brown-eyed girls 
Want playboys of the southwestern world

Long around our tenth year
We found two airplane tickets to the hell outta here
Got scholarships to some small town school in Texas 
We learned to drink Sangrias 'til the dawn's early light
Eat eggs Ranchero's and throw up all night 
And tell those daddy's girls we were majorin' in the rodeo 
Aw but my favorite memory of school that fall
Was the night John Roy came runnin' down in the hall
Wearin' nothing but cowboy boots and a big sombrero 
And he was yellin'

Hey Romeo, let's go down to Mexico  Chase senoritas drink ourselves silly 
Show them Mexican girls a couple real hillbillies 
Got a pocket full of cash and that old Ford truck  Fuzzy cat hangin' from the mirror for luck
Said don't you know all those little brown-eyed girls 
Want playboys of the southwestern world

And I say we had a little change in plans 
Like when Paul McCartney got busted in Japan 
And I said we got waylaid when we set foot on Mexican soil
You see the borderman guard with a fu manchu mustach
 Kinda stumbled on John's pocketful of American cash
He said "doin' a little funny business in Mexico Amigo"
But all I could think about was savin' my own tail
When he metioned 10 years in a Mexican jail
So I pointed at John Roy and said
It's all his, now please let me go, I mean it was your idea genius 
I was just layin' there in bed, when you said

Hey Romeo, let's go down to Mexico  Chase senoritas drink ourselves silly 
Show them Mexican girls a couple real hillbillies 
Got a pocket full of cash and that old Ford truck  Fuzzy cat hangin' from the mirror for luck
Said don't you know all those little brown-eyed girls 
Want playboys of the southwestern world

Ah we're still best friends  Temporary cell mates 
Whoo
