lamp shade and cold cafe

lamp shades and cold coffee...

“!Discu’lpenme, caballeros! Me gustaria hacer un anuncio. Esta es mi esposa. Es de buena familia. No la miren.”

sleepy eyes and cold cafe

hat’s a lamp shade sombrero

a scar, a ‘stash— eez tough hombre

Pancho Villa’s mi caballero

 

bandeleros with mucho bang

vee hates de Federales!

have a sip of mi cafe, mang

joo vant some hot frijoles?

 

holy mole, madre!

vee fight de peasant fight

perdoneme, mi Padre

Christo protect us thru dees night

 

rapido, rapido to our burros

to dees battle vee gots to ride!

viva la revolution lost

and de Mexicano pride

 

so see joo later, gringo

joo better gets outta here

take a peecture if  joo vant to

vee von’t show joo any fear

 

sleepy eyes and cold cafe

hat’s a lamp shade sombrero

a scar, a ‘stash— eez tough hombre

Pancho Villa’s mi caballero!
