Lyrics ON A DAY LIKE TODAY,
WE PASS THE TIME AWAY
WRITING LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND.
OH, YOU LAUGHED WHEN I CRIED
EACH TIME I SAW THE TIDE TAKE
OUR LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND.

YOU MADE A VOW
THAT YOU WOULD ALWAYS BE TRUE.
BUT SOMEHOW,
THAT VOW MEANT NOTHING TO YOU.

NOW MY POOR HEART JUST ACHES
WITH EVERY WAVE THAT BREAKS
OVER LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND.

Lyrics verse 1:
spoken: CONSUELA, SHE SAY:
YOU BETTER COME HOME
SPEEDY GONZALES,
AWAY FROM CANNERY ROW,
STOP ALL OF YOUR 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 LOTS OF GARBAGE
IN THE HALL.

Chorus:
SPEEDY GONZALES,
WHY DON'T YOU COME HOME?
SPEEDY GONZALES,
HOW COME YOU LEAVE ME ALL ALONE?
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA.

verse 2:
YOUR DOG IS GONNA HAVE A PUPPY
AND WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF COKE,
NO ENCHILADAS IN THE ICE BOX
AND THE TELEVISION'S BROKE.
I SAW SOME LIPSTICK
ON YOUR SWEATSHIRT,
I SMELL THE PERFUME
IN YOUR EAR.
WELL,
IF YOU'RE GONNA KEEP ON MESSIN',
DON'T BRING YOUR BUSINESS
BACK HERE.

Chorus

fade:

Lyrics WHY BABY WHY
DON'T YOU TREAT ME
WHY, BABY, WHY?
LIKE YOU USED TO DO?
WHY, BABY, WHY?
WHY, BABY,
BABY DON'T YOU NEED ME
WHY, BABY, WHY?
LIKE I'M NEEDIN' YOU?
IF YOU NEED LOVE
AND AFFECTION,
WHY, BABY, WHY?
COME TO MY LOVIN' ARMS.
WHY, BABY, WHY?
I'LL BE YOUR SHIELD
AND PROTECTION,
WHY, BABY, WHY?
I WON'T DO YA NO HARM.

THERE WILL BE NO TROUBLE
AND STRIFE,
I'LL BE YOUR SLAVE
THE REST OF MY LIFE,
I OFFER YOU MY HEART
AND SOUL,
WRAPPED UP
IN A BAG OF GOLD.

WHY, BABY,
WHY DO YOU TEASE ME,
WHY, BABY, WHY?
WON'T YOU PLEASE BE FAIR?
WHY, BABY, WHY?
WHY, BABY,
WHY WON'T YOU PLEASE ME
WHY, BABY, WHY?
WHEN YA KNOW YOU CARE.

THERE WILL BE NO TROUBLE

I'LL BE YOUR SLAVE
THE REST OF MY LIFE,
I OFFER YOU MY HEART
AND SOUL,
WRAPPED UP IN
A BAG OF GOLD.

WHY, BABY,
WHY DO YOU TEASE ME,
WHY, BABY, WHY?
WON'T YOU PLEASE BE FAIR?
WHY, BABY, WHY?
WHY, BABY,
WHY WON'T YOU PLEASE ME
WHY, BABY, WHY?
WHEN YA KNOW YOU CARE.

WHEN YA KNOW YOU CARE,
WHEN YA KNOW YOU CARE.
