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:
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 LA LA LA
 


Cowriters: Buddy Kaye, David Hill
