Schwa Lyrics

Mexican Opera

Lyricist: John Mullins
Vocalist: John Mullins


Coming around again, senoritas
Dollars and pesos, doesn't much matter to them
When we first arrived they were all there to greet us
We gringos with cash and not any sense between us
I'm sitting here, I got a Dos Equis and a tortilla.

I've been here so long I've got roots growing under my chair
Watch people pass by, Don Juan and Poncho Villa
Just one more beer to wash down this Sammy Hagar tequila

Sun's beaten down, I went out to me buy a sombrero
In the market I found around the corner from my drink
As I stumbled in I said, "sombrero y yo quiero?"
And when I fell on the floor I realized I lost all my dinero

Speedy Gonzalez, he dates my sister
Speedy Gonzalez, he dates everybody's sister

On the dash of the Vespa their hero, the chihuahua Juanita
When she smile and a smile it tells me that she doesn't care
That we're drowning out sorrows while life passes by our cantina

In a Mexican opera, is all that we have left to share
In a Mexican opera, is all that we have left to share
