Speedy Gonzales
Single released by Pat Boone in 1962, reached number 2 in UK
Tab by bass50611. This is how I would play it on stage and more or
Less as the original upright bass line. Very easy to play.

Spoken: It was a moonlit night in old Mexico.  I walked alone between some old
Adobe haciendas.  Suddenly, I heard the plaintive cry of a young Mexican girl.

You better come home, Speedy Gonzales
Away from tannery row
Stop alla your a-drinkin'
With that floozie named Flo
Come on home to your adobe
And slap some mud on the wall
The roof is leakin' like a strainer
There's loadsa roaches in the hall

Speedy Gonzales, why don'tcha come home?
Speedy Gonzales, how come ya leave me all alone?

Spoken in a male Mexican accent: "Hey, Rosita-I hafta go shopping downtown
For my mudder-she needs some tortillas and chili peppers. "

Your doggy's gonna have a puppy
And we're runnin' outta coke
No enchiladas in the icebox
And the television's broke
I saw some lipstick on your sweatshirt
I smelled some perfume in your ear
Well if you're gonna keep on messin'
Don't bring your business back a-here

Mmm, Speedy Gonzales, why don'tcha come home?
Speedy Gonzales, how come ya leave me all alone?

Spoken in a male Mexican accent: "Hey, Rosita-come queek-down at the cantina
They giving green stamps with tequila!! "
