INTRO:(Ad lib) ( for orig.) 
A 
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: 
      A                     F#m                    D 
La la la..la la la la la la la...la la la la la la la...  
                  E7 
la la la la la la la. 

#1. 
E7                             A                        F#m 
You better come home Speedy Gonzales, away from Cannery Row. 
                 D                                 E7 
Stop all of your drinking, with that floosie named Flo. 
                      A                              F#m 
Come on home to your adobe, and slap some mud on the wall. 
                           D 
The roof is leaking like a strainer.  
E7                              A   D A 
There's loads of roaches in the hall. 

Chorus: 
          D                                          A 
Speedy Gonzales (Speedy Gonzales) why don't you come home? 
          D                               
Speedy Gonzales (Speedy Gonzales),how come you leave me  
     E7 
all alone? 

(Ad lib)Hey, Rosita, I have to go shopping downtown  

for my mother. 

She needs some Tortillias and Chilli Peppers. 
      A                     F#m                    D 
La la la..la la la la la la la...la la la la la la la...  
                  E7 
la la la la la la la.

E7                       A                               F#m 
Your dog is gonna have a puppy, and we're running out of Coke. 
                     D                            E7 
No enchiladas in the icebox, and the television's broke. 
                            A 
I saw some lipstick on your sweatshirt, I smelled some 
                F#m 
perfume in your ear. 
                              D        E7 
Well, if you're gonna keep on messin', don't bring your  
              A    D A 
business back here. 
      A                     F#m                    D 
La la la..la la la la la la la...la la la la la la la...  
                  E7 
la la la la la la la. 

Chorus: 
        D                                            A 
Speedy Gonzales (Speedy Gonzales) why don't you come home? 
          D                               
Speedy Gonzales (Speedy Gonzales),how come you leave me  
     E7 
all alone? 

(Ad lib)Hey, Rosita, come quick!Down at the cantina,  

they're giving green stamps with Tequila! 

ADD:
