    Lyrics

    This is a song
    About best friends.

    John Roy
    Was a boy I knew
    Since he was three
    And I was two
    Grew up two little houses
    Down from me.

    The only two bad apples
    On our family tree
    Kind of ripened and rotted
    In our puberty
    Two kindred spirits bound by destiny.

    Well now, I was smart
    But I lacked ambition
    Johnny was wild
    With no inhibition
    Was about like mixin'
    Fire and gasoline.
    And he'd say

    Hey, Romeo
    Let's go down to Mexico
    Chase senoritas
    Drink ourselves silly
    Show them Mexican girls
    A couple real hillbillies.

    Got a pocket full of cash
    And that old Ford truck
    A fuzzy cat hangin'
    From the mirror for luck
    Said, don't you know
    All those little
    Brown-eyed girls
    Want playboys of the southwestern world.

    Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

    Long around
    Our eighteenth year
    We found two airplane tickets
    The hell out of here
    Got scholarships
    To some small town
    School in Texas.

    Learned to drink Sangrias
    'Til the dawns early light
    Eat eggs Rancheros
    And throw up all night
    And tell those daddy's girls
    We were majoring in a rodeo.

    Ah, but my
    Favorite memory
    At school that fall
    Was the night John Roy
    Came runnin' down the hall
    Wearin nothin'
    But cowboy boots
    And a big sombrero.
    And he was yellin'

    Hey, Romeo
    Let's go down to Mexico
    Chase senoritas
    Drink ourselves silly
    Show them Mexican girls
    A couple of real hillbillies.

    Got a pocket full of cash
    And that old Ford truck
    A fuzzy cat hangin'
    From the mirror for luck
    Said don't you know
    All those little
    Brown-eyed girls
    Want playboys of the southwestern world.

    Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

    And I said
    We had a little
    Change in plans
    Like when Paul McCartney
    Got busted in Japan
    And I said
    We got waylayed
    When we set foot
    On Mexican soil
    See the boarder guard
    With the Fu Manchu mustache
    Kind of stumbled on John's
    Pocket full of American cash.
    He said
    Doin' a little funny business
    In Mexico, Amigo?

    But all I could think about
    Was savin' my own tail
    When he mentioned ten years
    In a Mexican jail
    So I pointed to John Roy and said
    It's all his now please let me go
    I mean, it was your idea genius
    I was just layin' there in bed.
    When you said

    Hey, Romeo
    Let's go down to Mexico
    Chase senoritas
    Drink ourselves silly
    Show them Mexican girls
    A couple of real hillbillies.

    Got a pocket full of cash
    And that old Ford truck
    A fuzzy cat hangin'
    From the mirror for luck
    Said don't you know
    All those little
    Brown-eyed girls
    Want playboys of the south
    We're playboys from the southwestern world.

    Ah, we're still best friends
    Temporary cell-mates

    Hey Amego!
