The Lyrics

Mexican Drug Kingpin Is Captured....Joaquín Guzmán Loera, “El Chapo,” one of Mexico’s top drug bosses and a Forbes list billionaire since 2009, was captured today, (February 22nd, 2014) in a Mexican resort after a 13-year manhunt.
Out in the beach resort town of Mazatlan
Soldiers and officers pull off a raid
There in a plush condominium tower
Freedom for drug lord, El Chapo, will fade

Thirteen long years before, busted from prison
Using a laundry cart, this cad of crime
But let us flip now, the calendar, backwards
Tell you of Chapo and his early time

El lived a poor..Mexican Life
Raised on a ranch, records say--a--a-ay
And here it ceases,
Connection to Jesus,
Real name, Joaquin Guzman - was born Christmas Day

Child-hood a-buse...
Pro-tecting his siblngs, takes beatings from father
Mother's support eases moments of mean
The school's a far distance, taught by traveling teachers
He runs his own pot farm at just age fifteen..

Disowned by father, moves in with his grandpa
Harbors hostilities - none disappear
Then uncle Pedro, a pioneer drug lord
Shows him the ropes that will launch his career

Still in his twenties, El Chapo heads out,
Leaving Badiraguato behind-i-i-ind
El makes his mark well, impresses drug cartels
Like Hector Palma's and more of his kind

Up..through..the..ranks, he'll
Boss operations of drugs on the border,
Smuggled to U.S. from old Mexico...

Violent and evil, controls with a whip hand
Teaches his henchmen he means what is said
Takes no excuses for lateness of shipments,
Such perpetrators are shot in the head..

Chauffeurs for Felix Gallardo, drug czar
Promotions come very fast.
Flashing through seventies, in eighties, we find him
Heading his own large drug cartel at last..,
Ruthless and clever, and cunning, El Chapo
Snakes competition by making blood flow
Ambition's strong, and it pushes him onward
Sky seems the limit for where he will go..

Eludes a whack plan in Guadalajara,
In Tijuana, he sidesteps more lead
Twenty crack gunmen botch orders to kill him,
They clumsily snuff an Archbishop instead

Flees Guatamala, but then luck runs out,
Arrested, in Mexico, tried
After a decade of lock-up in prison
Starts getting weary, to see the outside
The tale has been told, how he's risen and fallen
Evil can only exist for so long
Faces harsh destiny thirteen years later
Thrown back in prison - to pay for his wrong

Good days are no more for drug lord, El Chapo
Judge won't be nice when he goes into court
Ironic end for drug lord, Joaquin Guzman,
Nickname means Shorty, and he came up short

Nickname means Shorty, and..he..came..up..short
