The Lyrics

For those of you who don't understand Spanish, here's a brief synopsis: A guy got very drunk, the cops entered the bar, he ran and tried to drive away, he was so drunk he crashed into a boulder and killed himself and two passengers, and of course when he died he went to Hell, perhaps because he even had the nerve to try and bum cigarettes off the Virgin Mary. Some dude, eh?
Es el borracho, es el borracho,
Ya no puede caminar.
Porque tenía tanta cerveza,
Y trataba manejar.

Ya murió el borracho,
El Cielo no podía entrar,
Entró infierno caliente
Fue maldito de alcohol.


Con las barbas de Carranza,
Fue a beber una tequila,
Se le perdió al sombrero
De su padre Pancho Villa.


El borracho fue a misa,
No encontraba el párroco,
Le pidio a la Virgen pura,
Cigarros para fumar.


Un borracho aterrizó,
Jóven Villa sin camisa.
Ya se fue aborrachado,
¡Porque vienen la policía!


Su coche chocó con piedra,
Y él murió aborrachado.
Mató dos mujeres in el accidente,
¡Ya tiene calor en el infierno!

I'm somewhat bilingual, so of course I got all this humor. Muy bien!
