  • Taco...grande Taco...grande

    Yo quero chimichangas y chile colorado
    Yo tengo el dinero para un steak picado
    Las flautas y tamale, siempre muy bueno
    Y el chile relleno

    You see, I just gotta have a tostada, carne asada
    That's right, I want the whole enchilada
    My only addiction has to do with flour tortilla
    I need a quesadilla

    I love to stuff my face with tacos al carbon
    With my friends or when I'm all alone
    Yo tengo mucho hambre y ahora lo quiero
    Un burrito ranchero

    So give me something spicy and hot now
    Break out the menu, what you go, now?
    Oh, would you tell the waiter I'd like to have
    Sour cream on the side
    You better make sure the beans are refried

    Taco...grande Taco...grande

    Well there's not a taco big enough for a man like me
    That's why I order two or three
    Let me give you a tip, just try a nacho chip
    It's really good with bean dip

    I eat uno, dos, tres, quatro burritos
    Pretty soon I can't fit in my Speedos
    Well, I hope they feed us lots of chicken fajitas
    And a pitcher of margaritas

    Well the combination plates al come with beans and rice
    The taquitos here are very nice
    Now I'm down on my knees, we need some extra
    Tomatoes and cheese
    And could you make that separate checks, please?

    Taco...grande Taco...grande

    Well the food is coming I can hardly wait
    Now watch your fingers, careful hot plate!
    What you think you're doing with my chili con queso?
    Well, if you want some, just say so

    Oh boy, pico de gallo
    They sure don't make it like this in Ohio
    No gracias, yo quiero jalapenos, nada mas
    You can toss away the hot sauce

    Donde estan los nachos? Holy frijole!
    You better get me a bowl of guacamole
    Y usted, Eugene? Wh's your face turning green?
    Don't you like pinto beans?

    You want some more cinnamon crispas?
    If you don't, hasta la vista
    Just take the rest home in a doggie bag if you wanna
    You can finish it manana

    Well, it's been a pleasure, I can't eat no more
    Senor, la cuenta, por favor
    If you ain't ever tried real Mexican cooking, well, you
    Just don't drink the water
