The Lyrics

A celebration of Mexican food and drink. The Santana version (actually a medley with "Gypsy Queen", by Hungarian guitarist Gabor Szabo) is more famous, but the true OS is by Fleetwood Mac, whose version includes the coda after the third verse. In case anyone doesn't know, "cerveza" is the Spanish word for "beer".
Got a chile relleno
I ate a chile relleno
Yes, I ate a chile relleno
Green pepper all stuffed with cheese
I ate a chile relleno
And I asked the waiter for more salsa, please

I got some chicken fajitas
I ate some chicken fajitas
Yes, I ate some chicken fajitas
They're messy, but tasted so great
I ate those chicken fajitas
After they were assembled on my plate

[guitar solo]

I'm gonna drink a Corona
I'm gonna drink a Corona
Yes, I'm gonna drink a Corona
Modelo, Dos Equis or Sol
Those Mexican foods and cervezas
Have me in their control

Yes, I'll order right now
Well, I'd like a taco
Yeah, I'd like a taco
And a cheese enchalada
Yeah, this food is delicious
Whoa, yeah
Oh, si, señor
Yes, I'll have a beer
Oh, I'd like one, por favor
Yo amo cerveza
In 1998, both bands were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. At the induction ceremony, Santana invited Fleetwood Mac's founder (and the writer of TOS) Peter Green to join him on stage.

You got me at the title on the home page. In fact, you got me *hungry* at the title. ;)

This parody was a gas!     (couldn't let that one "slide" by, so to speak. ;-D )       555, and FWIW, your name, and one of your Major-General parodies, came up in a discussion of technique during the composing of our parody of that OS that was posted today.
          Nice to see you again, and ¡ una cerveza mas, por favor!

Great job... now I want to go to Qdoba or a local taqueria. 5s.

TT: Do I, or my parodies, ever come up when working on parodies with FG? You will make her jealous, particularly if you show her my picture. ;)
