Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

El Torito means "The little bull" and cocina means "kitchen."
In a town out of my way, a road to nowhere
One smell of fajitas, it was all I could bear
I just had no resistance, I had to eat some tonight
My tongue grew heavy couldn't help but grin
I'll have fajitas tonight!

There've been only two places
Since my leaving Carmel
I've been able to feed myself
Seven Eleven and a Taco Bell

Well I pulled in the driveway couldn't wait to be fed
Couldn't help it I just had to laugh
At what their menu said

Welcome to "El Torito Cocina"
We serve juicy steak
You can feed your face
Plenty of beef at "El Torito Cocina"
Any kind of beer, we will serve it here

I could already taste it, the aroma so strong
They were dressed in red and green corduroys and singing songs
Matching pants are suspicious what does it mean?
Do pants come with combos? Do pants come with beans?

When they showed me my table
Well what did I find?
They put me so close that I couldn't hear, mariachis behind
And still those trumpets keep blasting on my headache
Waiter comes, gives my table a quick wipe
Couldn't hear him say

Welcome to "El Torito Cocina"
We serve juicy steak
You can stuff your face
Plenty of bull at "El Torito Cocina"
Tell the other guys, it's "papas" not fries

I ordered fajitas
It came with beans and rice
Well that glass of water was none too clear and I'm being polite
Well, the chips and the salsa
Both were stale to say the least
And when they brought me my entree
It was just dripping with grease

When I finished eating, I had
To order some more
I just kept on cleaning my plate
Till my stomach was too sore
Ex-Lax on the table
Were compliments of the staff
Although it can keep things moving on
Doesn't help with the gas

You won't get gas at the Gastronomy Mexicana, but you will tend to overeat... Good song. 555

555 as well, spot on pacing, not just syllables per line, but IIRC, EXACTLY how its sounds in TOS. Great job.

No toro, this was a very good parody. But I was troubled by your 2nd verse because there is such a drop off in restaurant quality between the eating establishments in Carmel (assuming you're talking about Carmel, California - where Clint Eastwood once was mayor) and Seven Eleven or Taco Bell.

Wow, thanks everyone. John, it might help to recall what time of night Taco Bell and Seven Eleven close up.
