La Costa’s gone

That’s a muy bueno thing

Where the men danced like women

there’s a new song to sing

Blues … and Mexican food

got a crazy new name

it’s Gringo de Loco, dude

Big chile relleno

served like a hot omelet

drowning in red sauce

but not dripping wet

Blues … and Mexican food

I’ve been there for lunch

not just one time but two

I ate chile verde

with people from Russell

I liked tangy green sauce

but some pork chewed like muscle

Blues … and Mexican food

Bean dip and salsa

and a 12-bar groove

Cheese, chicken and broth

I dug that tortilla soup

And enchilada mole?

Too much cinnamon

Cold corn tortillas

Tender chicken within

Blues … and Mexican food

I dig the clean bathrooms

and the new painted mood

But my margarita

didn’t quite please

It tasted like limeade

from Cash & Carry
