Mexican Rap

 

 

I’m making a fajita

There’s no neater treat to eat

Don’t forget to get  some lettuce

And some juicy strips of meat

Pack the cheese and pinto beans

With expertise, then start to dream

When the sauce resembles embers

Please remember sour cream

And I say

 

Yo! Fajita!

Yo! Yo! Fajita-jita!

Yo! Fajita!

Yo! Yo! Fajita-jita!

 

1, 2, 3, 4

 

I’m making enchiladas

With fresh peppers by the bunch

Get some nachos and gazpacho

It’s a macho kind of lunch

I’ve a yearning for some burning

I’m discerning with my spice

And the chicken has me lickin’

As it sits upon the rice

And I say

 

En! Chilada!

En! En! Chilada-lada!

En! Chilada!

En! En! Chilada-lada!

 

1, 2, 3, 4

 

I’m making a burrito

Let me teach you how to scoff

Roll it tight with all your might

And then the night just might take off

Get your mother and your brother

And your uncle and your aunt

Plant them all across the table

And then listen as they chant

And they say

 

Yo! Burrito!

Yo! Yo! Burrito-rito!

Yo! Burrito!

Yo! Yo! Burrito-rito!

 

En! Chilada!

En! En! Chilada-lada!

En! Chilada!

En! En! Chilada-lada!

 

Yo! Fajita!

Yo! Yo! Fajita-jita!

Yo! Fajita!

Yo! Yo! Fajita-jita!

 

1, 2, 3, 4

 

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
