Lyrics

(Woo, hoo!
This is a story of a Texas boy
On his first trip to México
Play it, Flaco)

Took some time to mess around
Went down to Guadalajara town
Pretty soon I ended up in Lake Chapala

Wouldn't you know, it happened to me
Prettiest girl I ever see
Said "I'll take you home to meet my mother"

Was a fiesta in the town
People came from miles around
She said "Have her home at siete"

Then we danced 'til quarter to two
I didn't know just what to do
I can still hear her when she say

"He is a tejano
And he speak no mexicano
He is a tejano
And he speak no mexicano"

(Woo!)
(Woo, hoo!)

(I'm Texas cool)

Pretty soon it's time to go
Back to Texas and do a show
She said "Mister, please take me with you"

"Yeah, I hear it sure is great
Back there in the States
Back on your rancho in San Antonio"

Felt her brothers closin' in
They said "Gringo, better tell her when"
As I come down the stairs and down a backstreet

Barely made that boat on time
Oh man, she sure was fine
I can still hear her when she say

"He is a tejano
And he speak no mexicano
He is a tejano
And he speak no mexicano"

"He is a tejano
And no hable mexicano
He is a tejano
He no hable mexicano"

(Yeah, he's a tejano alright
Yeah, I know, listen in
Uno, dos, tres, quatro, cinco
Mucho libre, uno más
¿Qué pasó?
¿Qué pasó? I heard that before)

He speak no mexicano

(Taco brothers where are you?)

He is a tejano
