playing with rhymes and rhythm. It's just a story, really.


Mexican Night

I drank tequila and ate tortillas
Bit the lime, kept the time
Played maracas, gulped Coronas
Twirled my skirt, love to flirt
His raven hair, put a rose there
Mexican night, I missed my flight
Hangover hell, I don't feel well
What's your name? I'm so ashamed
In your bed, I cover my head
I have a chill. I forgot my pill
Nine months pass, a bambino with sass
He plays the maracas just like his papa's.
Mexican night, it turned out alright!

Ole'

Dear Kathy,

This brief encounter love song ought to be set to music and recorded by Steve Martin! It's an uplifting verse, if you know what I mean.

See you on the road to Acapulco, my amigo!


Adios, Chris X

What an entertaining tale!
I'm glad it turned out so well
You got a bambino
Just don't go to Reno
Or you might end up in jail.
