amigo?
Why is he standing
In your spangled leather poncho
And your elevator shoes?
Bodacious cowboys
Such as your friend
Will never be welcome here
High in the Custerdome

What'd I tell you
Back down the line?
I'll scratch your back,
You can scratch mine.
No he can't sleep on the floor.
What do you think I'm yelling for?
I'll drop him near the freeway.
Doesn't he have a home?

Lord, I know you're a special friend
But you refuse to understand.
You're a nasty schoolboy
With no place to go.
Try again tomorrow

Don't tell me he'll wait in the car.
Look at you,
Holding hands with the man from Rio.
Would you care to explain?

Who is the gaucho, amigo?
Why is he standing
In your spangled leather poncho
With the studs that match your eyes?
Bodacious cowboys
Such as your friend
Will never be welcome here
High in the Custerdome
