    I put my gas, I drove to town,
    I parked my ride, then I got down.
    They told me something, I kicked their ass.
    Got ten more dollars, put some more gas.

    (oye, vez)

    I landed out, driving all around.
    Psss mi chavita, was all like down.
    We rode all over, but not too fast.
    Got down again, to put some gas.

    (Orale pues) --Modulate-

    Some days moreless, a total loss.
    I'm just peeling it o'er here, aqui no mas.
    If I had some money, I'd have some class.
    Wouldn't stop so much, to put some gas.

    (L) Orale vato. (R) Orale pues.
    What it all means, pss you'll have to guess.
    But it's a big state, so if you want to pass, (show NM map)
    You'll have to stop, to put some gas.
