Our most popular live song now in convenient digital single form! Fiesta Time celebrates the sad little pleasures that get us through an otherwise difficult life.

lyrics

It's been a hard week at Hibernia Savings and Loan
I've been working my processing fingers right down to the bone
But when I remember it's Thursday, I stifle a grin
It's Mexican Night at the bar at the Holiday Inn
I call up my wife and remind her we're on for tonight
She has to work late at the port but she's ready, alright
She'll get home by 6 and she'll throw on a dress and we'll go
It's the second best thing to a visit to old Mexico

CHORUS:
And may this fiesta wash all of our worries away
The blond senoritas and cheap margaritas
And bartender shouting "Ole!"

He's wearing a tassled sombrero
And he's very flamboyantly gay
And may this fiesta wash all of our worries away

The faded pinata is hung by the Michelob sign
And the stereo's playing Herb Alpert in three-quarter time
The salsa and chips are as bueno as bueno can be
It's hard to believe you get something this good just for free
We order a pitcher and maybe a taco or two
And my wife gets a little bit tipsy as she tends to do
We'll soak up the mood for an hour or two, then we'll go
It's the second best thing to a visit to old Mexico

(CHORUS)
The napkins say something in Spanish
I have no idea what they say
And may this fiesta wash all of our worries away

And tomorrow is Friday and we'll be too tired to care
And we'll sleep in on Saturday, wake up, the day’s hardly there
Then Sunday zips by and we'll heave a deep sigh
And the week starts all over again
Until Mexican Night at the bar at the Holiday Inn

(CHORUS)
Maybe next time I'll try the fajitas
Or even the chicken mole
And may this fiesta wash all of our worries away
