Chili Con Queso (lyrics)

(N. Herbst, J. Herbst, L. Poulin, F.W. Piazza
Featuring Billy Payne on Keyboards)
Sat in a diner one day all alone
when I saw you there with your chili con queso
all grown up and I should have known better
than to leave in the rain with a stranger in leather

Never forget how you changed my life
and I’ll never be the same
chili con queso

Drove to the border, he’s a motor-psycho
found it odd, he’s loco con queso
Traded me in for a couple of pesos
guess he needed more chili con queso

Never forget how you changed my life
and I’ll never be the same
chili con queso
I exclaim I might never be the same

mister guy mister man mister chili con queso
oh no, oh no

A hostage of libido
held by señor chili con queso

abducted, obstructed
screwed over the border
nothing but tequilla
and chili con queso

I tried to get out on a secret railroad
running away from chili con queso
Far from my home in Southern Florida
follow the scent of chili con queso

Never forget how you changed my life
and I’ll never be the same
chili con queso
I exclaim I might never be the same
mister guy mister man mister chili con queso
oh no, oh no
