[honey singsŠ]
What DID I DO?? What DID I SAY?
ITS nothing we all knewŠŠŠ.. another better DAY!
What did I find? I left my world behindŠŠ..
I left my world to explore,
The comfort of his arms and I want more

[gonzo sings]
What did I do? How can I find the way?
To bring you happiness, all the night and half the dayŠ.
Its nothing for me to say nice things
Its crazy for you to wear my funny rings
Its all of the timeŠŠŠ I think about you being mineŠŠ.

[together]
Itıs a beautiful thing, to exchange our wedding rings
To go on together dreaming of our romantic bliss
We could go to sleep with a kissŠŠ

[honey sings]
I thinks heıs so fineŠŠŠŠ. And now at last he is mine
[gonzo sings]
Sheıll be there for all time
[together]
Weıll be so happy all of the time
All of the time, all of the time, all of the timeŠŠŠ

SONG TWO: Will I live with these people??

Words & Music by AA REYES

[gonzo sings]
These are my freaks and these are my felons
My aunts and uncles eating seedless melon
These are the great folks I grew to love
These are the marvels I always think of

[honey sings]
Those are your uncles, your aunts, and your geeksŠ..
Those are the peoples my mother calls freeks
Those are the folks you grew to enjoy
Those are the people who brought your toys

[gonzo sings]
Those are the ones I knew when I was little,
My uncle screaming songs and my auntıs on the fiddle,
My mother in the alley looking for a cat
If its not entertainment then I donıt know whatŠ..

[honey sings]
You have your life and now Iım your wife
Can you tell me its all right? Can you tell me we wonıt fight
CAN YOU TELL MEŠŠŠŠŠŠŠŠ..Iıll be like them
CAN YOU TELL MEŠŠŠŠŠŠ.youıll love me always, now and thenŠ
But will I, will I, will I STAND their screaming
Their heartaches and their dreaming ŠŠ
Will I see past their crimes to their well meaning intentionsŠŠ

[together]
We will be
Everything to you and me
We shall come
The thing of two becoming oneŠŠ

[gonzo sings]
Oye crazy girl!
Your brain thinks over thereŠ..
Your hands talk more than they do
Your eyes say more than they knew
I wonder what there is, what you want
My life hangs rough in the house that you hauntŠŠ

I gotta know, mamacita, what you know?
I gotta go with my dogs to the show
I gotta hang out with my cousins in the farm
I gotta have a chill, thereıs really no harm

My little one, this is the time for us
My pretty one, you should get on the bus
Its getting late and we really must get to go
Waiting here weıll soon see December snowŠ.. in julyŠŠ

I gotta know, mamacita, what you know?
I gotta go with my dogs to the show
I gotta hang out with my cousins in the farm
I gotta have a chill, thereıs really no harm

My beautiful bride I had to wait
For the love of the one Iıd want as my fate
I have you here and I wonıt let go
And Iıll be back after the showŠ.

And when I return Iıll be there for you,
We can sit under moonlight and talk til two,
You can tell me your day and how youıve been
Iıll listen and enjoy you with my ginŠŠ

But MAMACITA watcha doinŠ..
Did you fall out of love with the man yer screwin?
Did you not tell me weıd here today?
Have a party now in another way?

[sung by GONZO]
Sour Oranges and roasted Pig
Holes I love and holes I dig,
Up in the morn and go to the yard
I really think this work is too hard

But I have frijolitoes and lot of tomatoes
I have jeans and sneakers and you
I have pimples, teeth, and a tube of glue
I have lifeŠŠŠsuch a wonderful life

I have smokes and powders and pills
I have cars and money and thrills
I have the women runninı the still
I have my toes down below my noseŠ.

I have sox and I have shoes
I have a record player for the ten inch blues
I have good fortune to have you, my wife
I have my wonderful wonderful lifeŠŠ.
I have my wonderful wonderful lifeŠŠ.
I have my wonderful wonderful lifeŠŠ.

[sung by honey]

I see how you do the things the way you do
I smell how you make the things you make
I find everything so totally true
Its so grand and its so fakeŠŠŠ

But Iıll show you how I stand
How I sit and how I feel
Iıll show you how I walk
Toe to heelŠŠ
Iıll show you how to eat and talk
Iıll show you how to park and walk tall.

I see how your mother cooks the way she does
I see how your grandfather showed you how he was
I see how your family tree is turned to your side
But I see you choose me to be your bride

AND Iıll show you how you really need to love
Iıll show you how to deal and to fly like a dive
Iıll show you how to spend and talk a lot
Iıll show you how to plant your seeds in my potŠŠ.

Iıll show you just a better way to spend your day,
Iıll show you so much better than to eat your hay,
Iıll show you to try to be your best
And Iıll show you how laugh in love and in jestŠ.in jestŠŠ
OH what a pest!

[sung by honey]

Iım now somebodyıs wife
All pretty and neat
New shoes upon my feet
A new way to see things
Many new diamonds and rings
Another mother
NOT just like the other
Another Sister
Sheıs creepy dressed like a mister
Another cousin
Drive me up a wall
Another crazy uncle and aunt
They never stop to call
Except for money, the honey, the food and the partiesŠ..
The refrigerator filled to nice and hardyŠ..

Itıs a new life
Iım now someoneıs wifeŠ.
Its now new stress and worries, dilemmas and tragedies
Something needs to be done
This war is over before its won

What have I done?
Who have I become?
I could on wishing
But Iım now stuck in a kitchen
With two aunts, an uncle, and his grandmother too
His cousins and the baby cries boo-hooŠ..

[sung by Gonzo]
What have I done?
Who have I become?
I dream of a beach far off a hill
A fountain of sunshine near my moonshine still,
But now I have a lady, someday we may add a babyŠŠor twoŠŠ

[both]
Who are we now?
What dreams can we make real?
[gonzo:] Your life is mine,
[honey] My life is fineŠ.
[gonzo] Your dreams will come true
[honey] Iıll hang around with youŠ.. and THAT family!
[gonzo] its not such a catastropheŠ.. they just stick around
