Bek Lyrics

Qué Onda Guero

(From the Guero Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen, The Dust Brothers]

Qué onda Jose?
Qué onda Jose?

See the vegetable man
In the vegetable van
With the horn that's honking
Like a mariachi band
In the middle of the street
People gather around

Put a dollar-dollar-dollar in the can
Ay wey, qué onda güero?
TJ cowboys hang around
Sleeping on the side walk
With a Burger King crown
Never wake them up
Mas cerveza
Till the rooster crows
Vatos vergallos

Qué onda güero?
Qué onda güero?
Qué onda güero?
Qué onda güero?

Mano blancos roll with crowbars
Sing rancheras on cheap guitars
Abuelitas with plastic bags
Walking to church with their Spanish candles
Dirty borracho says "qué putas?
Andelay Joto, your popsicles melting"
Run better run, da doo run run
In the midnight sun

Güero where you going?
Qué onda güero?
Güero where you going?
Qué onda güero?

Rampart boys with loaded rifles
Guatemalan soccer ball instant replays
Mango ladies, vendedoras at a bus stop
Sing a banda macho chorus

Qué onda güero?
A donde vayas?
Qué onda güero?
A donde vayas?
