El Flaco And The Gordo Of It

from the bootleg copy of Down In Cuba
by the Beatles

The Old Gringo Carlos Fuentes
took a wild guess
and esplain to loosie.

Castro with his old-man shuffle
wore his army uniform with ruffles,
1956 Chevies paraded,

backfired and smoked.
Oh,the beauty of a Cuban cigar
and the screams coming from Guantanamo

like someone learning to strum the guitar.
John Lennon plays bass,maracas,bass.
The sky is gray,the clouds mayanaise.

Ringo retires and goes to bingo,
the smog lifts from LA
to reveal that we're manatees not men.
