I left my wallet in el segundo

Text písně I left my wallet in el segundo

My mother went away for a month-long trip
Her and some friends on an ocean-liner ship
She made a big mistake by leaving me home
I had to roam so then picked up the phone
Dialed Ali up to see what was going down
Told him I pick him up, so we could drive around
Took the Dodge Dart, a `74
My mother left a yard but I needed one more
Shaheed had me covered with a hundred green backs
So we left Brooklyn and we made big tracks
Drove down the Belt, got on the Conduit
Came to a toll, we paid and went through it
Had no destination, we was on a quest
Ali laid in the back so he could get rest
Drove down the road for two-days-and-a-half
The sun had just risen on a dusty path
Just then a figure had caught my eye
A man with a sombrero who was four feet high
I pulled over to ask where we was at
His index finger he tipped up his hat
''El Segundo,'' he said, ''my name is Pedro.
If you need directions, I tell you pronto''
Needed no civilization, some sort of reservation
He said a mile south, there´s a fast food station
Thanks, senor, as I started the motor
Ali said, ''Damn, Tip, why you drive so far for?''
When he said ''why?'' I said we gotta go
Cause I left my wallet in El Segundo


I left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
I gotta get it I got got to get it
I left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Come on, let´s go


Anyway, a gas station we passed, we got gas
And went on to get grub, there was a nice little pub
In the middle of nowhere, anywhere would have been better
I ordered Enchladas and I ate `em
Ali had the fruit punch
When we finished we thought for ways toget back
I had a hunch
Ali said, '' Pay for lunch'', so I did it
Pulled out the wallet and I saw this wicked beautiful Lady
She was a waitress there
Put the wallet down and stared and stared
To put me back into reality, here´s Shaheed:
''Yo,Tip, man, got what you need?''
I checked for keys and started to step
What do you know, my wallet I forget.


I left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
I gotta get it, I got got to get it
I left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Come on, let´s go


Lord, have mercy, the heat got hotter
Ali starts to curse me
I feel bad but he makes me feel badder
Chit-chit-chatter, car starts to scatter
Breaking on out, we was Northeast bound
Jettin´ on down at the speed of sound
Three days coming, three more going
We get back and there was no slack
490 Madison, we`re here, Sha
He said,''All right, Tip, see you tomorrow''
Thinking about the past week, the last week
Hands go in my pocket, I can´t speak
Hopped in the car and torpe`ed to the shack
Of Shaheed, ''We gotta go back!''
When he said,''why?'', I said we gotta go
Cause I left my wallet in El Segundo


I left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
I gotta get it, I got got to get it
I left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Come on, let´s go !
