(intro mandolin style fast Latin beat)

A-little Pedro
(He's got to fight the bull)
A-little Pedro
(He's got to fight the bull)
A-little Pedro
(He's got to fight the bull)
To win the governor's daughter

Way down in-a Mexicali
There was a cat named Little Pedro
He got the red sombrero, has a silly grin
A-everywhere he goes

A-there's a bull, in the old bullpen
Just a-snortin' an a-kickin' all day
He knocked down twenty-two houses
Killed twenty-one men
And they stood up and said, H'Ole'

A-little Pedro
(He's got to fight the bull)
A-little Pedro
(He's got to fight the bull)
A-little Pedro
(He's got to fight the bull)
Win the governor's daughter

Bull charged in with his eyes a-flamin'
To the center of the ring (yeah)
In stormed Pedro with a silly grin
A-like he could not kill a thing

Took a short step forward
And he's turnin' around
He saw the bull comin' at his feet
He grabbed the red sombrero
And his bag he packed
And he headed for the nearest backstreet

(wailin' sax! & instrumental)

The bull couldn't stop
As he started to charge
He hit the hard concrete wall
Said that there was a smile on his face
And that was the end of it all

A-little Pedro
(He's done a-killed the bull)
A-little Pedro
(He's done a-killed his bull)
A-little Pedro
(He's done killed the bull)
He win the governor's daughter

(instrumental)

Win the governor's daughter

(instrumental)

Win the governor's daughter.
