Speedy-bi Speedy-bo, die schnellste Maus von Mexiko! (lyrics, videos)


With Germany’s Angela Merkel the new leader of the “Free World,” we thought it was time to brush up on our German, so we asked Mexico’s Fastest Mouse, Speedy Gonzales, for help. Take it away, Speedy el Maus!

Übergrosser gelber Sombrero, weisser Poncho, weisse Hose und ein rotes Halstuch. Das ist Speedy Gonzales, Die schnellste Maus von Mexiko.

Dank seiner ungeheuren Schnelligkeit überlistet er seine Hauptgegner, den tollpatschigen Kater Sylvester und die glücklose Ente Duffy Duck noch und nöcher. "Arriba! Arriba! Andale! Andale!" ruft er mit seinem übertrieben starken mexikanischen Akzent und zischt ab wie eine Rakete.

Mira los lyrics:

Mexican / Texmex food is hardly known in Germany at all, so it was a bit of a experiment and therefore I posted this here. The children liked it very much… I know this may be some youtube stuff…but this is for the people who look for some recipes for a huge amount of guests… 🙂 Any ideas for improvement and of course any insults welcome 🙂
