Well, I know this city
Yeah, I know these streets
I can even tell you
Where Esteban Jordan packs his heat
I ain't no Cantinflas, baby
I ain't no matador
I'm a genuine, Mexified, San Antonio rock 'n' roll star

Oh, the wind do blow
'Round the bishop's gate
Out on Highway 16
With your bootleg tapes
I ain't no matador
I'm a genuine, Mexified, San Antonio rock 'n' roll star

When the fruit goes bad
Oh, don't be sad
When the truth goes bad

In the summertime
Oh, you best drive slow
What the policeman say
Just say, 'I don't know.'
I ain't no matador
I'm a genuine, Mexified, San Antonio rock 'n' roll star

Yeah, I know this city
Yeah, I know these streets
I can even tell you
Donde Esteban Jordan packs his heat
I ain't no Cantinflas, baby
I ain't no matador
I'm a genuine, Mexified, San Antonio rock 'n' roll star

    Known as the Tex-Mex Beatles, the Chicano garage rockers have garnered flattering comparisons to the Fab Four, Bob Dylan, the Who, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Warren Zevon. The Krayolas have been profiled in Texas Monthly, The Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, Paste, Pollstar, Rolling Stone, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” “Alt-Latino” and MTV, and are regulars on SIRIUS XM “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” Dave Marsh’s “Kick Out the Jams,” KUTX and Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Roots and Branches of Americana.”

    In 2014, the Krayolas were inducted into the Texas Music Office’s South Texas Music Walk of Fame.
