You've been busy, baby
Watchin' too much CNN
You're such a shut-in
Andy Cooper now is your best friend

Gonna walk downtown
Gonna walk downtown
Gonna walk until those Alameda lights turn me around

You've got problems,man?
You ought to try my side of town
They get their back's up
When they find out that your skin ain't brown

Gonna walk downtown
Gonna walk downtown
Gonna walk until those Alameda lights turn me around
Gonna walk downtown

You'll get your wish, come get your kicks, you'll get your wish

You know you're crazy
When the narco-tecture's in your blood
I'd decorate it for you, baby
If I only could

Gonna walk downtown
Gonna walk downtown
Gonna walk with my head up high and my feet on the ground

Gonna walk downtown
Gonna walk downtown
C'mon walk downtown

    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.
