"Crackity Jones" as written by and Charles Thompson....
Jose Jones
Told me alone his story
He got friends like Pacro Picopiedra
La Muneca
He receives on his set

Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones

Please forgive me
Jose Jones
You need these walls
For your own
I'm movin' out of this hospedaje
I'm afraid you'll cut me boy

Thirty miles by
Hundred miles by stinkin' island
Por goofiar an' cruisin' automobile
Chasin' voices he receives in his head

Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones
Crack, crack, Crackity Jones

    General CommentThe island referenced is Puerto Rico, by the way. 30 miles by 100 miles refers to the length and width of the island.

    General CommentPaco Picopiedra is Pixie-spanglish for the Fred Flintsone "he receives on his set". What about La Muneca (the wrist)? Why reference "wrist"?

    And what the heck is "por goofiar"

    General CommentOccasionally he'll get his spanish wrong...paco picopiedra is incorrect. He's referring to fred flintstone, and he is PEDRO picopiedra.
