I was just a boy when I first heard his name
Life, love, death, and queso were his game
I saw him on the tele and instantly I knew
Yes, I would join him and be part of his queso crew

Live your life con queso
Live your life con cheese

Many years past, and boy, had I grew
Not the young boy, oh, once new
Twenty-one and cool, and, uh, hangin' in a bar
Captain Gordo came in like a star

So I had to ask him
Captain Gordo why don't you stay
Why would you ever look away
I have always idolized you
Won't you let me join your queso crew?

Sure! You can join my queso crew
If you can keep up and do as I do

Captain Gordo why don't you play
Why don't you blow a song away
Hit it! [Alto Sax solo]

Captain Gordo take me away
Get me away
I want to stay, ha ha ha

Many years past and boy, have I grown
Playing the guitar, piano, and sax too
Taking the place of my good ol' friend Captain Gordo
And forming the band...
Con Queso

    General CommentThis song is just beautiful. Lyrically and musically.
    It is just a story of a man who had an idol as a boy and later joined and even later ended up taking his place. It's a song about the beginning of the band Con Queso.
