Verse
Put on your shoes, put on your dress, my segnorina
To Cacciatori’s we will go this sunny day
Capicola, Italian sausage, Pallomilla,
Mortadella and a bottle of rose,

Let’s go out and get a cup of Cuban coffee
El Gallo de Oro, they fry AND scramble eggs
WesTampa sangwich shop calls me like the sirens
Caldo Gallego and old men with bad toupees

Chours
Life can be such a joy in WesTampa
If you like the smell of old men and cigars
Life can be such a joy in west Tampa
And when you die Boza will drive you in his car

Verse
Cucufato, peccadillo and bichito
Help sew the fabric of what now is Tampa Bay
El Gran Cangrejo and his band of canjrejitos
With cigar beacons, they help light our smoky way

Now Venezuelans, Columbians and Chinitos
Have found their way right here to Tampa Bay
North of Hillsborough on Armenia is their Mecca
Fried Pork Intestines and rancid quail eggs.

Chours
Life can be such a joy in WesTampa
If you like the smell of old men and cigars
Life can be such a joy in west Tampa
And when you die Boza will drive you in his car

It’s Long, and Black and Elegantly appointed
