Acapulco Goldie - Poem by Shel Silverstein (Shel Silverstein)

Make This Poetry Your Favorite

She was dancin' when I seen her, in a Mexican cantina In a neighborhood they call 'La Zona Roja'. She had a child's smile, but she told me in a while It would take a lot of gold to get to know her. Acapulco Goldie, donde did you go. You said you'd always hold me But you run away with me Acapulco Gold. I knew there's no one cuter, then she said she was a puta. I said, 'What does puta mean?' And she told me...oh no... Then we went to meet a dealer, we smoke and drink tequila. Then the lights went out and I guess that's when she rolled me. Just like Acapulco Goldie, por que did you go. You said you'd always hold me. But you vamos away with me Acapulco Gold. Ya ya, you run away with me Acapulco Gold. Shel Silverstein
