when i was a manager
for h.e.b. (a  texas
grocery store chain) i
was often asked to
lend my "creativity" to
various meetings and
presentations...

i contributed music and
songs to "entertain the
troops" on a few
occasions....

this was one of the
crazier ideas i came up
with...

thank you, thank you very much

back in the early 50's i spent a lot of time touring texas in a car
with the boys...there were a lot of long days driving from town
to town and a boy could get mighty hungry driving all day and  
night to the next gig...one thing i could always count on was
having an h.e.b. in every town where we could get some good
food at low prices...during that time i developed quite an
appetite which i still have today...many of the songs i recorded
later  on in my career were inspired by those trips to h.e.b. and
i'd like to share a few of those with you right now...

in the burrito
on a cold and gray texas morning
a hunger hit me without warning for a burrito
(a burrito)
and my hunger burned

i wanted hot and tangy sauce with it
sour cream and onion dip and some doritos
(some doritos)
and my hunger cried

later that night in desperation my hunger couldn't wait
so i grabbed a gun and i stole a car
drove to h.e.b. and bought some candy bars
and my hunger died

so on a cold and gray texas morning
if a hunger hits you without warning
where do you go (where do you go)
...to h.e.b

jailhouse shop

my favorite peanut butter's down on aisle two
bananas in the produce section grab a few
take me to the pharmacy to cure my blues
so many snack and goodies don't know what to do

but shop
everybody let's shop
everybody on the whole damn block
go to h.e.b. and shop
i said shop baby shop...shop baby shop
yeah shop baby shop... yeah shop baby shop
everybody on the whole damn block
go to h.e.b. and shop

gummi bears

i go to h.e.b.
to buy my yummy gummi bears
the taste is oh so sweet
nothin' can compare
i go to h.e.b.
to buy my gummi bears

i don't want no other love
h.e.b. it's you i'm dreamin' of

i can't help shopping at h.e.b.

my eyes light up
from all the things i see
i can't help shopping at h.e.b.

goodies everywhere
i just stop and stare
so much to eat so little time to spare

aisles and aisles
of everything i need
i can't help shopping at h.e.b.
i can't help shopping at h.e.b.
