“The Whole Enchilada”

To be honest, I wrote this song off when I first heard it because I thought it was a bit cheesy. The use of the phrase “the whole enchilada” and the way the chorus repeats and rhymes just really didn’t hold my interest. Today, for some reason, I really heard the lyrics and appreciated the tune in a completely different way.

“You’ve been wishing all of your life
For a woman that’ll love you
Tell the truth and treat you right
And you’ve been alone crying yourself to sleep
Now you got a girl who can rock your world
Put a smile on your face and a love you’re gonna keep
This is the beginning are you ready to learn
To love somebody for a lifetime
Wake up it’s your turn.

So tell me now that you got a whole enchilada
Now that you gotta,
What you’re gonna do, what you gonna do
Are you gonna be any better
Than the man you had to be to get her
Oh now that you gotta
What you gonna do, what you gonna do, what you gonna do.”
