You can get them back or green or you can get them soft or hard
If you live in Acapulco you can get them from your yard
But if you live in Chicago you gotta get them from a store
But as long as you can get them well you just can’t ask for more
 
Avocado, avocado
Well the first thing that I’d buy if I ever hit the Lotto would be a
Pre-war Martin guitar and a ripe avocado
 
You can dice them in a salad or you can slice them on a plate
Or you can peel and eat them if you don’t mind gaining weight
Because they’ve got a lot of calories they even got a little fat
But the yuppies seem to like them so they must be where it’s at
 
Avocado, avocado
Well the first thing that I’d buy if I ever hit the Lotto would be a
Little red Miata convertible and a ripe avocado
 
If you mash them with a jalapeno, diced onions and tomater
Better throw in a little lime juice if you want to eat them later
“Cause it gets all black and gooey if you don’t eat it right away
But it still tastes good so I still eat it the next day, I’m talking ‘bout
 
Avocado, avocado
Well the first thing that I’d buy if I ever hit the Lotto would be a
Couple dozen Small Potato CDs and a ripe Avocado
 
If you take that big old seed and you put it in some water
It just might start to sprout and you could give it to your daughter
And if she put it in some soil it just might grow into a tree
And pretty soon you’ll have all the homegrown you want for free, I’m talking’bout
 
Avocado, avocado
Well the first thing that I’d buy if I ever hit the Lotto would be a
Peace of mind, peace in our time...a piece of beachfront property
And a ripe avocado
