GUADALUPE

Guadalupe, A small town but always home to me,

A place where we take pride, in everything we say or do.

Where your not treated like a stranger, more like family,

They say, “ Home is where the heart is”, a statement so very true,

   th  GUADALUPE ST PRIDE

Nicknamed “ Guada”, or “ Big G”, known to locals in our town,

Businesses like“Snappy’s”,“ El Ray liquor”, are gone but not forgotten,

“Masatani’s Market”, a local favorite , and best meat market around,

Where vegetables are sold fresh daily long before they end up rotten.

Guadalupe’s main drag, is made up of old buildings, that still stand today,

Some have been remodeled, while others hold strong with bricks and clay,

Our old school and city hall , might just be the oldest building in town,

With it’s old mission style look, and best tourist site all around.

The Far Western Tavern, and Basque House, famous, resturants back in the day,

People from all around, would come and eat, and sometimes enjoy a local parade,

Still there were others like, “Nardo’s, The Guadalupe Resturant, and Simpatia Cafe,”

Let us not forget “ The Fish market,” or “Bud Wongs” that have also past away.

To all guadalupe’s veteran’s, who served our country with pride and made us proud,

Who showed the enemy no fear or surrender, and showed them what americans are about,

Just wanted to say, “ Thank you, for my freedom” from the bottom of my heart,

I salute and respect each and everyone of you, with a gratitude that will never part.

Gualalupe “homeboys” have a reputation for never backing down from any fight,

We take pride in our “familia” and town, and will defend them day or night,

Most latino’s are just this way, not sure if that is a good thing or bad,

Some have died for this, that is just really very sad.

Guadalupe has even been featured in movies, in case u didn’t know,

“The Odd Couple 2”, “Cowboy Up” were some to name a few,

With some great attractions, like the old “ Royal Theater” show.

We were even in a “SuperBowl” commercial, now that is pretty cool.

So come on down and visit this town, with all it’s lovely views,

With all it’s surroundings, places to eat, even a beach to kick off your shoes,

Where your treated like family, not like a stranger, why not take a ride,

Proud to say, love this town and am part of this “ Guadalupe pride”
