Around 4:42, Speedy is heard singing a spoof of the Mexican folk song "La cucaracha" with nonsense words in odd Spanish which could be transcribed as: "La cucaracha, la cucaracha, ya no puede caminar. ¿Por qué no Fanta? ¿Por qué no tiene marijuana par fumar?" This would seem to mean: "The cockroach, the cockroach, she can't walk any more. Why not Fanta? Why doesn't she have marijuana to smoke?" The Fanta reference is the most puzzling part of the verse. But the mention of marijuana is clear, and how the artists got it past the censors would probably be a good story in itself. See more
