Mi Vida Loca
In Loving Memory Of Johnny Tapia

Everybody Stumbles, And Everybody Falls,
Some Of Us Have Nothing, While Others Have It All
Some Live In The Shadows, While Some Live In The Light
What Matters In This Crazy Life, Is How You Fought The Fight

Johnny Lived His “Vida Loca” Best Way He Knew How
Giving Every Ounce He Had, Before He'd Take A Bow
Finding Good In Everyone, Though Sometimes Hard To Find
It's The Legacy He Yearned For, It's What He Leaves Behind

His Battered Face Could Not Conceal, The Pain He Held Inside
He Tried To Smile As If To Say, Not Me, I Never Cried
Hands Of Steel That Thundered, With Power At Every Blow
For His Beloved “Burque”, The City He Loved So

Pride Ran Through His Every Vein, More Prominent Than Blood
Righteous, Strong, And Valiant, Like A Wild Stallion Stud
Life Could Not Contain Him, For He Was Like No Other
A Husband And A Father, To Everyone A Brother

Cast The First Stone, If You Must, Though First Be Without Sin
But Jesus Who So Loved Him Said, “Mi Hito, Come On In”
And If You Must Pass Judgment, First Walk In His Shoes
Then Let Him Rest, Everyone Knows, That He Has Paid His Dues

A Peace Life Could Not Give To Him, Became His Very Own
Beyond Life's Earthly Burdens, With His Mama, At God's Throne
In A Place Where There's No Title, No Belt, No Final Round
Where His Spirit Found Eternal Peace, He Lies On Sacred Ground
