"The Cockroach" is a song that appears in Arrested Development . It was written by composer David Schwartz and Gabriel Mann. It appears on At Long Last... Music and Songs from Arrested Development. It is an English language parody of the traditional Mexican song "La Cucaracha".

The cockroach, the cockroach

I thought you said you cleaned in here

But when you come back on the 6th of May

Your job, she maybe is no here

The cockroach, the cockroach

My maid I can no longer trust

When she comes in late on the very next day

I don’t believe she missed the bus
