"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 song plays while a drunk Michael Bluth approaches Lucille Austero atop her stair car and propositions her for sex to repay part of the $700,000 he owed her.
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 busFrom "At Long Last... Music and Songs from Arrested Development"
