"Acapulco" is an unreleased Weezer song. The song was originally known as "Puerta Vallarta."

Overview

"Acapulco" was first recorded as an acoustic instrumental during the DC Demos. It was later resurrected, with vocals, during the Maladroit sessions, and, when it failed to make the album's cut, again in 2002 as an Album 5 Demo. The DC Demo, Maladroit Demo, and Album 5 Demo versions were all released as mp3s at the band's official site, but the song remains unreleased officially. The Catalog of Riffs entry for the song lists is as having been written on March 31, 2001, with the accompanying schedule note: "WENT TO puerta vallarta with kelley".

Lyrics

The second Maladroit demo is missing the third verse and the backing vocals. The Early Album 5 demo only uses the first verse for all of the verses.

Beautiful girl
What're you doing?

All of the times
That I was there

You came down
In my arms
Told me things
No one knew
(Beautiful girl) Now you're gone

All of the times
That I was there

You came down
In my arms
Told me things
No one knew
(Beautiful girl) Now you're gone
