- Hispanic phrase meaning "boy" and the word used in the title of the
sitcom CHICO AND THE MAN/NBC/1974-78.
Set in the barrio of East Los Angeles the
series told the story of a hip young Chicano mechanic Chico Rodriguez (Freddie Prinze) and a cranky, widower Ed Brown (Jack Albertson) who owned the garage
where Chico worked. Chico's catchphrase was "Eez's not my job!"
Theme Song Lyrics
Chico, don't be discouraged,
The Man he ain't so hard to understand.
Chico, if you try now,
I know that you can lend a helping hand.
Because there's good in everyone
And a new day has begun
You can see the morning sun if you try.
And I know, things will be better
Oh yes they will for Chico and the Man
Yes they will for Chico and the Man.
