South Of The Border (Down Mexico Way)
South of the border, down Mexico way
That's where I fell in love where stars above, came out to play.
And now as I wonder, my thoughts ever stray
South of the border, down Mexico way

She was a picture, in old spanish ways
Just for a tender while, I kissed the smile upon her face
For it was fiesta and love had its day
South of the border, down Mexico way

Aye, aye, aye, aye (aye, aye, aye, aye)
Aye, aye, aye, aye (aye, aye, aye, aye)

Then she sighed as she whispered, "Mañana."
Never dreaming that we were parting
And I lied as I whispered, "Mañana."
For our tomorrow never came

South of the border, I rode back one day
There in a veil of white by candlelight, she kneeled to pray
The mission bells told me that I shouldn't stay
South of the border, down Mexico way

Aye, aye, aye, aye (aye, aye, aye, aye)
Aye, aye, aye, aye (aye, aye, aye, aye)
Aye, aye, aye, aye (aye, aye, aye, aye)
Goodbye, goodbye
