Mexican Joe

This song is by Faron Young and appears on the album Sings the Best of Jim Reeves (1966).

This song is a cover of "Mexican Joe" by Jim Reeves.
South of the border hey, I know a lad
He's got more fun than anybody's had
Don't got no worry, don't got no dough
Everybody's a wondering 'bout Mexican Joe.

In old Mexico they call him the Rhumba King
Leads all the women around on a string
When they go out they get a million thrills
But the lovely senoritas wind up with the bills.

Dancin', romancin', always on the go
Sun shining down on Mexican Joe.

He makes the night spots all along the bay
People want to see him when he comes their way
He spreads so much joy everywhere he goes
Everybody shouts Viva la Mexican Joe.

He likes to gamble at poker he's an ace
He's always lucky with the cardsthat's got a face
At winnin' the money he is sure a whiz
But when they win they don't collect
'Cause they don't know where he is.

Dancin', romancin', always on the go
Sun shining down on Mexican Joe.

He don't got no income tax 'cause he don't got no dough
Still he gets along just fine how we'll never know
He's got everything he wants a girl a drink a song
And if we use his formula we surely can't go wrong.

His favorite playground is anywhere there's girl
He's got that something that sets their hearts a whirl
It couldn't be his money cause he ain't got a peso
But when he wants a kiss all he's got to do is say so.

Dancin', romancin', always on the go
Sun shining down on Mexican Joe.

Sun shining down on Mexican Joe...
