This song is by James Taylor and appears on the album Gorilla (1975).

Way down here
You need a reason to move
Feel a fool
Running your stateside games
Lose your load,
Leave your mind behind, Baby James

Oh, Mexico
You sound so simple I just got to go
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home
Guess I'll have to go now

Got the sleepy damn eye
But his body's still shaking
Like a live wire
Sleepy Señorita
With the eyes on fire

Oh, Mexico
It sounds so sweet with the sun sinking low
The moon's so bright like to light up the night
Make everything all right

Baby's hungry
And the money's all gone
The folks back home
Don't want to talk on the phone
She gets a long letter,
Sends back a postcard; times are hard

Oh, down in Mexico
I never really been so I don't really know
Oh, Mexico
I guess I'll have to go

Oh, Mexico
I never really been but I'd sure like to go
And woh, Mexico
I guess I'll have to go now

Talkin' down in Mexico
