Way down here, you need a reason to move
Feelin' blue, runnin' your stateside game
Lose your load, leave your mind behind
Baby James

Oooohhhh Mexico
It sounds so simple I just got to go
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home
I guess I'll have to go now

Americano's got the sleepy eyes
But his body's still shakin' like a live wire
Senorita with her eyes on fire
Don't you know?

Ohhhhhh Mexico
Sounds so sweet with the sun sinkin' low
The moon's so bright, likes to light up the night
Make everything alright

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

Ooooohhhhhh Mexico
I've never really been so I don't really know
Ooooohhhh Mexico
I guess I'll have to go now

Ooohhhh Mexico
I've never really been but I'd sure like to go
OOOhhhh Mexico
I guess I'll have to go

Talkin' bout Mexico
Little Honky Tonk down in Mexico
South of Margaritaville I've been told
Oooohhhh Mexico
