Down below El Paso lies Juárez -
Mexico is different - yes! - like the travel folder says!
Cross the Rio Grande and you will find
An old adobe house, where you leave your past behind!

One day married, next day free -
Broken hearts for you and me -
Takes no time at all to get
A Mexican divorce!

As I came home to this empty house last night
Looked at all the windows - yes I did! - but I couldn't find one light!
I found you on this road to Mexico
And now, my love, I'm pleading: Please, oh please, don't go!

One day married, next day free -
Broken hearts for you and me -
Takes no time at all to get
A Mexican divorce!

Finding love takes so long -
Walking out must be wrong -
It's a sin for you to get
A Mexican divorce!

One day married, next day free -
Broken hearts for you and me -
Takes no time at all to get ...
