South of the Border
South of the border Down Mexico way
That's where I fell in love when stars above came out to play
For it was fiesta and we were so gay
South of the border Down Mexico way

She was a picture in old Spanish lace
And for a tender while I kissed the smile upon her face
For it was fiesta and we were so gay
South of the border down Mexico way

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

Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!
Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!
Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!
Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!
