Well, I drove down to El Paso on my business
Well, I was just another executive workin' for the bank
When I crossed that border line, I dropped my business
And I wound up for three days in the Juarez tank

Cantina Carlotta, lady after I met you
Well, I knew that I was ready to start somethin' new
So I dropped my Brook Brothers suits and all my fancy painted ties
Ah, just for one night with Carlotta and her painted eye

When I got out of jail, I went lookin' for Carlotta
Yeah, I needed some more of that sweet affectionada
But at the cantina they told me she's gone to Guadalajara
And when I asked it she'd be back they just said d'nada

Cantina Carlotta, lady after I met you
Well, I knew that I was ready to start somethin' new
So I dropped my Brook Brothers suits and all my fancy painted ties, oh ties
Just for one night with Carlotta, yeah, one night with Carlotta
Ah, uno noches Carlotta and her painted eye
