South of the border and busted
Caught by a woman I trusted
Now don't you call me a fool
It could have happened to you
It's just my luck, it had to happen to me

Sweet Carmelita betrayed me
She said, "Take me home, serenade me"
I figured a song could do me no wrong
I didn't know how wrong I could be

Easy money
For just one run to Peru
It'll be so easy
We'll have no trouble gettin' through

Well, I almost made it
Except for that one border guard
He opened up my guitar, hello prison yard
Goodbye easy money, easy money

The Chiquita must have told 'em my story
'Cause when my eyes finally focused next morning
Carmelita had spoken 'bout guitars and some coke
Then she laughed as they slapped me in chains

I was thrown in cell with a killer
A convict who coughed through the night
While I laid awake with the chills and the shakes
Hoping for a file in a cake

Easy money
For just one run to Peru
It'll be so easy
We'll have no trouble gettin' through

Well, I almost made it
Except for that one border guard
He opened up my guitar, hello prison yard
Goodbye easy money, easy money

Easy money
For just one run to Peru
It'll be so easy
We'll have no trouble gettin' through

Well, I almost made it
Except for that one border guard
He opened up my guitar, hello prison yard
[Incomprehensible] my guitar
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye easy money
