South of the border, down Mexico way
That's where I fell in love when the stars above came out to play
And now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray
South of the border, down Mexico way

She was a vision in old Spanish lace
Just 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

Then she smiled as she whispered manana
Never dreaming that we were parting
And I lied as I whispered manana
For our tomorrow never came

South of the border, I rode back one day
There in a veil of white, by candle light, she knelt to pray
But 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
