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

And she smiled and 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 candlelight she knelt to pray
And the mission bells told me that I mustn't stay
South of the border, down Mexico way

Songwriters
Carr, Michael / Kennedy, Jimmy
