It happened in Monterey, a long time ago, 
I met her in Monterey, in old Mexico.
Stars and steel guitars and luscious lips as red as wine;
Broke somebody's heart and I'm afraid, that it was mine.

It happened in Monterey, and without thinking twice,
I left her and through away, the key to paradise.
My indiscreet heart longs for the sweetheart 
That I left in old Monterey.
