South of the border, down Mexico way -
That's where I fell in love, where 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 picture in old Spanish lace;
Just for a tender while, I kissed a smile upon her face.
'Cause it was fiesta and we were so gay
South of the border, down Mexico way.

(Bridge:)
Then she smiled as she whispered "maņana,"
Never dreaming that we were parting;
And I lied as a whispered "maņana,"
'Cause our tomorrow never came.

South of the border, I jumped back one day
There in a veil of white, by the candle light, she knelt to pray;
The mission bells told me that I musn't stay
South of the border, down Mexico way.
