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.

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.
