    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 Mexico way

    Then she smiled as she whispered "manana"
    Never dreaming that we were parting
    Then I lied as a whispered "manana"
    '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 (ding-dong) that I musn't stay
    South of the border Mexico way
