    Lyrics

    Down in the Mexicali
    There's a crazy little place that I know
    Where the drinks are hotter than the chili sauce
    And the boss is a cat named Joe

    He wears a red bandana, plays a blues pi-anna
    (In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)
    He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
    (In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)

    Well, the first time that I saw him
    He was sittin' on a piano stool
    I said "a-tell me dad, when does the fun begin?"
    He just winked his eye and said "man, be cool"

    He wears a red bandana, plays a blues p-ianna
    (In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)
    He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
    (In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico, in Mexico)

    All of a sudden in walks this chick (in Mexico)
    Joe starts playing on a Latin kick (in Mexico)
    Around her waist she wore three fishnets (in Mexico)
    She started dancin' with the castanets (in Mexico)
    I didn't know just what to expect (in Mexico)
    She threw her arms around my neck (in Mexico)
    We started dancin' all around the floor
    And then she did a dance I never saw before

    So if you're south of the border
    I mean down in a-Mexico
    And you want to get straight, man
    Don't hesitate
    Just look up a cat named Joe

    He wears a red bandana, plays a blues pi-anna
    (In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)
    He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
    (In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)
