South of the Border

Writer(s): Jimmy Kennedy / Michael Carr

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 “mańana”, never dreaming that we were parting
Then I lied as I whispered “mańana”, ’cause our tomorrow never came.
South of the border I came 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 down Mexico way
