Benny Hill – Jose's Cantina lyrics

When I met you, in Rosie's Cantina,
You looked so lonesome and sad.
I bought you a drink, and I said with a wink,
Maybe things won't be so bad.

You ordered... A large champagne cocktail,
Then vodka and wine from Jerome.
And as I bought it I suddenly thought it's
No wonder that you're on your own.

You took me... Across town to your place,
My eagernes I could not hide.
When we reached your floor, you closed the front door,

Tell me... Why did you leave me outside... ?

So I went... And sang 'neath your window,
From midnight 'til turned half past three.
Oh tell me sweet lady, sweet lady pray tell me,
What was it you emptied on me... ?

I hoped... When I met you Maria,
You'd be the love of my life.
I gave you my heart, but you tore it apart,
So I think I'll go back to the wife...
