Chris Isaak – South Of The Border lyrics

South of the border (down mexico way)

South of the border, down mexico way.
That's where I fell in love when the
Stars above no comma 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 the
Smile no comma upon her face.
For it was fiesta, and love had its day
(it's actually "we were so gay," but I'm assuming you know that.
South of the border, down mexico way.

Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)
Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)

Then she sighed as she whispered manana,
Never dreaming that we were parting.
And I lied as I whispered manana, for our
Tomorrow never came.

South of the border, I rode back one day.
There in a veil of white by the
Candlelight, she knelt to pray.
The mission bells told me no comma that I
Shouldn't stay.
South of the border, down mexico way.

Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)
Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)
Ay, ay, ay, ay (ay, ay, ay, ay)
Good bye good bye.
