I met a girl in Laredo down in Mexico
While I was makin' the rounds
Down in a dim cafe she does the swing and sway
That's the talk of the town.
I never learned her name but she's called the Spanish Fireball.

While she kept rhythm with her hips from her ruby lips
Came a love song so sweet
And as she rhumbaed by the fire in her eyes
Looked like flames in the night
T'was then I understood why she's called the Spanish Fireball.

I finally asked her for a dance and I got the chance
Holding her closely to me
As we were cheek to cheek I grew too weak to speak
And it was plain to see
That I had fallen in love with this cute little Spanish Fireball.

--- Instrumental ---

She wore a ruby braclet and a blue white diamond
Upon her little brown hand
She made a perfect date and in her Cadillac eight
She made me understand
I played the part and gave my heart to the Spanish Fireball.

We wandered out beneath the stars while the old guitars
Strummed a Mexican tune
And as I stole a kiss I knew too well that this
Would all end too soon
'Cause I must go away and leave my Spanish Fireball.

As that old moon was sinking low I heard the whistle blow
My train was pulling in sight
And so we kissed goodbye the tears were in her eyes
As I left in the night
But someday I'll return back and claim my Spanish Fireball...

    In a small cafe in mexico, a guy found a pretty mexican lady who was a smooth dancer. He courted her and they had a romantic encounter as he continued for a night (or more), and finally, he had to return home to
    Take care of his private affairs before he could return to claim her for his
    Own forever. They moved to mexico city and maybe japan later. Wow
    I love it. And i really liked to hear hank snow for the many years. Hw
