Johnny Duncan – Come A Little Bit Closer lyrics

In a little cafe on the other side of the border
She was sitting there giving me looks that made my mouth water
So I started walking her way, she belonged to Bad Man Jose
And I knew, yes I knew, I should leave, then I heard her say

Come a little bit closer, you're my kind of man, so big and so
Come a little bit closer, I'm all alone, and the night is so long

So we started to dance, in my arms she felt so inviting
And I just couldn't resist, a-just a-one little kiss so exciting
Then I heard the guitar player say: Vamoose, Jose's on his way
And I knew, yes I knew, I should run, but then I heard her say


Then the music stopped, when I looked, the cafe was empty
And I heard Jose say: Man, you know you're in trouble plenty
So I dropped the drink from my hand, and out through the window I ran

And as I rode away, I could hear her say to Jose
