South Of The Border (Berry Chuck)

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 - Mexico way Then she smiled as she whispered "manjanna" Never dreaming that we were parting Then I lied as a whispered "manjanna" 'Cause our tomorrow never came South of the border - I jumped 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 - Mexico way
