ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL
"South Of The Border (Down Mexico Way)"
(Michael Carr and Jimmy Kennedy)

Ay ay ay ay
Ay ay ay ay

South of the border down Mexico way
That's where they fell in love when stars above came out to play
And now as they wander their thoughts ever stray
South of the border down Mexico way

She was a picture in old Spanish lace
Just for a tender while he kissed the smile upon her face
For it was Fiesta and they were so gay
South of the border down Mexico way

Then she sighed as she whispered mananna
Never dreaming that they were parting
And he lied as he whispered mananna
For that tomorrow never came

South of the border he rode back one day
There in a veil of white by candlelight she knelt to pray
The mission bells told him that he mustn'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
