BURT BACHARACH lyrics - Mexican Divorce

BURT BACHARACH
"Mexican Divorce"
(Burt Bacharach / Bob Hilliard)

Down below El Paso lies Juarez
Mexico is different, like the travel folder says!
Cross the Rio Grande and you will find
An old adobe house, where you leave your past behind!

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time at all to get
A Mexican divorce!

As I came home to this empty house last night
Looked at all the windows and I couldn't find one light!
I found you on this road to Mexico
And now, my love, I'm pleading: Please, oh please, don't go!

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time at all to get
A Mexican divorce!

Finding love takes so long
Walking out must be wrong
It's a sin for you to get
A Mexican divorce!

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time at all to get
A Mexican divorce!

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time at all to get
A Mexican divorce!

One day married...
