... "South of the Border"............. (from USA)

Words & Music by Jimmy Kennedy & Michael Carr

Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1953

"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 - down Mexico way

Then she smiled as she whispered 'mañana'

Never dreaming that we were parting

Then I lied as a whispered "mañana"

'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 - that I musn't stay

South of the border - down Mexico way"
