mexicali girl

it was there that i saw here
on the other side of the river
and it was there we fell in love
but our love was forbidden
by her father
so now i long to hold
my mexicali girl

mexicali girl
with her warm dark eyes
and her ruby lips
hair black as night
mexicali girl
sing to me soft and low
and let me know
it’s gonna be alright

someday when i have money
i’m going back across the river
and reclaim the love that was denied
gonna bring her back
and we’ll find our ever after
but now i can only dream
of my mexicali girl

mexicali girl
with her warm dark eyes
and her ruby lips
hair black as night
mexicali girl
sing to me soft and low
and let me know
it’s gonna be alright

mexicali girl
canta suave y lento
y dime sabre que todo esta bien
