Come A Little Bit Closer
Jay & The Americans Lyrics


In a little cafe
Just the other side of the border
She was just sitting there givin' me looks
That made my mouth water

So I started walking her way
She belonged to bad man Jose
And I knew, yes I knew I should leave
When I heard her say, yeah

"Come a little bit closer
You're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I'm all alone and the night is so long"

So we started to dance
In my arms, she felt so inviting
And I just couldn't resist
Just one little kiss, so exciting

Then I heard the guitar player say
"Vamos, Jose's on his way"
Then I knew, yes I knew I should run
But then I heard her say, yeah

"Come a little bit closer
You're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I'm all alone and the night is so long"

Then the music stopped
When I looked the cafe was empty
Then I heard Jose say
"Man, you know you're in trouble plenty"

So I dropped my drink from my hand
And out through the window I ran
And as I rode away
I could hear her say to Jose, yeah

"Come a little bit closer
You're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I'm all alone and the night is so long"

"Come A Little Bit Closer"

In a little café just the other side of the border
She was just sitting there giving me looks that made my mouth water
So I started walking her way
She belonged to bad man José
And I knew, yes I knew I should leave
When I heard her say

Come a little bit closer, you're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer, I'm all alone
And the night is so long

So we started to dance, in my arms she felt so inviting
That I just couldn't resist just one little kiss so exciting
Then I heard the guitar player say
Vamoose, José's on his way
And I knew, yes I knew I should run
But then I heard her say

Come a little bit closer, you're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer, I'm all alone
And the night is so long

Then the music stopped, when I looked the café was empty
Then I heard José say, "Man, you know you're in trouble plenty"
So I dropped my drink from my hand
And through the window I ran
And as I rode away I could hear
Her say to José

Come a little bit closer, you're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer, I'm all alone
And the night is so long



Adam Milette

In a super cafe
Just the other side of the galaxy
He was just sittin' there a grinnin'
With red fin that made him look sinisterly
This man had just been betrayed
The crew had all turned away
So this man that was blue's white blew
And I heard him say

Watch out, here comes my arrow
It flies super fast
And kills everyone

Watch out, here comes my arrow
Legolas sucks
And Yondu is the one!

So the ravagers ran
But the arrow was way too fast for them
They couldn't escape
The arrow quickly did chase
And it killed them
Then I heard a ravager say
"Down there!" giving his spot away
Then it flew, yes it flew
Straight right through
Blowing them all away, yeah

Watch out, here comes my arrow
It flies super fast
And kills everyone

Watch out, here comes my arrow
Legolas sucks
And Yondu is the one!

And the arrow stopped
Now the ship was practically empty
Then I heard taserface scream in a rage
Out to the gold lady
So kraglin flipped the switch
With his hands
Their ship broke apart and they ran
And as they flew away
I could hear Yondu taunt taserface

Watch out, here comes my arrow
It flies super fast
And kills everyone

Watch out here comes my arrow
Legolas sucks
And Yondu is the one!

Watch out, here comes my arrow
It flies super fast
And kills everyone

Watch out, here comes my arrow
Legolas sucks
And Yondu is the one!

Alissa Reminiec

cajun,, how do you like my taek onthis song?
In a little cantina
On the other side of the border
She was giving him looks that made his mouth water.

So he started walking her way
But she belonged to that Bad Man José
And he knew,yes,he knew that he should leave
When he heard her say,yeah

Come Just A little Bit Closer
You're my kind of man
Very big and so strong
Come Just A Little Bit Closer
I'm all alone and the night is very long.


So they started to dance
In his arms she felt so inviting
And he couldn't resist
Only one little kiss, So exciting

Then he heard the gutiar player say
¡ Vamos,José est? en camino!
Then he knew ,yes, he knew that he should run
But then he heard her say,yeah
(Chorus)

Then the music suddenly stopped
When he looked the cantina was empty
Then he heard José say
"¡ Hombré est?s en mucha paciencia!"

So he dropped the drink from his hand
And through the window he ran
As he rode away ,
He could hear her say to José,yeah
(Chorus)

I'll be glad when a song like this is rediscovered by our younger generation. How can you possibly not move when you hear this tune? A classic.

Vincenté Sanches sr

@Mark Magnolia not cheesy. Have you ever been across the border in Tijuana in 70s-80s. It says it the Mexicans beating up the American gringos. Just like the song by WAR. now they rock. I'm an old timer
