down in mexico
The Coaster Lyrics


Down in the Mexicali
There's a crazy little place that I know
Where the drinks are hotter than the chili sauce
And the boss is a cat named Joe

He wears a red bandana, plays a blues pi-anna
(In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
(In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)

Well, the first time that I saw him
He was sittin' on a piano stool
I said "a-tell me dad, when does the fun begin?"
He just winked his eye and said "man, be cool"

He wears a red bandana, plays a blues p-ianna
(In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
(In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico, in Mexico)

All of a sudden in walks this chick (in Mexico)
Joe starts playing on a Latin kick (in Mexico)
Around her waist she wore three fishnets (in Mexico)
She started dancin' with the castanets (in Mexico)
I didn't know just what to expect (in Mexico)
She threw her arms around my neck (in Mexico)
We started dancin' all around the floor
And then she did a dance I never saw before

So if you're south of the border
I mean down in a-Mexico
And you want to get straight, man
Don't hesitate
Just look up a cat named Joe

He wears a red bandana, plays a blues pi-anna
(In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
(In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico)

Down in Mexicali
There's a crazy little place that I know
Where the drinks are hotter than the chili sauce
And the boss is a cat named Joe

He wears a red bandana, plays a cool pianna
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

Well, the first time that I saw him
He was sittin' on a piano stool
I said "Tell me man, when does the fun begin?"
He just winked his eye and said
"Man, be cool."

He wears a red bandana, plays a cool pianna
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

In Mexico...
All of a sudden in walks a chick
In Mexico...
Joe starts playin on a latin kick
In Mexico...
Around her waist she wore three fishnets
In Mexico...
She started dancin with the castanets
In Mexico...
I didn't know just what to expect
In Mexico...
She threw her arms around my neck In Mexico...
We started dancin all around the floor
In Mexico...
Until she did a dance I never saw before

So if you're south of the border
I mean down in Mexico
And you wanna get straight
Man, don't hesitate
Just look up a cat named Joe

(Chorus)
He wears a red bandana
Plays a cool pianna
In a honky tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black moustache
In a honky tonk, down in Mexico

[Spoken by Carl Gardner:]
Yeah, como est usted senorita
Come with me to the border, south of the border, that is
In Mexico, yeah in Mexico
You can get your kicks in Mexico Come with me baby, come with me, come with me, crazy, yeah

the way they switch tempos. such a killer song. and heavy. just heavy.

Larry O'Neill

Leiber and Stoller were the champs at writing "storytelling" lyrics with a nice splash of humor. Teaming up with The Coasters to deliver classic 50s and 60s era songs was nothing more than magic -- one of a kind that can never be replaced. Thanks for helping to keep their legacy alive, as we attempt to do every Saturday night on our radio program.
