I didn't know you weren't supposed to drink the water
I never knew it was so hard to get through south of that border
If I had any idea it took that many pesos to make a dollar
I'd have moved down there
Yeah, I'd probably been a millionaire
Rosa at the bayou told me Sinco de Mayo is their fourth of July
And you don't sneak up on a jabanero pepper and just take a bite
Rosa says the sunsets on some of them beaches that'll make you cry
I said, is that right?
Cause up until tonight

All I knew about Mexico
Was him with my baby on the back of that Harley
Passin' every car as fast as they could go
And all I know about pretty a white sand
Is she's probably on it now sharing a little beach towel
With her "left me for another" man
Or working on a tan I bet
While I'm here trying to forget
All I know about Mexico

And I've heard some pretty scary stuff about them jails down in Tijuana
And it ain't nothin' like the US if you get busted
And I hear he's all hauked up on that marijuana
I can't help but worrying about her being down there when he leaves her
And you know he's gonna leave her
Any day now, yeah, the cops will come around
Wanna know what I've known

All I know about Mexico
Was him with my baby on the back of that Harley
Passin' every car as fast as they could go
And all I know about a pretty white sand
Is she's probably on it now sharing a little beach towel
With her "left me for another" man
Oh she's working on her tan I bet
While I'm here trying to forget
All I know about Mexico

All I knew about Mexico
Was him with my baby on the back of that Harley
Passin' every car just as fast as they could go
And all I know about a pretty white sand
Is she's probably on it now sharing her little beach towel
With her "left me for another" man
Oh she's working on her tan I bet
While I'm here trying to forget
All I know about Mexico
All I know, I know, I know, I know about Mexico
