Doug Sahm

Douglas Wayne Sahm (November 6, 1941 – November 18, 1999), was an American musician from Texas. Born in San Antonio, Texas, he was a child prodigy in country music but became a significant figure in blues rock and other genres. Today, Sahm is considered one of the most important figures in what is identified as Tejano music. He was the founder and leader of the 1960s rock and roll band, the Sir Douglas Quintet. He would later co-found the Texas Tornados with Augie Meyers, Freddy Fender, and Flaco Jimenez as well as Los Super Seven. more »

Teeny Bopper, my teenage lover
I caught your waves last night
It sent my mind to wonderin'.
You're such a groove

Please don't move
Please stay in my love house by the river.
Fast talkin' guys with strange red eyes
Have put things in your head

And started your mind to wonderin'
I love you so, please don't go
Please stay here with me in Mendocino.
Mendocino, Mendocino,

Where life's such a groove
You blow your mind in the morning.
We used to walk through the park,
Make love along the way in Mendocino.

(Ah, play it, Augie! Yeah!)
Hey!
Like I told you, Can you dig it?
If you want to groove, I'll be glad to have you.

'Cause I love you so, please don't go,
Please stay here with me in Mendocino,
Mendocino, Mendocino
Where life's such a groove,

You blow your mind in the morning
We used to walk through the park,
Make love along the way in Mendocino
Mendocino, Mendocino, Mendocino
