Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across that ring and then
You roll-away, circle left and go
Those ladies roll-away and circle left and then
Left allemande and you weave the ring
I'm eating right and I'm living good
Swing that girl and promenade, you should
I should have left a long time ago
Who needs you, I got Mexico


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands I say
Dosado, make an ocean wave
Ladies trade, ladies run, tag the line
Face to the right, ferris wheel in time
Pass thru, swing thru, boys trade
Swing that corner then you all promenade
I lost you a long time ago
He's got you, I got Mexico


TAG

He's got you, I got Mexico

I Got Mexico
 
 

I just got tired of that same ol' job
Tired of fightin' that freeway mob
I bet you never thought I'd really go
I'd never get as far as Mexico

I've even learned to speak the language some
Down on the beach drinkin' Coke and rum
You wouldn't know me with this golden glow
Soakin' sun in Mexico

I'm eatin' right and I'm livin' good
Doin' everything I said I would
I should've left a long time ago
Who needs you? I got Mexico

Through it all, nothin's really changed
No matter what, honey, that's a shame
I still love you, that's the way it goes
He's got you, I got Mexico

But I'm eatin' right and I'm livin' good
I'm doin' everything I said I would
I should've left a long time ago
Who needs you? I got Mexico

I'm eatin' right and I'm livin' good
Doin' everything I said I would
I lost you a long time ago
He's got you, I got Mexico

I'm eatin' right and I'm livin' good
Doin' everything I said I would
I lost you a long time ago
Hell with you, I got Mexico

Lyrics by Eddie Raven and Frank J. Myers.
