OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I just got tired of that same old job
Tired of fightin' that freeway mob
I bet you never thought I'd really go
I'd never get as far as Mexico
, allemande and weave
I'm eatin right and I'm livin good
Swing your girl around and promenade
I should have left a long time ago
Who needs you? I got Mexico


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 girls
Heads promenade 1/2 and go
Into the middle right & left thru
Sides promenade 1/2
Sides right & left thru
Swing your new lady round and promenade
I should have left a long time ago
Who needs you? I got Mexico


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
But 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
, allemande and weave
But I'm eatin' right and I'm livin good
Swing your girl around and promenade
I should have left a long time ago
Who needs you? I got Mexico


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Through it all nothing'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've got Mexico
I'm eatin right and I'm livin good
, Allemande and weave
Swing your girl around and promenade
I should have left a long time ago
Who needs you? I got Mexico

I Got Mexico  (1984)

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.
Recorded by Eddie Raven.
