OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain on across that floor
Half sashay, circle left once more
Four ladies rollaway, circle around
Allemande that corner girl and weave it around
I'm eating right and I'm living good
I'm doing everything I said I would
I should have left a long time ago
Who needs you, I've got Mexico


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway around
Walk in and square thru four hands around
Go all the way around and do a dosado
Make a wave, girls trade, swing thru you know
Turn thru and then do a left allemande
Come back and swing, promenade round the ring
I should have left a long time ago
Who needs you, I've got Mexico

Who needs you, I've 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.
