Artist

The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues/rock and roll vocal group who had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Beginning with "Searchin'" and "Young Blood", their most memorable songs were written by the songwriting and producing team of Leiber and Stoller.

Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo-wop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s.

Lyrics

Down in Mexicali
There's a crazy little place that I know
Where the drinks are hotter than the chili sauce
And the boss is a cat named Joe
He wears a red bandanna, plays a blues piano
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash and a black mustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

Well, the first time that I saw him
He was sittin' on a piano stool
I said "Tell me, dad, when does the fun begin?"
He just winked his eye and said, "Man, be cool"
He wears a red bandanna, plays a blues piano
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash and a black mustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

In Mexico
All of a sudden in walks this chick
In Mexico
Joe starts playing on a Latin kick
In Mexico
Around her waist she wore three fishnets
In Mexico
She started dancin' with the castanets
In Mexico
I didn't know just what to expect
In Mexico
She threw her arms around my neck
In Mexico
We started dancin' all around the floor
And then she did a dance I never saw before

So if you're south of the border
I mean down in the Mexico
And you wanna get straight, man, don't hesitate
Just look up a cat named Joe
He wears a red bandanna, plays a blues piano
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black mustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

Yeah, como est usted senorita
Come with me to the border
South of the border, that is
In Mexico, yeah in Mexico
You can get your kicks in Mexico
Come with me, baby, come with me
Come with me, crazy, yeah

Testo

Giù a Mexicali
C'è un piccolo posto pazzo che conosco
Dove le bevande sono più calde della salsa chili
E il capo è un gatto di nome Joe
Indossa una bandana rossa, suona un piano blues
In un honky-tonk, giù in Messico
Indossa una fascia viola e baffi neri
In un honky-tonk, giù in Messico

Bene, la prima volta che l'ho visto
Era seduto su uno sgabello per pianoforte
Ho detto "Dimmi, papà, quando inizia il divertimento?"
Strizzò l'occhio e disse: "Amico, sii calmo"
Indossa una bandana rossa, suona un piano blues
In un honky-tonk, giù in Messico
Indossa una fascia viola e baffi neri
In un honky-tonk, giù in Messico

In Messico
Improvvisamente cammina questa ragazza
In Messico
Joe inizia a giocare su un calcio latino
In Messico
Intorno alla vita portava tre calze a rete
In Messico
Ha iniziato a ballare con le nacchere
In Messico
Non sapevo proprio cosa aspettarmi
In Messico
Mi gettò le braccia al collo
In Messico
Abbiamo iniziato a ballare tutto il pavimento
E poi ha fatto una danza che non avevo mai visto prima

Quindi se sei a sud del confine
Intendo giù in Messico
E vuoi andare dritto, amico, non esitare
Cerca un gatto di nome Joe
Indossa una bandana rossa, suona un piano blues
In un honky-tonk, giù in Messico
Indossa una fascia viola e baffi neri
In un honky-tonk, giù in Messico

Sì, como est usted senorita
Vieni con me al confine
A sud del confine, cioè
In Messico, sì in Messico
Puoi ottenere i tuoi calci in Messico
Vieni con me, piccola, vieni con me
Vieni con me, pazzo, sì
