MEXICAN JOE (Mitchell Torok) as recorded by Jim Reeves with The Circle O Ranch Boys 1953 South of the border, hey, I know a lad, He's got more fun than anybody's had! Don't got no worry, don't got no dough, Everybody's wonderin' 'bout Mexican Joe! In old Mexico they call him the rumba king, Leads all the women around on a string! When they go out they get a million thrills, But the lovely senoritas wind up with the bills! Dancin', romancin', always on the go, Sun shinin' down on Mexican Joe! He makes the night spots all along the bay, People wanna see him when he comes their way. He spreads so much joy everywhere he goes, Everyone shouts, "Viva la Mexican Joe!" He like to gamble, at poker he's an ace, He's always lucky with the cards that got a face. At winnin' the money, he is sure a whiz, But when they win they don't collect 'cause they don't know where he is! Dancin', romancin', always on the go, Sun shinin' down on Mexican Joe! He don't got no income tax 'cause he don't got no dough, Still he gets along just fine, how we'll never know! He's got everything he wants, a girl, a drink, a song; If we use his formula we surely can't go wrong! His favourite playground is anywhere there's girls, He's got that somethin' that sets their hearts a-whirl! It couldn't be his money 'cause he ain't got a peso, But when he wants a kiss all he gotta do is say so! Dancin', romancin', always on the go, Sun shinin' down on Mexican Joe!
