From the recording The Procrastinators
MEXICO OR BUST ©1996 by David T. Green & Bill Carson
We came of age when we crossed that stage
Diplomas in our hand,
Pockets stuffed with dollar bills
We're headed for the promised land.
Through the night the headlights burned
Pedal to the floor,
Doing eighty with the windows down
Listen to the engine roar.
(chorus) A worn out truck and a cloud of dust,
We're going to Mexico...or bust!
We crossed the bridge and dove right in
To the first bar with a band,
A dark eyed beauty showed us why
They call it the Rio Grande.
Door to door through the neon night
We found the Cadillac,
Chasing beer with tequila shots
We ain't never going back.
(repeat chorus) (repeat chorus)
We woke up with a pounding head
And all our money gone,
Another day in paradise
It's time to go back home.
We found a jump, so we're on our way
Don't let her die.
Gas & beer’s all we need, let’s find I-35. (repeat chorus)
