Lyrics

Mexican Divorce

Written By: Written by Burt Bacharach; Bob Hillard

It’s a sin for you to get a Mexican Divorce

Down below El Paso lies Juarez

Mexico is different, like the travel folder says

Cross the Rio Grande and you will find

An old adobe house

Where you leave your past behind

One day married, the next day free

Broken hearts for you and me

Take no time, for you to get

A Mexican Divorce

As I come into this lonely house last night

I looked at all my windows But I couldn’t find one light

I found you on the road to Mexico

And now, my love, I beg

Please, oh, please don’t go

One day married the next day free

Broken hearts for you and me

It’s a sin for you to get a Mexican Divorce

One day married, next day free

Broken hearts for you and me

it’s a sin for you to get a Mexican Divorce.

Fools Fall InLove

Written By: Jerry Lieber; Mike Stoller

Well, fools fall in love in a hurry

Fools give their hearts much to soon

Just play they two bar of Stardust

Just hang out a silly Moon, Oh, Oh

They’ve got their love torches burning

When they should be playing it cool

I used to laugh, but now I understand

Shake the hand of a brand new fool

Well, fools fall in love just like schoolgirls

Blinded by rose colored dreams

They build their castles on wishes

With only rainbows for beams, Oh, Oh

Their making plans for the future

When they should be right back in school

I used to laugh but now I understand

Shake the hand of a brand new fool.

There Goes My Baby

There Goes my baby
Movin’ on down the line
Wonder where, wonder where
Wonder where she is bound

I broke her heart and made her cry
Now I’m alone, so all alone
What can I do, What can I do?

There goes my baby
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh)
There she goes
(Yeah)

I wanna know If she loved my
Did she really love me?
Was she just playing me for a fool?

I wonder why she left me
Why did she leave me so all alone
So all alone

Was she just playing me for a fool?

I wonder why she left me
Why did she leave me so all alone,
So all along

I was gonna tell that I loved her
And that I need her
Beside my side, to be my guide

I wanna know where is my

(Doo doot, doo doo, doo doo)

Where is my Baby

(Doo doot, doo doo, doo doo)

I need my baby, Yeah

(doo doot, doo doo, doo doo)

(Whoa, Oh, oh)

There goes my baby

(Whoa, Oh, oh)

There goes my baby
