I met this girl at a wedding down in Mexico.

Her long black curls; they would follow her wherever she'd go.

Oh I taught her how to samba I only wish I would have thought of 
That when you're dancing by the ocean you can fabricate emotion 
And it's hard to differentiate.

   E                          Gbm                                  
Is it the rhythm or the sand? Senorita understand 
             A                         B
They'll take hold of you. They'll take hold of you.

The evening sea will pull you in, hypnotize and leave you when 
       A                       B
You go home again. When you go home again.

The letters fly and I feel bad for how long I have delayed, 
                 A                                             E
But I just can't reply 'cause I'd be typing until the month of may. 
                         A             Abm             
It's like a scratch on a CD that keeps repeating 
            Dbm            Gb7
and now the song is losing meaning. 
So if you want to find the one for you go on and skip a track or two
and cast aside this old debate.

I met this girl and now it seems it was forever ago.
                        A                            Am
We found ourselves in a dream but we left it down in Mexico-oh-oh oh.
