In a little cafe just the other side of the border
She was just sitting there givin' me looks
That made my mouth water

So I started walking her way
She belonged to that man, Jose
And I knew, yes, I knew I should leave
When I heard her say, yeah, yeah

“Come a little bit closer
You're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I'm all alone
And the night is so long”

So we started to dance
In my arms, she felt so inviting
That I just couldn't resist
Just one little kiss, so exciting

Then I heard the guitar player say
"Vamoose, Jose’s on his way"
Then I knew, yes, I knew I should run
But, then I heard her say, yeah, yea

“Come a little bit closer
You're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I'm all alone
And the night is so long”

(Instrumental Break)

Then the music stopped
When I looked, the cafe was empty
Then I heard Jose say
"Man, you know you're in trouble plenty"

So I dropped my drink from my hand
And through the window I ran
And as I rode away
I could hear her say, to Jose, yeah, yeah

“Come a little bit closer
You're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I'm all alone
And the night is so long”

La la-la-la la-la
La la-la-la la-la
Ho, ho, la-la
La, la, la-la, la-la
Ho, la-la
