We went one day about a month ago (a-ha-ha)
To have a little fun (a-ha) Mexico
We ended up in a gambling spot (oh yeah) a-ha-ha
Where the liquor flow-owed and the dice were hot

So here we a-are in the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends to go our bail
So here we'll stay ‘cause we can't pay
Just send our mail to the Tijuana Jail

I was shootin' dice, rakin' in the dough (long green)
And then I heard the whistle blow
We started to run when a man in blue
Said "Señor, come with me ‘cause I want you."

So here we are in the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends to go our bail
So here we'll stay ‘cause we can't pay
Just send our mail to the Tijuana Jail

Just five hundred dollars and they'll set us free
I couldn't raise a penny if ya threatened me
I know five hundred don't sound like much
But just try to find somebody to touch

So here we are in the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends to go our bail
So here we'll stay ‘cause we can't pay
Just send our mail to the Tijuana Jail

So here we are in the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends to go our bail
So here we'll stay ‘cause we can't pay
Just send our mail to the Tijuana Jail
