In a little caf just the other side of the border,
She was a-sitting there, giving me looks that made my mouth water.
But they told me, Stay out of her way,
Or you ll have to face Big Bad Jos.
And I knew, yes I knew, I should leave then I heard her say,
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!
Well, we started to dance. In my arms, she felt so inviting!
And I just couldn t resist, oh just one little kiss so exciting.
Then I guess I got carried away,
And my fingertips started to stray.
And I knew, yes I knew, I should stop but I heard her say,
The musicians called out, with a knowing wink at each other,
She won t look at you twice, once Jos gets his hands on you, brother.
Then I heard the guitar player say,
Vamoose! Jos s on his way!
And I knew, yes I knew, I should run but then I heard her say,
There was no time to run, and no place to hide if I could run.
Then I heard Jos say, Well, Ynez, you ve caught me a good one!
And he looked at me sort of the way
A bullfighter looks at his prey.
And I knew, yes I knew, the next words I d hear from Jos:
