Hank Snow – When Mexican Joe Met Jole Blon lyrics

Album: The Singing Ranger 1949 1953

When Mexican Joe met Jole Blon
Si, Si, Si, oui, oui, how they carried on
He held her tight and danced all night
And crossed the border at daylight
When Mexican Joe met Jole Blon

Mexican Joe was wild and reckless
He walked into a honky-tonk in Texas
Looking for some real romance and pettin'
On a barroom stool alone this doll was settin'

He walked up to the bar and said, I think I'll have a drink
Three fingers of tequila will clear my head, I think
Well, she looked around and caught his eye
And Joe said, I, yi, yi, yi, yi
When Mexican Joe met Jole Blon

Joe said, Lovely señorita
Let's go out and paint the town
So he danced her and romanced her
And he showed that gal around
Jole Blon said, I'm so hungry
And she breathed a little sigh
So he fed her filet gumbo, enchiladas, on the side

Then he held her close and whispered
Will you be mine for life
She said, Oui, monsieur, but tell me
What'll we do about your wife
But he shouted, Ah, Caramba
I think I'd better go
So he swam he swam across the river
And went back to Mexico

(Repeat 1st verse)
