  • Well I drove down to El Paso
    On my business
    Yeah I was just another executive
    Workin for the bank
    But when I 'crossed that border line
    I dropped my business
    And I wound up for three days
    In the Juarez tank

    Chorus:
    Cantina Carlotta lady
    After I met you
    Well I knew that I was ready
    To start something new
    So I dropped my Brook Brothers suit
    And all my fancy painted ties
    ahhhh Just for one night with Carlotta
    and her painted eyeee ... yi ... yi's

    And when I got out of jail
    I went lookin for Carlotta
    Yeah I needed some more of that sweet
    Affectionada
    But at the cantina they told me
    She's gone to Guadalajara
    And when I asked it she'd be back
    They just said ... d'nada
    ChorusYeah one night with Carlotta
    Ahhh uno noches Carlotta
    And her painted eyeee...yi ... eeeeeeeee
    yi yi yi yi yi
    yi yi,yi yi yi, etc.
