Mexican Divorce

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

Down below El Paso lies Juarez
Mexico is different, like the travel folder says
Cross the Rio Grande and you will find
An old adobe courthouse
Where you leave your past behind

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time, at all to get
A Mexican divorce

As I came home to this empty house last night
I looked at all the windows and I couldn't find one light

Found you on this road to Mexico
And now, my love, I'm pleading
Please, oh, please, don't go

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time, at all to get
A Mexican divorce

Finding love takes so long
Walking out must be wrong
It's a sin for you to get
A Mexican divorce

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time, at all to get
A Mexican divorce

One day married, next day free
Broken hearts for you and me
Takes no time, at all to get
A Mexican divorce
