I met a woman down in Mexico
Sweet as sugar with a heart made of stone
We drank tequila by the light of the moon
I didn't realize that she would be my ruin
She said she knew about the voodoo ways
And could make me love her till the end of my days
She lit a candle and turned around
And when she did my feet never touched the ground

She tried to say she was the last of her kind
She started to change I nearly lost my mind
I realized she had put a spell on me
Smelled the room smelled just like a honeybee
I looked around and my eyes grew wider then
I realized I was inside her spider den
I tried to run I never had a chance
She did her tarantula dance

You say its too fantastic that it cannot be true
But I say that can happen oh it can happen to you
One minute you'll be thinking that everything's fine
The next thing you know well you're there with your heart on the line

There she goes
There in the moonlight
Under the stars
Tarantula

Throughout the night I heard her call my name
Me like the moth drawn to the flame
Me like her spell with her magic ways
Made the minutes stretch into days
Me with her there and her lips on mine
I felt our bodies then our souls entwine
I tried to run but I never had a chance
She did her tarantula dance

You say its too fantastic that it cannot be true
But I say that can happen oh it can happen to you
One minute you'll be thinking that everything's fine
The next thing you know well you're there with your heart on the line

There she goes
There in the moonlight
Under the stars
Tarantula

When I awoke she had slipped away
I haven't seen her since that day
And now I search every where I go
For that sweet young girl from Mexico
I go from town to town with a story to tell
Of a girl breaking hearts with magic spells
They say she uses potions and evil chants
But I know it's just her tarantula dance

You say its too fantastic that it cannot be true
But I say that can happen oh it can happen to you
One minute you'll be thinking that everything's fine
The next thing you know well you're there with your heart on the line

There she goes
There in the moonlight
Under the stars
Tarantula
