"The Tijuana Jail" as written by and Denny Thompson....
We went one day
About a month ago (a-ha-ha)
To have a little fun (a-ha)
In Mexico
We ended up
In a gambling spot (oh yeah) a-ha-ha
Where the liquor flow-owed
And the dice were hot

So here we are
In the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends
To go our bail
So here we'll stay
‘Cause we can't pay
Just send our mail
To the Tijuana Jail

I was shootin' dice,
Rakin' in the dough (long green)
And then I heard
The whistle blow
We started to run
When a man in blue
Said, Señor, come with me
‘Cause I want you

So here we are
In the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends
To go our bail
So here we'll stay
‘Cause we can't pay
Just send our mail
To the Tijuana Jail

Just five hundred dollars
And they'll set us free
I couldn't raise a penny
If ya threatened me
I know five hundred
Don't sound like much
But just try to find
Somebody to touch

So here we are
In the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends
To go our bail
So here we'll stay
'Cause we can't pay
Just send our mail
To the Tijuana Jail

So here we are
In the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends
To go our bail
So here we'll stay
‘Cause we can't pay
Just send our mail
To the Tijuana Jail
