DON’ T BLAME IT ON ME

You can blame it on Mexico, blame it on Tequila
Blame it on the worm in mescal
You can blame on Tecate, or ice cold Corona
Or blame it on Amanda's gals

A drunken weekend, down on the border
We were wild and free
You can blame it on Mexico, blame it on the water
Just don't blame it on me

Remember it was you, with that bright idea
Head south on a little road trip
Without a plan, or a map in our hands
A way to test our friendship

Maybe get a tattoo, to remind me of you
A simple display of our youth
With no idea, or an ounce of fear
We'd soon discover the truth

You can blame it on Mexico, blame it on Tequila
Blame it on the worm in mescal
You can blame on Corona or that pretty senorita
Who's dress you wore down the aisle

That little chapel and 50 peso bribe
Padre said "get down on your knees"
You can blame it on Mexico, or blame it on the water
Just don't blame it on me

Twenty years later, we're sitting on the beach
Soaking up the Mexican sun
Corona's ice cold and the Tequila's still gold
We laugh, at all we've done

I look at my tattoo, it reminds me of you
That night we first made love
You're still married to me and its easy to see
We're a match made in heaven above

But, you still blame it on Mexico, blame it on Tequila
You blame it on the worm in mescal
I blame it on the heat, cause I still don't remember
Ever taking those vows

Or that rundown hotel, where you tried to propose
You fell, getting down on one knee
You can blame it on Mexico, or blame it on the water
Just don't blame it on me

TAG:  You can blame it on Mexico, or blame it on the water
