WRONG.  I know what song you're talking about and can't find out about it either.



Lyrics included

"I took a little trip to Mexico" - "I found soul ... in old Mexico"  with a hilarious line about "up popped Pancho"  and

"I don't speak Spanish, but I sure can say 'Adios' ..."  followed by corny mariachi trumpet lines.



Sorry, I'm searching as well but this song is REALLY obscure and I only can remember one old friend who knows,

and he's disappeared.



Hope someone else who DOES know can add correctly to this thread.  Good luck.

Jay - the actual recording is by Lee Dorsey.  It's the flip side of "Workin' in a Coal Mine"  - it was written by Allen Toussaint.   Here it is:

Mystery solved.  I hope Carrie sees this.

Expertise

I don't claim to be an expert in anything, but I'll do my best to answer questions about Doo Wop, Rock & Roll, and R&B, and find lyrics, in the 50's, and 60. We very seldom know what the song is, and the artist, off the top of our heads. Remember, there are millions of songs out there. Therefore, we have to do research for your answer. The majority of the time, people send partial lyrics, and most of the time they're off in remembering the exact lyrics. All we can do to research a song like this is to enter the lyrics you provide into a search engine, and hope we come up with the song. Many time we don't come up with the answer, for lack of the proper information provided, BUT, not all songs and lyrics are on the Internet. Someone has to put them on. Also, I've found song titles with out lyrics, and a note saying that the artist or writer of the song chooses NOT to put the lyrics out on the Internet, for whatever reason they may have. We try our hardest to come up with answers for you. That's our pride, or at least it's mine. I like to help people, that's why I'm here, and I feel bad every time I can't answer a question.
