Goin' to Acapulco

I'm going down to Rose Marie's

She never does me wrong.

She puts it to me plain as day

And gives it to me for a song.

.

It's a wicked life but what the hell

The stars ain't falling down.

I'm standing outside the Taj Mahal

I don't see no one around.

.

Goin' to Acapulco

Goin' on the run.

Goin' down to see fat gut

Goin' to have some fun.

Yeah

Goin' to have some fun.

.

Now, whenever I get up

And I ain't got what I see

I just make it down to Rose Marie's

'Bout a quarter after three.

.

There are worse ways of getting there

And I ain't complainin' none.

If the clouds don't drop and the train don't stop

I'm bound to meet the sun.

.

Goin' to Acapulco

Goin' on the run.

Goin' down to see some girl

Goin' to have some fun.

Yeah

Goin' to have some fun.

.

Now, if someone offers me a joke

I just say no thanks.

I try to tell it like it is

And keep away from pranks.

.

Well, sometime you know when the well breaks down

I just go pump on it some.

Rose Marie, she likes to go to big places

And just set there waitin' for me to come.

.

Goin' to Acapulco

Goin' on the run.

Goin' down to see some girl

Goin' to have some fun.

Yeah

Goin' to have some fun.
