Mexican Souvenirs

[html5mp3small:6644]

One last look
Beneath the stars
Can’t you see me
Holding back my tears?

Though we part
Throughout the years
I won’t forget my
Mexican Souvenirs

I remember your laughter
And the fun
Holding your hand
Being warmed by the sun

Though they’re clay
They bring me cheer
I won’t forget my
Mexican Souvenirs

[SPOKEN WORD]
Por la última vez
Mírame bajo estrellas
No puedo mis
Lágrimas detener

Aunque lejos de ti
Al pasa los años
No me olvidaré de mis
Souvenirs Americanos

I remember your laughter
And the fun
Holding your hand
Being warmed by the sun

Though they’re clay
They bring me cheer
I won’t forget my
Mexican Souvenirs
I won’t forget my
Mexican Souvenirs
