Special thanks goes to Madi, and Arthur and Rosie for walking away from posting bail!! You're all so wise!!

I was shootin' dice, rakin' in the dough
And then I hear-r-rd the whistle blow
We started to run when a man in blue

Said, Señor, come with me ‘cause I want you!

So here we a-are in the Tijuana Jail

Ain't got no fur-r-ends to go our bail

So here we'll sta-a-ay ‘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 "hunderd" 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 fur-r-ends to go our bail

So here we'll sta-a-y ‘cause we can't pay
Just send our mai-i-il to the Tijuana Jail

  9. TOO funny, Anni. And your pictures are perfect!
    I loved this song when I was young. When I was 'approaching' middle age, I had a cassette tape of Kingston Trio songs. My youngest brother, who lived in Mexico 6 months a year until he reached high school, really hated the Tijuana Jail song - I'm not sure why - either because he thought it was derogatory about Mexico, or because the Kingston Trio didn't pronounce Tijuana correctly. Anyway, my cassette tape mysteriously disappeared!
    I must try to find a CD, but YouTube will do for now... it really got my toes tapping!
