Jim Gach, BMI

On the Caribbean side of the Yucatan
Lies a tropical isle named Cozumel
Where I'm baking in the sun with my toes in the sand
Came here to escape my life for awhile.
A pretty senorita comes my way

"Buenos Dias, senor, Can I get you a drink?"
I say, "What would you suggest?" and she gives me a wink. Says

Chorus Mojito, Mojito From Cuba to Mexico
Mojito, Mojito The Caribbean way to go

Two Mojitos and I was dancing by the sea
Cha-cha to the rhythms of a mariachi band.
Singing Jimmy Buffet post Mojito number 3, After
four I was makin' Christmas angels in the sand.

" Ola, another Mojito, por favore."
I know I'll pay for this in the mornin'
But those minty lime Mojitos are just habit forming - so

Chorus

I seem to have let go all of my woes
Wind down the day - one more libation
Warm winds blow over Mexico
Time running out on this vacation

In a couple of days I'll be back in the States
Leaving the beaches and señoritas
But I can always return to this tropical place with a ...

Chorus X 2
La, la lala la la ...Mojito
