  • Going loco down in Acapulco
    If you stay too long
    Yes, you'll be going loco down in Acapulco
    The magic down there is so strong

    Feel the pressure
    Your back's against the wall
    Love is gaining on you
    You're just about to fall
    If you're afraid to love
    Afraid to take a chance
    You better hide your feelings
    Get out while you can

    'Cause you'll be going loco down in Acapulco
    If you stay too long
    Yes, you'll be going loco down in Acapulco
    The magic down there is so strong

    You'll be pulling out your hair, drowning in despair
    With a whole lot of nothing on your way to nowhere
    Your search for paradise will come to an end
    When you realize what a fool you've been

    You'll be haunted by her face
    Missing her warm embrace
    Memories of loving her
    Holding her tight every night
    Was that the best part of your life?
    Hearing her voice soft and low
    Begging you to please
    Please don't go
    Don't go
    No! Don't go! Don't go!

    You can hear voices bleeding through those warm Latin nights
    Memories are lost and found
    Leaving broken hearts all over town, all over town

    'Cause you'll be going loco down in Acapulco if you stay too long

    Yes, you'll be going loco down in Acapulco
    The magic down there is so strong

    Going loco down in Acapulco
    If you stay too long
    Yes, you'll be going loco down in Acapulco
    The magic down there is so strong

    Going loco down in Acapulco
    If you stay too long Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
