lyrics

NOW I MET A LOVELY GIRL NAMED LOMA LINDA,
AT A BAR ON COLORADO BLVD.
SHE WAS SERVING DRINKS AND WAITING TABLES,
IN HER FLOWERED DRESS AND PURPLE LEOTARD
IT WAS HAPPY HOUR AT LOCO JOES CANTINA,
WHEN I ASKED HER FOR A DATE JUST ON A HUNCH.
LINDA SAID SHE'D MEET ME AFTER CLOSING.
BUT IMMIGRATION BEAT ME TO THE PUNCH.

LOMA LINDA I WILL WAIT FOR YOU I KNOW YOUR NOT TO BLAME,
EVEN THOUGH THE OWNER TOLD ME THAT WAS NOT YOUR REAL NAME.
YOU BLEW ME A KISS BEFORE THEY HANDCUFFED YOU IN SHAME.
NOW I'M DOWN IN SAN YSIDRO WAITING FOR YOU JUST THE SAME.

WELL I SAW LOMA LINDA IN THE MOONLIGHT,
ON A LADDER BY THE FENCE ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
SHE LOOKED LOVELY AS SHE CROSSED THE BORDER,
AND HIDING IN THE SHADOWS FROM THE LIGHT.
SHE WAS JUST A HUNDRED YARDS FROM MY TOYOTA,
WHEN A GUARD DOG GRABBED HER LEG AND BROUGHT HER DOWN.
THE BORDER PATROL JUST GAVE ME A WARNING,
BUT THEY SENT MY LOMA LINDA SOUTHWARD BOUND

LOMA LINDA I WILL WAIT FOR YOU I KNOW YOUR NOT TO BLAME,
EVEN THOUGH THE BORDER GUARDS
THEY SAY THAT'S NOT YOUR REAL NAME
YOU BLEW ME A KISS BEFORE THEY HANDCUFFED YOU IN SHAME,
NOW I'M STILL IN SAN YSIDRO WAITING FOR YOU JUST THE SAME.

NOW I GOT A LETTER FROM MY LOMA LINDA,
SAYS SHE HAS A COUSIN WHO'S A COYOTE.
HE SAYS HE CAN SNEAK HER ACROSS THE BORDER
THE ONLY PROBLEM IS A LITTLE FEE.
JUST A FAKE ID AND SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS,
THEN WE CAN BE TOGETHER SHE AND I.
PLUS MAMACITA AND HER ANCHOR BABIES,
I BURNED THE LETTER AND BEGAN TO CRY.

NOW I'M BACK AT LOCO JOES WITHOUT THE LOVE I LEFT BEHIND
I'M SORRY WHAT SHE THINKS OF ME OR THAT I'M SO UNKIND
BUT NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL YOU I CAN TELL YOU LOVE IS BLIND
CAUSE I'M IN PASADENA ----------- WITH LOMA LINDA ON MY MIND.

LOMA LINDA, LOMA LINDA, VOY A ESPERAR POR TI
