Here sit, head in my hands, thinking about tomorrow
Wondering what life would be like living in Guadalajara.
I didn’t know, but I found out it is Mexico’s second largest city
And from all the pictures that I’ve seen, gosh it’s awfully pretty.
Guadalajara is a city known as Mexico’s pearl of the west,
Combining both modern and historic, to make this city the of the world’s best.
It is the birthplace of the Mariachi, and home of the Mexican hat dance,
Sounds like the kind of place I’d like to settle done in, if I ever got the chance.
Guadalajara is a city of monuments, parks and flowers, fountains and tree lined avenues.
And it has Cathedrals, Museums, Markets, Theaters and a zoo.
Doesn’t appear to me that Guadalajara lacks for anything to do.
With one of the world’s greatest climates, Guadalajara is said to be blessed,
The more I read, the more I study and the more time I invest,
I think that this might be my answer, of where to spend my last tomorrows,
A new beginning and an end, to memories of old past sorrows.
Yes here I sit, head in my hands, just thinking about tomorrow,
Maybe I should pack my bag and move to Guadalajara.
It has it all it seems to me, I’m not sure I could beat it,
I just need someone to share it with. I need a Guadalajara señorita.
