The Lyrics

Well, the city lights are burning bright,
The trade winds are a-blowin' in
Next year I'm gonna move to Lima town
Though I tried the best I could
My love life hadn't been too good
But that changed when I went to Lima town

There's nothing quite as dandy
As the scenery of the Andes
It really made me want to stay around
I'll have to tell my next of kin
Next year I'm gonna pack it in
And take a plane that's flyin' to Lima town

Oh, Lima town, oh, Lima town
Next year I'm goin' to Lima town
Oh, Lima town, oh, Lima town
Next year I'm goin' to Lima town
(musical interlude)
Oh, Lima town, oh, Lima town
Next year I'm goin' to Lima town
Oh, Lima town, oh, Lima town
Next year I'm goin' to Lima town

Took a bus through Ayacucho
The hairpin curves were mucho
Sometimes I thought the bus would hit the ground
But my girlfriend was beside me
And though the trip it tried me
She's a damn good reason to move to Lima town

It rains in San Antonio
And everyone wants money, oh,
Gold-diggers in this city do abound
But my new love's a good one
And even though I could run
I'll do the right thing and move to Lima town

Oh, Lima town, oh, Lima town
Next year I'm goin' to Lima town
Oh, Lima town, oh, Lima town
Next year I'm goin' to Lima town
Next year I'm goin' to Lima town

I enjoyed Peru-sing this one. Inca-dinca-doo, a-cha-cha-cha.
