Verse:
Where is a home to com - pare with mine,
When the eve - ning shad - ows fall,
Where does the moon ne - ver fail to shine,
On the gar - den wall?
 
Chorus:
In My A - do - be Ha - ci - en - da,
There's a touch of Mex - i - co.
Cac - tus love - li - er than orch - ids,
Bloom - ing in the pa - ti - o.
Soft des - ert stars and the strum of gui - tars,
Make ev - 'ry eve - ning seem so sweet.
In My A - do - be Ha - ci - en - da,
Life and love are more com - plete.
