Down in old Ti - jua - na town,  There's this hap - py honk - in' sound,
Some - thin' you just can't put down.  It's the world re - nown,  Ti - jua - na cab.  
So you're not im - pressed you say,  With a beat - up Chev - ro - let,  
But that driv - er man Jos - e,  Knows his way a - round,  Ti - jua - na town.  
Hey, ya wan - na swing,  Have your - self a fling,  
Meet some pret - ty thing?  Liv - in' like a king!  
Pict - ure post - cards "n" hot te - qui - la,
French per - fume from Ven - e - zu - e - la,
When your on a Ti - jua - na tax - i ride.
