South Of The Border

The first of Robbie's releases to fail to reach the top 10 since his earliest Take That Days, South Of The Border signalled the beginning of the end for many a doubter, which only made what came next all the more spectacular...

South Of The Border

Lyrics

I know a freaky young lady
Name of Cocaine Katie
She makes my temperature freeze
She's got a blood red powder
When she gives a shout
She'll bring you to your knees
Well, we were being clever, playing God games forever
She said she only meant to please
But I'm someone's brother, got a father and a mother
You know I'm going to have to leave
South of the border
I think you oughta
South of the border
I think you oughta
'Cause you know you're gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there's no reprieve
There'll be tears on leaving
But there won't be no grieving
'Cause a city soon forgets
To me it's magic
To the landlord it's tragic
He's got another room let
There'll be the same old faces in the same old places
Where my youth was well misspent
But I tow the line and move the time
To a town called 'No Regrets'
South of the border
I think you oughta
South of the border
I think you oughta
?Cause you know you're gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there's no reprieve
'Cause you know you're gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there's no reprieve
