Come A Little Bit Closer - Jay & The Americans

Come A Little Bit Closer

Jay & The Americans

(Tommy Boyce - Bobby Hart - Wes Farrell, U.A. 759, 1964)

In a little café, just the other side of the border
She was just sitting there givin' me looks
That made my mouth water
So I started walking her way
She belonged to that man, José
And I knew, yes I knew I should leave
When I heard her say, yeah

Come a little bit closer
You're my kind of man
So big and so strong
Come a little bit closer
I'm all alone and the night is so long

So we started to dance
In my arms, she felt so inviting
That I just couldn't resist
Just one little kiss so exciting
Then I heard the guitar player say
Vamoos, José's on his way
Then I knew, yes I knew I should run
But then I heard her say, yeah


Then the music stopped
When I looked, the café was empty
Then I heard José say
Man you know you're in trouble, plenty
So I dropped my drink from my hand
And through the window I ran
And as I rode away
I could hear her say to José, yeah-yeah


La-la-la-la-la, la-la
La-la-la-la-la, la-la
Ho-ho, la-la
Ho-ho, la-la
Yeah-yeah, la-la
