It Happened In Monterey

It Happened In Monterey
music by Mabel Wayne (left)
lyric by Billy Rose (right)

In my imagination
I'm finding consolation
Somewhere along the Rio Grande.
Sadly, I'm reminiscing.
Madly, again I'm kissing
Someone along the Rio Grande...

It happened in Monterey, a long time ago.
I met her in Monterey, in old Mexico.
Stars and steel guitars and luscious lips as red as wine,
Broke somebody's heart, and I'm afraid that it was mine.

It happened in Monterey, and without thinking twice,
I left her and threw away the key to paradise.
My indiscreet heart longs for the sweetheart that I left in old Monterey.
