  • Lyrics: MAGDELINA Down a dusty road he drove from Rancho del Sol, His work day done it was time to quench his thirst, Clinking glasses flamenco guitar filled the air, The cantina dimly lit he sits down at this bar in Mexico. Magdelina dances at midnight, with her turquoise skirt and jet black hair, Castanets she clasps in her hands as she spins and swirls, The man at the bar sits and stares, he's mesmerized by this girl. When he raises his glass to sip, dust falls from his blue denim shirt, Just a farm laborer on a ranch outside of town, Turning to watch this lovely young senorita, She's stamping her feet to the rapid rhythm. Magdelina dances at midnight, with her turquoise skirt and jet black hair, Castanets she clasps in her hands as she spins and swirls, The man at the bar sits and stares, he's mesmerized by this girl. Four thousand pesos he saved for the past three years, In a jewelry shop just down the road, A glass case holds a small diamond ring, He hopes they'll marry in a chapel in the spring. Magdelina dances at midnight, with her turquoise skirt and jet black hair, Castanets she clasps in her hands as she spins and swirls, The man at the bar sits and stares, he's mesmerized by this girl. The man at the bar sits and stares, he's mesmerized by this girl.
