"South of the Border" is a 1997 song released by Robbie Williams, the third single from his 1997 debut album "Life Thru a Lens". The song became a commercial flop in the United Kingdom only reaching fourteen on the singles chart, his only single to miss the top ten until "Sin Sin Sin" in 2006.

Robbie Williams described this single as "One of the best, so much better than Angels". Music critic Joe Garvey said "Love it!" in music magazine NME.

According to his home page, at the very last second, Williams changed his mind and made this his single. This explains why the video is a little incohesive and mostly a performance shoot.

When the single was released and failed to make a real impact in the charts, many thought this was the end of Williams.
