CARAMBA! IT'S THE SAMBA Edward Pola / Irving Taylor / George Wyle Peggy Lee w Dave Barbour & The Brazilians rec Nov 25th 1947 Los Angeles Tonight is my night out for dancing, There's a guy that I'm romancing, I hope he falls for me before the night is through. I can't wait till we start swaying, What the heck is that they're playing? Caramba! It's the samba, it's the one dance I can't do. You better play a rumba for me, 'Cause I know he will adore me When I begin to do a rumba shake or two. I am waiting on the floor now, Just another minute more now, Caramba! It's the samba, it's the one dance I can't do. When they play something dreamy, You will see me waltz away from everyone, And when I tango, All the gang go Off the floor to watch the fun! Aye! There must be a million Of the tunes that aren't Brazilian, So I can't understand why they don't play a few! Ah! The band's about to start now, There'll be music in my heart now, Caramba! It's the samba, it's the one dance I can't do. When they play something dreamy, You will see me waltz away from everyone, And when I tango, All the gang go Off the floor to watch the fun! Aye! There must be a million Of the tunes that aren't Brazilian, So I can't understand why they don't play a few! Ah! The band's about to start now, There'll be music in my heart now, Caramba! It's the samba, it's the one dance I can't do. Ho-ba! Ho-ba! (Contributed by Peter Akers - July 2008)
