You know my brother, Ooh, what a lover! All day he strums in his guitar; But he doesn't get far, For his senorita loves another! Play, play your song, Oh, stop your weeping! She'll hear your tune, la-la, la-la-la! So play on while she's sleeping! I-yi-yi-yi! Oh, don't you cry, da-doo-da-da! She'll hear your tune And come to you soon, So play on while she's sleeping! [Spanish lyrics] I, yi-yi-yi-yi, yi-yi! Da-doo-da-doo-da-doo-da, da-doo-da-doo! I, yi-yi-yi-yi! Let me confess what I feel for you. Let me confess that I love you, Let me profess I adore you; Senorita, wake up, wake up, wake up, Hear my serenade of love to you. I, si-si-si! Cielito lindo makes a beautiful sky, I-hi, oh what a guy1 Here I'm singing to her 'neath the beautiful sky, I-yi! (Contributed by Peter Akers - August 2009)
