DOWN ARGENTINA WAY

You'll find your life will begin
The very moment you're in Argentina
If you're romantic senor
Then you will surely adore Argentina
You'll be as gay as can be
If you will learn to "si si" like a Latin
For mister soon as you learn
Then you will never return to Manhattan.
When you hear "yo te amo"
You'll steal a kiss and then
If she should say "manana"
It's just to let you know
You're gonna meet again
I'll bet an old castanet
That you will never forget Argentina
Where there are rhumbas and tangos
To tickle your spine
Moonlight and music and orchids and wine
You'll want to stay down Argentina way.
