Dozens of girls[guys] would storm up; I had to lock my door, Somehow I couldn't warm up To one before. What was it that controlled me? What kept my love-life lean? My intuition told me You'd come on the scene. Lady[Baby], listen to the rhythm of my heartbeat, And you'll get just what I mean. Embrace me, My sweet embraceable you. Embrace me, You irreplaceable you. Just one look at you - my heart grew tipsy in me. You and you alone bring out the gypsy in me. I love all The many charms about you; Above all, I want my arms about you. Don't be a naughty baby, Come to papa - come to papa - do! My sweet embraceable you. I love all The many charms about you; Above all, I want my arms about you. Don't be a naughty baby, Come to papa - come to papa - do! My sweet embraceable you. ***** SPANISH VERSION: Abrázame, tú, mi dulce y abrazable. Abrázame, tú, mi insustituible. Sólo mirarte y mi corazón se alegra dentro de mí. Tú y sólo tú sacas la gitana que hay en mí. Amo todos los muchos encantos que te rodean. Sobre todo quiero mis brazos sobre ti. No seas malo, cariño, ven a mí, ven a mí, vamos, tú, mi dulce y abrazable. Amo todos los muchos encantos que te rodean. Sobre todo quiero mis brazos sobre ti. No seas malo, cariño, ven a mamá, ven a mamá, vamos, tú, mi dulce y abrazable. (Contributed by Emiliano M.A. - January 2006) *****
