THE CARIOCA From the 1933 RKO movie "Flying Down To Rio" (Words : Gus Kahn / Music : Vincent Youmans, Edward Eliscu) Connie Boswell & Victor Young & His Orchestra - 1934 Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers Say, have you seen a Carioca? It's not a foxtrot or a polka It has a little bit of new rhythm, a blue rhythm that sighs It has a meter that is tricky A bit of wicked wacky-wicky But when you dance it with a new love, there's a true love in her eye You dream of a new Carioca Its theme is a kiss and a sigh You dream of a new Carioca When music and lights are gone we say goodbye Two heads together, they say are better than one Two heads together, that's how the dance is begun Two arms around you and lips, that's why I'm yours and you are mine And you are mine Now that you've done the Carioca You'll never care to do the Polka And then you'll realize the blue hula and bamboola are through Tomorrow morning you'll discover You're just a Carioca lover And when you dance it with each new love, there'll be true love just for you Now you'll dream of a new Carioca Its theme is a kiss and a sigh You'll dream of a new Carioca When music and lights are gone and we're saying goodbye Goodbye
