There's a song in the air But the fair senorita doesn't seem to care For the song in the air. Oh, I'll sing to the mule If you're sure she won't think that I am just a fool Serenading a mule. Amigo mio, does she not have a dainty bray? (BOY:) Que, esta? (JONES:) She listens carefully to each little tune you play. (BOY:) Oh, la bella senorita! (JONES:) Si, si, mi muchachito, She'd love to sing it too if only she knew the way. But try as she may, in her voice there's a flaw And all that the lady can say Is hee-haw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w Senorita, donkey's feet are Not so fleet as a mosquito But so sweet like my chiquita You're the one for me! There's a light in her eye Though she may try to hide it, she cannot deny There's a light in her eye. Oh, the charm of her smile So beguiled Don Diego that he rode a mile For the charm of her smile. Amigo mio, is she listening to my song? (BOY:) Que, esta? (JONES:) No, no, mi muchachito, how can you be so wrong? (BOY:) Si, la bella senorita! (JONES:) Si, si, la senorita, She'd love to sing it too if only she knew the way. Her face is a dream, like an angel I saw, And all that my darling can scream Is hee-haw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w Senorita, donkey's feet are Not so fleet as a mosquito But so sweet like my chiquita You're the one for me! Ole! (Contributed by Bill Huntley - December 2004)
