Perry Como ~ Wanted
Pa-paya Mama
 
Pa-paya mama, pearl of the deep blue sea 
tell your pa pa-paya 
you're comin' home with me . . . yip!
 
My sweet pa-paya mamma wears a bamboo skirt
She dances barefoot an' her feet don't hurt
We drink pa-pays by the moonlit shore 
And when we kiss she hollers "More, More, More!"
 
Pa-paya mama, pearl of the deep blue sea
Tell your pa pa-paya, you're comin' home with me! ( Yip! )
 
I came to Cuba for a holiday,
pa-paya mama took her heart away
Vacation's over and it's time to go, and when we kiss she hollers "No, No, No!"
 
Pa-paya mama, pearl of the deep blue sea
Tell your pa pa-paya, you're comin' home with me! ( Yip! )
 
< instrumental break > 
 
Pa-paya mama, pearl of the deep blue sea 
tell your pa pa-paya 
you're comin' home with me . . . yip!
 
My island queen I'll build a hut for you
The floors an' doors will be the best bamboo 
And 'neath the Louisiana moon above 
We'll sip pa-paya and we'll love, love love!
 
Pa-paya, pa-paya, pa-paya, paya, paya
pa pa pa-paya! 
 
In time we'll raise a little family
To play beneath the new pa-paya tree 
We'll send your papa fifty-cent cigar 
'Cause he's a proud pa-paya grand-pa-pa!
 
Pa-paya mama, pearl of the deep blue sea
Tell your pa pa-paya, you're comin' home with me! 
Pa-paya mama ( Yahoo! ) pearl of the deep blue sea
Tell your pa pa-paya, you're comin' home with me! ( Yip! )
 
Pa-paya, pa-paya, pa-paya!
