Papa Loves Mambo
 
< instrumental opening >
 
Unh!
 
Papa loves mambo!
Mamma loves mambo!
Look at ‘em sway with it,
Gettin’ so gay with it,
Shoutin’ Olé with it, Wow!
 
Unh!
 
Papa loves mambo! ( Papa loves mambo! )
Mamma loves mambo! ( Mamma loves mambo! )
Papa does great with it,
Swings like a gate with it,
He loses weight with it, Now!
 
He goes to, she goes fro,
He goes fast, she goes slow,
He goes left, an’ she goes right!
 
Papa’s lookin’ for Mamma,
But Mamma is nowhere in sight!
 
Unh!
 
Papa loves mambo!
Mamma loves mambo!
Havin’ their fling again,
Younger than spring again,
Feelin’ that zing again, Wow!
 
Unh!
 
Papa loves mambo! ( Papa loves mambo! )
Mamma loves mambo! ( Mamma loves mambo! )
Don’t play the rumba an’ don’t play the samba,
‘Cause Papa loves mambo, tonight!
 
Unh!
 
Papa loves mambo!
Mamma loves mambo!
 
< instrumental break >
 
Papa loves mambo!
Mamma loves mambo!
 
He goes to, she goes fro',
He goes fast, she goes slow,
He goes left, an’ she goes right!
 
Papa’s lookin’ for Mamma,
But Mamma is nowhere in sight!
 
Unh!
 
Papa loves mambo! ( Papa loves mambo! )
Mamma loves mambo! ( Mamma loves mambo! )
Havin’ their fling again,
Younger than spring again,
Feelin’ that zing again, Wow!
 
Unh!
 
( Papa loves mambo! ) Mambo Papa!
( Mamma loves mambo! ) Mambo Mamma!
Don’t play the rumba an’ don’t play the samba,
‘Cause Papa! Papa mambo, tonight!
 
Unh!
