Donkey Serenade lyrics

Theres a song in the air,
But the fair senorita
Doesnt seem to care
For the song in the air.
So Ill sing to my mule
If youre sure she wont think that
I am just a fool
Serenading a mule.

Amigo mio, does she not have a dainty bray?
She listens carefully to each little word we play.
La bella senorita?
Si, si, mi muchachito,
Shed love to sing it too if only she knew the way.
But try as she may,
In her voice theres a flaw!
And all that the lady can say
Is e-e-aw!

Theres a light in her eye,
Tho she may try to hide it,
She cannot deny,
Theres a light in her eye.
Oh! the charm of her smile
So beguiles all who see her
That theyd ride a mile
For the charm of her smile.

Amigo mio, is she listenin to my song?
No, no, mi muchachito, how could you be so wrong?
La bella senorita?
Si, si, la senorita,
If she knew all the words,

Well, maybe shed sing along . . .

Her face is a dream
Like an angel I saw!
But all that my darlin can scream
Is: e-e-aw!
Senorita donkey sita, not so fleet as a mosquito,
But so sweet like my chiquita,
Youre the one for me.

Youre . . . the one . . . for me!
