Donkey Serenade
by Mario Lanza

There's a song in the air,
But the fair senorita
Doesn't seem to care
For the song in the air.

So I'll sing to my 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?
She listens carefully to each little word we play.
La bella senorita?
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 "e-e-aw!"
Senorita donkey sita, 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,
Tho' she may try to hide it,
She cannot deny,
There's a light in her eye.

Oh! the charm of her smile
So beguiles all who see her
That they'd 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 she'd 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,
You're the one for me.

You're . . . the one . . . for me!
