  • Lyrics
  • When my Baby, When my baby smiles at me I go to Rio De Janeiro
    My-oh me-oh
    I go wild then I have to do the samba, then la Bamba
    Now I'm not the kind of person with a passionate persuasion for dancin' or romancin'
    But I give in to the rhythm and my feet follow the beat of my heart

    When my baby, when my baby smiles at me
    I go to Rio, De Janeiro
    Me salsa fellow
    When my baby smiles at me
    She shines the lanterns of my life
    And I am free at last what a blast!

    When my baby, when my baby smiles at me
    I feel like Tarzan of the jungle
    There on the hot sand
    And in the bungalow
    While monkeys play above-a
    We'll make love-a

    Now I'm not the type to let vibrations
    tickle my imagination easily
    You know that's just not me
    But I turn into a tiger every time I'm beside the one I loveWriter/s: ADRIENNE ANDERSON, PETER W. ALLEN
