  • Talk about my baby
    A little Latin Lupelu
    She's a hot footin' baby
    There ain't no dance she couldn´t do
    She's my groovy little baby
    A little Latin Lupelu

    A Bopa Bopa Lupelu
    A shake it, shake it, shake it, Lupe
    Wahtusi pretty baby
    C'mon and do the who-chee-coo
    Magic love, pretty baby
    A little Latin Lupelu

    And if you wanna do the twist
    The Lupelu can put it down
    If you Wah Wahtusi
    She's the best for miles around
    She's my mash potato baby
    A little Latin Lupelu

    A Bopa Bopa Lupelu
    A shake it, shake it, shake it, Lupe
    Wahtusi pretty baby
    C'mon and do the who-chee-coo
    Magic love, pretty baby
    A little Latin Lupelu

    One, one more time
    A shake it, shake it, shake it Lupe
    Wahtusi pretty baby
    C'mon and do the who-chee-coo
    Magic love, pretty baby
    A little Latin Lupelu

  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaMy fav of the guys tunes, am wondering if that is the Wrecking Crew playing on it.
  • Babbling Babette from Tulsa OkI still love this song by the Righteous Brothers. I also love the version by Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. Mitch was in fine voice on their single 45 rpm. I love how it was arranged. Their version is more of a party song & I love that!! I love the Righteous Bros. for their later hits, especially with Phil Spector.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 15th 1966, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels performed "Little Latin Lupe Lu" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    The following month on February 27th, 1966 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #88; and five weeks later on April 3rd, 1966 it peaked at #17 {for 2 weeks} and spent 9 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reaching #93 in Australia...
