    Lyrics

    There's a song in the air
    But the fair senorita doesn't seem to care
    For the song in the air.
    Oh, I'll sing to the 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?
    (BOY:) Que, esta?
    (JONES:) She listens carefully to each little tune you play.
    (BOY:) Oh, la bella senorita!
    (JONES:) 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 hee-haw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w
    Senorita, donkey's feet are
    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
    Though she may try to hide it, she cannot deny
    There's a light in her eye.
    Oh, the charm of her smile
    So beguiled Don Diego that he rode a mile
    For the charm of her smile.
    Amigo mio, is she listening to my song?
    (BOY:) Que, esta?
    (JONES:) No, no, mi muchachito, how can you be so wrong?
    (BOY:) Si, la bella senorita!
    (JONES:) Si, si, la senorita,
    She'd love to sing it too if only she knew the way.
    Her face is a dream, like an angel I saw,
    And all that my darling can scream
    Is hee-haw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w
    Senorita, donkey's feet are
    Not so fleet as a mosquito
    But so sweet like my chiquita
    You're the one for me!
    Ole!
