    Lyrics

    ANITA (spoken)
    At home, at home. If it's so nice "at home" why don't you go back there?

    ROSALIA
    I would like to... Just for a successful visit.

    (sung)
    Puerto Rico
    You lovely island
    Island of tropical breezes
    Always the pineapples growing
    Always the coffee blossoms blowing

    ANITA
    Puerto Rico
    You ugly island
    Island of tropic diseases
    Always the hurricanes blowing
    Always the population growing
    And the money owing
    And the babies crying
    And the bullets flying
    I like the island Manhattan!
    Smoke on your pipe and put that in!

    GIRLS
    I like to be in America
    OK by me in America
    Everything free in America
    For a small fee in America!

    ROSALIA
    I like the city of San Juan

    ANITA
    I know a boat you can get on!

    ROSALIA
    Hundreds of flowers in full bloom

    ANITA
    Hundreds of people in each room!

    GIRLS
    Automobile in America
    Chromium steel in America
    Wire-spoke wheel in America
    Very big deal in America!

    ROSALIA
    I'll drive a Buick through San Juan

    ANITA
    If there's a road you can drive on

    ROSALIA
    I'll give my cousins a free ride

    ANITA
    How you get all of them inside?

    GIRLS
    Immigrant goes to America
    Many hellos in America
    Nobody knows in America
    Puerto Rico's in America

    ROSALIA
    When I will go back to San Juan

    ANITA
    When will you shut up and get gone?

    ROSALIA
    I'll give them new washing machine

    ANITA
    What have they got there to keep clean?

    GIRLS
    I like the shores of America
    Comfort is yours in America
    Knobs on the doors in America
    Wall to wall floors in America

    ROSALIA
    I'll bring a TV to San Juan

    ANITA
    If there's a current to turn on

    ROSALIA
    Everyone there will give big cheer!

    ANITA
    Everyone there will have moved here!
