LYRICS
(Thanks to squeegeebeckenhiem to send me these!)
I was not born in sunny Hispania,
My father came from Rovno Gubernya.
But now I'm here, I'm dancing a tango;
Di dee di! Dee di dee di!
I am easily assimilated.
I am so easily assimilated.

I never learned a human language.
My father spoke a High Middle Polish.
In one half-hour I'm talking in Spanish:
Por favor! Toreador!
I am easily assimilated.
I am so easily assimilated.

It's easy, it's ever so easy!
I'm Spanish, I'm suddenly Spanish!
And you must be Spanish, too.
Do like the natives do.
These days you have to be
In the majority

Tus labios rubi
Dos rosas que se abren a mi,
Conquistan mi corazon,
Y solo con
Una cancion.

Mis labios rubi
Dreiviertel Takt, mon tres cher ami,
Oui ou, si si ja ja ja, yes yes, da da.
Je ne sais quoi!

Me muero, me sale una hernia!

A long way from Rovno Gubernya!

Mis/Tus labios rubi
Dos rosas que se abren a mi,
Conquistan mi corazon,
Y solo con
Una divina cancion.
De tus labios rubi!
Rubi! Rubi!
Hey!
