Say, have you seen the carioca?
It's not a foxtrot or a polka
It has a little bit of new rhythm
A blue rhtthm that sights

It has a meter that is tricky
A bit of wicked wacky-wicky
But when you dance it with a new love
There's a true love in her eyes

You dream of a new Carioca
It's theme is a kiss and a sight
You dream of a new carioca
When music and lights are gone and we're saying goodbye

Two heads together, they say are better than one
Two heads together, that's how the dance's begun
Two arms around you and lips that sigh
I'm yours anda you're mine

While the carioca carries you away
While we carica till the break of day

Now that you've done the carioca
You'll never care to do the polka
And then you'll realize the blue hula anda bamboola are
Through

Tomorrow morning you"ll discover
You're just a carioca lover
And when you dance it with a new love
There'll be true love just for you

You'll dream of a new carioca
It's theme is a kiss and a sigh
You'll dream of a new carioca
When music and lights are gone and we're saying goodbye
When music lights are gone and we're saying goodbye
When music lights are gone and we're saying goodbye
