Andrews Sisters – The Donkey Serenade 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?
She listens carefully to each little tune you play
La bella senorita
Si, si, mi muchachito
She'd love to play 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

There's a light in her eye
Though she may try to hide it
She cannot deny
There's a light in her eye

Senorita, donkey's feet are
Not so fleet as a mosquito
But so sweet like my chiquita
You're the one for me

He's a mule, what a mule
But all that my darling can say

In his face is a dream
Like an angel that I saw
But all that my darling can say
Is hee-haw

He can try as he may
In his voice there is a flaw
But all that my handsome can say
Is hee-haw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w

There's a light in his eye
Though he may try to hide it
He cannot deny
There's a light in his eye

There's a song in the air
But the senor doesn't care
And I love him so
Even though he's just a mule
I get a great big kick from that Senor mule
Singing the donkey serenade
