Barry Manilow – Hey Mambo lyrics

(with Kid Creole & the Coconuts)

BARRY:
Nobody knew who he really was
But they called him Mambo when he played
KID CREOLE:
He became the King King of Latin Swing
BOTH:
And oh, the music that he made

Hey Mambo
Did your mama teach you that
Hey Mambo
Did she know what she begat

KID CREOLE:
They used to come in their fancy threads
And he always turned them inside out
BARRY:
They would jam the floor
BOTH:
They would beg for more
BARRY:
And when they got it they would shout

Chorus

Take it away Do it again
Hey Mambo
