Ad de Day

< instrumental opening > 
When those ships come quietly,
to anchor in that old Havana Bay . . .
forms of Cuban money divers
swim around the sides
as though at play!
It's there beginning of another business day . . .
In broken English this is what they sing and play,
Ad day, hey, ad de day . . .
Have you got a little coin to throw away?
Throw those those pennies, throw those nickels many times
We would love a silver dollar . . .
If you haven't got a silver dollar
How about dimes?
Ad day, hey, ad de day . . .
Oh we love our work no matter what the pay . . .

Always happy, always smilin', always gay!
You'll find your ears a ringin'
with a song we're always singin'
when you go away . . . when you go away!
