Lightly Latin - 1966

 

Pardon My English  ( Samba Torto )Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

When you said goodbye,
did I sit an' cry?
Wanna go an' die?
Oh! No Siree!

Made another wish . . .
get another fish!
Lot's of pretty fish . . .
are in the sea!

You think that you're my one and only . . .
Pardon my English,
I ain't lonely!

Ain't about to brood . . .
in a happy mood!
Even sat and booed . . .
your photographs!

Ain't a total wreck . . .
you can double check!
Stickin' out your neck . . .
is for giraffes!

So, if some night you want me baby . . .
I'll meet you face to face,
you can name the place!

I'll be in the pink . . .
I'll buy the drink!
After one or two . . .
I'll tell you why we're through!

Absolutely through . . .
I think!

< instrumental break >

You think that you're my one an' only . . .
Pardon my English,
I ain't lonely!

Ain't about to brood . . .
dream a happy mood!
Even sat and booed . . .
your photographs!

Ain't a total wreck . . .
you can double check!
Stickin' out your neck . . .
is for giraffes!

So, if some night you want me baby . . .
Meet you face to face,
you can name the place!

I'll be in the pink . . .
I'll buy the drink!
After one or two . . .
I'll tell you that I'm through!

Absolutely through . . .
I think!
