Donkey Serenade

This song is by Gracie Fields and appears on the compilation Top Hits of the 1930's (2008).

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?
(BOY:) Que, esta?
(JONES:) She listens carefully to each little tune you play
(BOY:) Oh, la bella senorita
(JONES:) Si, si, mi muchachito
She'd love to sing 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
Is hee-haw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w
Senorita, donkey's feet are
Not so fleet as a mosquito
But so sweet like my chiquita
You're the one for me

There's a light in her eye
Though she may try to hide it, she cannot deny
There's a light in her eye
Oh, the charm of her smile
So beguiled Don Diego that he rode a mile
For the charm of her smile
Amigo mio, is she listening to my song?
(BOY:) Que, esta?
(JONES:) No, no, mi muchachito, how can you be so wrong?
(BOY:) Si, la bella senorita
(JONES:) Si, si, la senorita
She'd love to sing it too if only she knew the way
Her face is a dream, like an angel I saw
And all that my darling can scream
Is hee-haw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w
Senorita, donkey's feet are
Not so fleet as a mosquito
But so sweet like my chiquita
You're the one for me
Ole
