Carmelita Dancing
theres nothing like the four winds when there blowin, theres nothing like the children when there growin, theres nothing sweeter than the roses in bloom except Carmelita dancing through the room... theres nothing like her red hair when its flowin, theres nothing like her strong legs once they're going, theres nothin brighter than the man in the moon except Carmelita dancing through the room... theres nothin like the smog in Pasadena, theres nothin like a fallen Senorita, theres nothin left out in a world of gloom except Carmelita dancin through the room
