Sittin’ in the smokey lounge
of some run down hotel
you came breezin’ through the door
the music cast a spell
my feet were tapping rhythm
fingers popping fast
well I screwed up my courage
and said to you at last

Mambo Mama, come dance with me
You pretty little thing your lovin’ sets me free
Mambo Mama, come take my hand
If you feel it tonight I’ll be your mambo
I’ll be your mambo man

I couldn’t tear my eyes away
as we began to dance
you looked like the come on
in a crooked game of chance
the band was sweatin’ bullets
the stars in heaven fell
the devil must have turned you loose
like a bat right out of hell


I thought you were a good girl
but I was wrong
and now I sit and wonder if
I’ll make it to the dawn
I’d leave you if I could girl
but my heart’s flown
and I’ll look out for your love babe,
like a bad dog guards a bone
