Cuban Cabby song lyrics

Song lyrics to Cuban Cabby, written by James Cavanaugh, John Redmond and Nat Simon, performed by Desi Arnaz in the I Love Lucy episode, The Club Election

My horse and carriage is for hire, senor
For just as long as you desire senorita
You want to ride
Forget a manana and come to Havana with me
I’m the Cuban Cabby
I’m the Cuban Cabby

The taxi drivers drive you frantic, you know
Oh, but my rig is more romantic and so
You want to ride
A night full of splendor and you can depend upon me
I’m the Cuban Cabby
And I need dinero
(Money that is)
The moon is peepin’, the shadows creepin’
It’s time for riding through the park

A lovely night for lovers, the same as you two are
If you like music, I’ll give you music
As we go riding in the dark
I’ll sing a Spanish love song to the strings of my guitar

Ese lunar que tienes
Cielito lindo, junto a la boca
No se lo des a nadie
Cielito lindo, que a mi me toca
Ay ay ay ay, canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo los corazones
(Olé)

My horse and carriage is for hire, senor
For just as long as you desire senorita
You want to ride

The sweet senoritas and gay caballeros know me
I’m the Cuban Cabby and I know my business
And I mind my business
You want to ride
(The Cuban Cabby)
You want to ride
(Will make you happy)
You want to ride
