He Hasn’t Got a Thing to Sell lyrics

Song lyrics to He Hasn’t Got a Thing to Sell, Written by Sam Coslow, Performed by Carmen Miranda and Andy Russell in Copacabana

Carmen Miranda: He’s not a peanut vendor, no no
He’s not an old clothes mender, oh no
All señoritas would sigh
Whenever he passes by, ay, ay
He hasn’t got a thing to sell
He hasn’t got a thing to sell
He hasn’t got a thing to sell

Andy Russell: No umbrellas, no bananas…

Carmen Miranda: And no mandolins or violins or “pianas”
So if you hear him shout or yell
Or if you hear him ring your bell
He hasn’t got a thing to sell.

Andy Russell: No tomatas, enchiladas…

Carmen Miranda: And no rice or peas or coconuts or “potatas”

Andy Russell: But oh how I can make love …

Carmen Miranda: It sends me up to heavens above
Oh oh, you see what I mean?

Andy Russell: What you mean?

Carmen Miranda: My heart jumps like a Mexican bean

Carmen Miranda: He hasn’t got a thing to sell.

Andy Russell:  I haven’t got a thing to sell.

Carmen Miranda and Andy Russell: We haven’t got a thing to sell.

Andy Russell: No umbrellas, no bananas…

Carmen Miranda and Andy Russell: And no mandolins or violins or “pianas”.
