She’s A Latin From Manhattan lyrics

She’s A Latin From Manhattan lyrics — €“  lyrics by Al Dubin, music by Harry Warren

Fate sent her to me over the sea from Spain
And she is one in a million for me
I found my romance when she went dancing by
And she must be a Castillian, si, si
Is she from Havana or Madrid?
But something about her is making me doubt ‘er
I think I remember the kid, yeah!

She’s a Latin from Manhattan
I can tell by her “Man-ya-na”
She’s a Latin from Manhattan
But not Havana
Though she does the rhumba for us
And she calls herself Dolores
She was in a Broadway chorus
Known as Suzy Donahue

She can take her tambourine and whack it
But to her it’s just a racket
She’s a hoofer from Tenth Avenue

She’s a Latin from Manhattan
She’s a Forty-Second Streeter
She’s a Latin from Manhattan
Señorita Donahue

She can take her tambourine and whack it
But to her it’s just a racket
She’s a hoofer from Tenth Avenue

She’s a Latin from Manhattan
She’s a Forty-Second Streeter
She’s a Latin from Manhattan
Señorita Donahue

Velveeta!!
