The Star Sisters - Stars on 45
(1983)






He was a famous trumpet man from old Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
He’s in the army now, a-blowin’ reveille
He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddelyada



And now three lovely ladies that are
sending GI’s hearts all over the World



Ai, ai, ai, ai, ai
Have you ever sing it in the tropics
Well, that thrilled the fool
With the Gaucha cool
Of the South American way, hey



Ai, ai, ai, ai, ai
Could you have ever kissed in the moonlight
If you never kissed
Who knows what you’ve missed
In the South American way



Bei mir bist du schön
Please, let me explain
Bie mir bist du schön means you’re grand



Bei mir bist du schön
Again I’ll explain
It means you’re the fairest in the land



I could say: “Bella, bella”
Even say: “Wunderbar”
Each language only helps me tell you
How grand you are



I’ll try to explain
Bei mir bist du schön
So kiss me and say you’ll understand



Okay guys, grab your gal and hit the floor
’cos here’s that beat, you’ve been waiting to swing to



Who’s the lovin’ daddy with the beautiful eyes
What a pair of lips, I’d like to try ’em for size
I’ll just tell him: “Baby, won’t you swing it with me”
Hope he tells me: “Baby, what a wing it will be”
So, I said politely: “Darlin’, may I intrude”
He said: ”Don’t keep me waitin’ while I’m in the mood”



In the mood
In the mood
In the mood
It didn’t take me long to say: “I’m in the mood now”



If you ever go down Trinidad
They make you feel so very glad
Calypso sing and make up rhyme
Guarantee you one real good, fine time



Drinkin’ rum and Coca-Cola
Go down Point Koomahnah
Both mother and daughter
Workin’ for the Yankee dollar



Oh, Tico Tico, tick
Oh, Tico Tico, tock
This Tico Tico, he’s the cuckoo in my clock
And when he says: “Cuckoo”
He means: it’s time to woo
It’s Tico time for all the lovers in the block
I’ve got a heavy date
A tete-a-tete at eight
So speak, oh Tico, tell me: is it getting late
If I’m on time, cuckoo
But if I’m late, woo woo
The one my heart is gone to, may not want to wait



In Spain they say: “Si, si”
In France you hear: “Oui, oui”
Every little Dutch girl says: “Ya, ya”
Every little Russian says: “Da, da”
Lala lala lala la dada dada
Dadada dada dada da
Dadada de de da da
Dede dadada
Dadada dadado dede
