Glenn Miller

Glenn Miller - Conchita, Marquita, Lolita, Pepita, Rosita, Juanit

rate me

(Herb Magidson, Jule Styne)

(vocals: Marion Hutton, Tex Beneke & the Modernaires)

He was a handsome young Irish lad

She was a Mexican beauty

It was fiesta and I might add

Love was doing its duty

His Irish heart went bing-o when he saw the rose of Juarez

Conchita Marquita Lolita Pepita Rosita Juanita Lopez

"Oh, you're a lovely thing-o,

For me there's but one girl", he said,

"Conchita Marquita Lolita Pepita Rosita Juanita Lopez"

Mandolins began to play

And her lips were there to kiss

As we danced I heard him say,

"New Jersey was never like this!"

The bells began to ring-o

And they rode away on a mule

To prove I'm not jokin'

If you're in Hoboken

Drop in for a minute and you'll

Meet Conchita Marquita Lolita Pepita Rosita Juanita O'Toole

There's Little Theresa, Maria, Elisa

And sure and begorry

The rest of the story is Patsy and Molly and Mike

There's Jose and Pancho and Pedro and Sancho

To be sure when they're seen they'll be wearing the green

'Tis Tommy and Timmy and Spike

That's right!

The bells began to ring-o

And they rode away on a mule

To prove I'm not jokin'

If you're in Hoboken

Drop in for a minute and you'll

Meet Conchita Marquita Lolita Pepita Rosita Juanita O'Toole!
