Lyrics
If your spirits have hit a new low
And they long to hit a new high
One little musical cocktail
Will lift them to the sky
Mix a jigger of rhythm
With the strain of a few guitars
Add a dash of the samba
And a few melodious bars

And then
And then
You take a spark of bossa
One fandero
Take a wiggle
You've got the fascinating rhythm of the samba
And if guitars are strumming
Birds are humming
Drums are drumming
Then you can blame it rhythm on the samba
For there's something about the beat you cling to
That's the type song you sing to
That's the kind of thing you swing to
When you get bounce with beat in your feet
When you're bouncing to the beat you're reeling
With the carioca feeling
But if you want to hit the ceiling
Here is all you have to do
You take a spark of bossa
One fandero
Take a wiggle
You've got the fascinating rhythm of the samba
