My friends, I extend felicitations

To our South American relations

May we never leave behind us

All the common ties that bind us

130 million people send regards to you

And before I return

There's one thing you can do

Come on and sing

The chica-chica-boom-chic

That crazy thing

the chica-chica-boom-chic

Chic, chic, boom

Chic, chic, chica-boom

Brazilians found the chica-chica-boom

They like the sound

of the chica-chica-boom-chic

Boom, chica-boom

Chica-boom, chica-boom

It came down the Amazon

From the jungle

Where the natives greet

everyone they meet

Beatin' on a tom-tom

Boom, chica-boom

Boom, boom, boom, boom-boom

- It don't make sense

the chica-chica-boom-chic

But it's immense

the chica-chica-boom

Chica, chica, chica-boom

That's all you've got to say

To chase the jinx away

- Chica, chica-boom

- Chica, chica-boom

Chica, chica-boom, chic

- What woman at what front table?

Besides, I never saw her before.

That wasn't a "hotel lobby" smile I was

giving her. My smile belongs to my public.

She's a customer, and she's entitled to it

like every other pretty girl...

I mean every other customer.

I was not with her or anybody else

last night. I was home in bed by 12:30.

- Oh, yeah?

- Yeah. I gotta get a new mattress.

Senhoras e senhores...

for an americano to be received like this

here in Rio is most gratifying.

I thank you.

Immediately after the next number...

I'd like to impersonate for you that celebrated

figure of Rio, that cavalier of the boulevards...

the one and only

Baron Manuel Duarte.

Senhorita Carmen...

She just finish her solo.

- That's good. She still mad?

- She's always mad.

- How's she coming up the stairs?

- Three at a time.

She's mad, sweet girl.

That's a good shot. Someday you're

gonna miss my head and hit that mirror.

Then think of all the bad luck you'll have.

Listen, listen, listen. I've been tryin'

to teach you English for six months.

You'll never learn unless you speak it.

And you can't speak it when you get excited.

English isn't that kind of a language.

So don't get excited!

Yeah, there. That's it.

Now, say what you're gonna say in English.

- Okay. You is a low-down, no-good ham.

- Are a low-down, no-good ham.

You are a low-down,

no-good ham.

That's fine.

That's fine.

You are a low-down,

no-good ham.

Perfect, perfect.

That's perfect.

Senhor, senhor.

Obrigado.

The package

is for Senhor Martin.

Uh, just a little cod-liver oil.

I'm a little run-down from all this night work.

- Night work, eh?

- You want me I should hit her on the head?

Ouch! Ooh, ouch!

You grass in the snake.

Now look what you done, you little jaguar.

You ripped me to shreds.

Get me some iodine, Alfonso,

before fever sets in.

Oh, Larry, why you don't tell me,

Larry? So beautiful.

What a woman. What a woman. You know,

little turtle, that was supposed to be a surprise.

Oh, Larry.

- I am so sorry, Larry.

- Yeah, naturally.

- Beat me. Kill me.

- Later. Remind me, will you?

Oh, my terrible temper.

I should not lose him.

You haven't lost him, baby.

He's still there. All he wants is a break.

- Oh, I am bad, bad, bad.

- Yeah, bad and beautiful.

And after all, maybe it, uh...

- Maybe it was a little bit my fault.

- What you mean?

- Well, maybe I did smile at that girl a little.

- Oh, so you admit her?

No, no, no. I haven't

admitted her yet. I said "maybe. "

You know who just came in?

Baron Duarte.

Baron Duarte?

- Good evening, Baroness. Good evening, Baron.

- Good evening.

This way, please.

This is a great honor, Baron.

I hope this table is satisfactory.
