OYE ISABEL (Rod Hodges)

Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say
Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say

Your daddy don't like me
I could tell from the very fist day
Yeah but Isabel I want you
Gonna love you anyway
That's why I'm singing

Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say
Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say

Tu dices que es muy terco y tiene su
Opinion yo soy terco tambien
Y te compuse esta cancion
Para ti vidita mia

Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say
Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say

Your daddy don't think
That I'm good enough for you
But Isabel te amo
With a love that is deep and true
I'm gonna love you with all my heart

Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say
Oye, Isabel, don't listen to the things your papa say

BOOM BOOM BOOM (Rod Hodges)

He walked the street to the corner liquor store
Got some ciagarettes and wine and he backed out the door
It didn't work out quite like he thought it would
Now he's back page news down in the neighborhood

And it's boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom all night long
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom all night long

She's up late staring at the TV all alone
Got the front light on for a man who ain't coming home
Baby in the bedroom starts to cry
The sound of the street is her only lullaby

And it's boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom all night long
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom all night long

Downtown, Uptown, cruisin' for a thrill
Nothin' to lose and a whole lotta time to kill
She's up late staring at the TV all alone
Got the front light on for a man who ain't coming home

And it's boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom all night long
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom all night long

LOCO (J. René Coman)

I'm goin' crazy waiting for you
You make me crazy with the things that you do
I've been searching around all over town
For somebody just like you
Somebody just like you

I'm goin' crazy you're looking so fine
You make me crazy cause you won't be mine
I can't leave you alone
I've got to get you at home
And love you till the end of time
Oh I love you till the end of time

Loco, loco, loco, loco

Loco, loco, loco, loco

So baby hear what I say
I love you baby so let's run away
I'll make your dreams come true
Oh I'm in love with you
Together we will always stay
Yes together we will always stay

Loco, loco, loco, loco

EL ORANGUTAN (traditional)

El Orangután
Y la Orangutana
El Orangután
Y la Orangutana

Estaba el Orangután
Meciéndose en una rama
Estaba el Orangután
Meciéndose en una rama

Y llegó la Orangutana
Y le cogió la banana
Y llegó la Orangutana
Y le cogió la banana

El Orangután
Y la Orangutana
El Orangután
Y la Orangutana

LA VANIDOSA (Rod Hodges, Marisa Rodriguez)

Tu actitud niña fresa no va conmigo
Mas por bonita los güeyes salen contigo
Pero los años te dirán mamacita
Como las flores lo bonito se marchita

A mí me dices que no soy de tu altura
Y mí amor ya lo tiraste a la basura
Y aunque comparo con la tu dalia carita
como las flores lo bonito se marchita

Para viejos todos vamos derechito
Nadie se escapa de esa triste realidad
La juventud es el tesoro mas bonito
Y nunca mueren los amores de verdad

Eres muy joven y por esa te perdono
Pero el día que te saquen de tu trono
Comprenderás muy bien mamacita
Como las flores lo bonito se marchita

translation:

VANIDOSA (THE VAIN ONE)

Your stuck up attitude doesn't suit me at all
Though because you are pretty all the fools adore you
But the years tell you Honey
Like a dying flower beauty fades away

You tell me that I'm not good enough for you
My love you've thrown it in the trash
And though I compare your pretty face to the dahlia
Like a dying flower beauty fades away

We all grow old someday
No one escapes this sad reality
Youth is a precious treasure
But true love never dies

I forgive you because you're so young
But on the day you step down from your throne
You'll truly understand that
Like a dying flower beauty fades away

ANGEL (Rod Hodges)

He drew tatoos for his friends
They'd sit around and get real stoned
And he fought with guys twice his size
So he wouldn't feel so alone

Angel
They said it was a shame
Angel
They loved him just the same
Angel
They shut him out
They said you had a mean streak in your heart

He had the virgin on his back
And one that said I love you
And he never learned to read or write
I guess he figured what's the use

Angel
They said it was a shame
Angel
They loved him just the same
Angel
They shut him out
They said you had a mean streak in your heart

Well I'd rather die standing
Than to live on my knees
And with the way things go
I might not make seventeen

Angel
They said it was a shame
Angel
They loved him just the same
Angel
They shut him out
They said you had a mean streak in your heart

[repeat]

MY GIRLFRIEND IS A WAITRESS (Rod Hodges, Joe Cabral)

My girlfriend has a job down at the local cafe
Serving hotcakes 'n coffee 'n fried eggs every day
Some people are cool but some are rude
They do nothing but complain
Then my baby comes home and she drives me insane

My girlfriend is a waitress
My girlfriend is a waitress
Treat her right
My girlfriend is a waitress
My girlfriend is a waitress
I love her and I'm gonna pick her up from work tonight

The money that she makes doesn't go too far
She's got to split it up with the guy behind the bar
The regulars get on her nerves
They treat her like a slave
The kitchen's always yellin' at her baby come and get this plate

My girlfriend is a waitress
My girlfriend is a waitress
Treat her right
My girlfriend is a waitress
My girlfriend is a waitress
I love her and I'm gonna pick her up from work tonight

If I had a million dollars I tell you just what I'd do
I'd buy a '66 Fury in your favorite color baby blue
I'd tell your boss that you quit your job
I'd tell him where to go
And then we'd drive south honey and we'd head down to Mexico

My girlfriend is a waitress
My girlfriend is a waitress
Treat her right
My girlfriend is a waitress
My girlfriend is a waitress
I love her and I'm gonna pick her up from work tonight

LA TENTACIÓN (J. René Coman, Rod Hodges)

I love your smile, they way that you move
But my desire is sweet and it's cruel
I know it's wrong, there's so much to lose
'Cause it can't be now and it can't be you
So baby please don't get so close
I'm not that strong
'Cause when we touch I start to feel
La Tentación

Te podría abrazar, te podría sentir
Pero sabes bien, te vas a arrepentir
Necesito amor, quiero tu querer
Mas sabemos bien, que no puede ser
Alejate no jueges con mí corazón
Porque si no nos va a matar
La Tentación


If I held you now it would be heaven for me
But I know this love it could never be
I need someone but I'm so afraid
That I'll live to regret this hurt that we've made
So baby please don't get that close
I'm not that strong
'Cause when we touch I start to feel
La Tentación

SOMEBODY HELP ME (Rod Hodges)

Woke up today
Clouds came rolling in
Tried to put a smile on my face
But the tears came down again

Somebody help me
Somebody help me
Somebody help me
I can't do it on my own

Last night when I laid down to sleep
I told myself I must be strong
But these thoughts keep haunting me
Don't know if I can make it on my own

Somebody help me
Somebody help me
Somebody help me
I can't do it on my own

Sometimes I think
That I don't need you by my side
But if I could just feel your touch
You know I could make it through the night

Somebody help me
Somebody help me
Somebody help me
I can't do it on my own

VEN A BAILAR (Rod Hodges)

Ven a bailar conmigo, Ven a bailar mi vida
Ven a bailar mamita porque tu eres mi consentida
Ven a bailar conmigo olvidate de tus penas
Mientras el mundo se vuelve loco
Baila conmigo morena

A veces en este mundo uno se siente solo
Y de ahí florece el canto que nos brinda un dulce consuelo

Ven a bailar conmigo, Ven a bailar mi vida
Ven a bailar mamita porque tu eres mi consentida
Ven a bailar conmigo olvidate de tus penas
Mientras el mundo se vuelve loco
Baila conmigo morena

A veces en este mundo vivimos con tanta pena
Que no vemos la luz del día y se olvidan las cosa buenas

Ven a bailar conmigo, Ven a bailar mi vida
Ven a bailar mamita porque tu eres mi consentida
Ven a bailar conmigo olvidate de tus penas
Mientras el mundo se vuelve loco
Baila conmigo morena

translation:

VEN A BAILAR (COME DANCE WITH ME)

Come dance with me
Come dance with me my love
Let's dance, you're my special one
Come dance, forget about your worries
As the world goes crazy
Dance with me my dark-eyed love

Often we feel lonely in this world
And from that blossom the songs that bring us sweet consolation

Come dance with me
Come dance with me my love
Let's dance, you're my special one
Come dance, forget about your worries
As the world goes crazy
Dance with me my dark-eyed love

Often in this world we live with so much trouble
We can't see the light of day and the good things are forgotten

Come dance with me
Come dance with me my love
Let's dance, you're my special one
Come dance, forget about your worries
As the world goes crazy
Dance with me my dark-eyed love

AS WE KISS GOODNIGHT (J. René Coman, Rod Hodges)

Slowly, clouds moving over the quiet sky
Slowly, you touch my face as we kiss goodnight
With thoughts of other nights like this
Slowly crossing my mind like your gentle kiss
These dreams I'll miss

Slowly, in the mirror you fix your dress
Slowly, my heart beats for your caress
With thoughts of other nights like this
Slowly crossing my mind like your velvet kiss
These dreams I'll miss

With thoughts of other nights like this
Slowly crossing my mind like your velvet kiss
These dreams I'll miss

HEY, SWEET DARLIN' (Rod Hodges)

Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'
Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'

Lying in this hotel smoking ciagarettes in bed
Your sweet magnolia trees are ease my aching head

Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'
Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'

I don't have much money or a place to call my own
But I've got this ticket south to your Southern arms

Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'
Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'

Hey hey, I'm on my way
Hey hey, I'm on my way

Lying in this hotel smoking ciagarettes in bed
Your sweet magnolia trees are ease my aching head

Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'
Hey hey, sweet darlin'
I'm on my way I hear you callin'
