Lyrics ALL MY BABY WANTS TO DO
IS THE MAMBO,
ALL MY BABY WANTS TO DO
IS THE MAMBO,
MORNING, NOON
AND NIGHT TIME TOO
IT'S THE MAMBO.

HE GOES
(Mambo rhythms/effects)
ALL THE TIME,
HE GOES
(Mambo rhythms/effects)
ALL THE TIME,
'CAUSE THAT MAMBO RHYTHM
FEELS SO FINE.

HE'S NEGLECTING OUR ROMANCE
FOR THE MAMBO,
HE'S NEGLECTING OUR ROMANCE
FOR THE MAMBO,
HE JUST LOVES THAT CRAZY DANCE
CALLED THE MAMBO.

MAMBO BABY,
MAMBO BABY,
OH, MAMBO BABY
I LOVE YOU SO.
BUT ME OR THAT MAMBO
HAS GOT TO GO.

THE ONLY THING
HE'S THINKING OF
IS THE MAMBO,
WHEN WE SHOULD
BE MAKING LOVE
IT'S THE MAMBO,
BUT ME OR THAT MAMBO
HAS GOT TO GO.

Lyrics I WROTE MY MOM A LETTER
AND THIS IS WHAT I SAID...

WELLA WELLA WELLA WELLA
WASHED ALL THE DISHES
AND I DID A LOT MORE,
I EVEN BOUGHT THE DINNER
AT THE GROCERY STORE.
AND NOW, MOM,
YOU'LL FIND THE KEY NEXT DOOR,
THIS LITTLE GIRL'S GONE ROCKIN'.
I LEFT SOME BISCUITS FOR THE PUP,
I PUT FRESH WATER IN HIS CUP.
AND NOW I'M OFF,
I'M GONNA LIVE IT UP,
THIS LITTLE GIRL'S GONE ROCKIN'.

WELL,
I'LL BE HOME ABOUT TWELVE TONIGHT,
AND NOT A MINUTE MINUTE MINUTE LATER,
DON'T FORGET THE FRONT DOOR LIGHT,
THAT'S ALL FOR NOW,
I'LL SEE YOU LATER,
MATER.

YOU'LL FIND
EACH THING THAT YOU WANTED DONE,
I'M OFF
TO MEET THAT SPECIAL ONE.
AND BOY OH BOY
WILL WE HAVE FUN,
'CAUSE THIS LITTLE GIRL'S GONE ROCKIN'.
