Lyrics verse:
IN SOME CUBAN TOWN
YOU STOP
WATCHING AN OLD MAKER
OF SHAWLS:
A QUAINT LITTLE MAN
WHOSE GAY COLORED BAZAAR
STANDS NEAR THE WALLS.
HE SMILES
THROUGH HIS BEARD
AND SPINS
HEAVENLY DREAMS
FOR EV'RY MAID.
A SHAWL
IN HIS HAND,
HIS CALL
REACHES THEIR HEARTS
AS THEY PARADE.

Chorus:
MY SHAWL
PRETTY LADY,
TRY IT ON YOU.
BUY MY SHAWL
SPUN IN MAGIC,
WISHES COME TRUE.
IT'S GLORY
WEAVES A STORY
OF LOVE,
DREAMS OLD
BUT NEW.
MY SHAWL
BRINGS A ROMANCE
MAYBE FOR YOU.

Spanish Lyric:
verse:
A HAEN EL BATCY
ALLA
BAJO LA SOMBRA
DE UN PALMAR:

DE UN SON
CON UN RITMO
