Lyrics THIS IS
THE SWEETEST LETTER
THAT I HAVE EVER READ.
IT WAS WRITTEN
BY MY SWEETHEART
AND THIS
IS WHAT SHE SAID.
IT READS,
MY DEAREST DARLING,
STILL LOVE YOU
FAITHFULLY
AND I HOPE
THESE FEW LINES
FIND YOU
STILL IN LOVE
WITH ME.
THE MORE
I READ THIS LETTER,
THE MORE
IT TOUCHES MY HEART.
RIGHT HERE SHE SAYS
DON'T FORGET HER
ALTHOUGH
WE'RE MILES APART.
SHE CLOSES OUT
BY SAYING,
I THINK
I'LL GO TO BED,
SO I'LL KISS THIS LETTER,
DARLING,
BUT I WISH IT WAS YOU
INSTEAD.

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.
