Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo
Look at 'em sway with it
Gettin' so gay with it
Shoutin' "ole" with it
Wow (oh)

Papa loves mambo
(Papa loves mambo)
Mama loves mambo
(Mama loves mambo)
Papa does great with it
Swings like a gate with it
Evens his weight with it, now

He goes to, she goes fro
He goes fast, she goes slow
He goes left and she goes right
(Papa's lookin' for mama, but mama is nowhere in sight)

Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo
Havin' their fling again
Younger than spring again
Feelin' that zing again
Wow (oh)

Papa loves mambo
(Papa loves mambo)
Mama loves mambo
(Mama loves mambo)
Don't let her rumba and don't let her samba
'Cause papa loves mama tonight (oh)

(Papa loves mambo)
(Mama loves mambo)

(Papa loves mambo)
(Mama loves mambo)

He goes to, she goes fro
He goes fast, she goes slow
He goes left and she goes right
(Papa's lookin' for mama, but mama is nowhere in sight, oh)

Papa loves mambo
(Papa loves mambo)
Mama loves mambo
(Mama loves mambo)
Havin' their fling again
Younger than spring again
Feelin' that zing again
Wow, oh

(Papa loves mambo)
Mambo papa
(Mama loves mambo)
Mambo mama
(Don't let her rumba and don't let her samba)
'Cause papa
Loves a mambo tonight
