This one's called
Now for you
Downtown samba

Canal Street's where we dance
We do the rhumba, samba
The city's hot, we're almost naked
It's a scandal
Night's still young
We do the samba with the congo warrior

Downtown samba
Downtown samba

Hey you over there
You shouldn't dance alone
Watch me come on closer
Cause I am the one
To dance with you
All night long
I'm dancing like a mambo
Go go go for sambo
Dancing, dancing, dancing
Over there, mister
Come see, you'll see
So dance the tango, tango
