He happened to meet her
A sweet senorita
One night at a gala fiesta
A picture in fine Spanish laces
With one of those pretty faces

The music and moonlight
The spell of a June night
The charm of an old Spanish setting
Brought romance in all it's glory
The star of sweet love's story

My-yi-yi-yi
He won my heart amigo
He said that he loved no one but me
So off to the chapel we go-o

My-yi-yi-yi
There is a part we will know-ow
He'll bring the ring
The choir will sing
So wish me like my amigo

The star of the sweet love's story

He won my heart amigo
He said that he loved no one but me
So off - to the chapel we go-o

My-yi-yi-yi
There is a part we will know-ow
He'll bring the ring
The choir will sing
The bells will ring a-ting-a-ling
So wish me luck amigo
