Tangerine, she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine, when she dances by
Senoritas stare and caballeros sigh

And I've seen toasts to Tangerine
Raised in every bar across the Argentine
Yes, she has them all on the run
But her heart belongs to just one
Her heart belongs to Tangerine

Tangerine, she is all they say
With mascaraed eye and chapeaux by Dache
Tangerine, with her lips of flame
If the color keeps, Louis Philippe's to blame

And I've seen clothes on Tangerine
Where the label says 'From Macy's Mezzanine'
Yes, she's got the guys in a whirl
But she's only fooling one girl
She's only fooling Tangerine
