The Carioca Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Say, have you seen a Carioca?
It's not a foxtrot or a polka
It has a little bit of new rhythm, a blue rhythm that sighs
Verse 2
It has a meter that is tricky
A bit of wicked wacky-wicky
But when you dance it with a new love, there's a true love in her eye
Verse 3
You dream of a new Carioca
Its theme is a kiss and a sigh
You dream of a new Carioca
When music and lights are gone, we say goodbye
Verse 4
Two heads together, they say, are better than one
Two heads together: that's how the dance is begun
Two arms around you and lips: that's why I'm yours, and you are mine
And you are mine
Verse 5
Now that you've done the Carioca
You'll never care to do the Polka
And then you'll realize the Blue Hula and Bamboola are through
Verse 6
Tomorrow morning you'll discover
You're just a Carioca lover
And when you dance it with each new love, there'll be true love just for you
Verse 7
Now you'll dream of a new Carioca
Its theme is a kiss and a sigh
You'll dream of a new Carioca
When music and lights are gone, and we're saying goodbye
Goodbye
