Things We Did Last Summer Lyrics by Vaughn Monroe

 

Things We Did Last Summer by Vaughn Monroe


THEY WERE DOIN' THE MAMBO
Vaughn Monroe
Words and music by Sonny Burke and Don Raye
I went a ridin home down to Santa Fe,
There's been a lot of changes since I been away
I went to have a dance at the old dance hall,
Where they were having a ball
CHORUS 1:
They were doin the mambo,
What the heck is the mambo
They were doin the mambo,
While I just stood around
I looked around the place for my best gal Flo
I asked a lot of people for my best friend Joe
Nobody seemed to know where my two friends were
Except that he was with her
CHORUS 2:
They were doin the mambo,
Well they called it the mambo
They were doin the mambo,
While I just stood around
I used to be a dance hall dandy
But it seems since I been gone
There's an awful lot of changes,
I don't know what's goin on
I got a big surprise on the patio,
I found my gal a huggin
With my best friend Joe
And when they turned around
And they looked my way
They smiled and shouted "Olay!"
CHORUS 2
I used to be a dance hall dandy
I knew all there was to know
I knew this away from that away,
But which way did they go
I figured it was time that I took a ride
But couldn't find my horse
Where I left him tied
He found a little filly that he liked a lot,
And you believe it or not
They were doin the mambo,
Even horses do mambo
They were doin the mambo, mambo
While I just stood around
