Letra de la canción
I went to Panama to find out why
It's called the tropic zone.
The senoritas there had so much charm,
They could even melt a heart of stone,
A hot tamale gal, she flashed me a smile,
And I lost my heart right then.
I thought I'd only stay
Down there for a day,
Now I think I'll never leave again.
In Panama those Panamamas,
They live the life of a beautiful dream.
Your life's a waste until you get a taste
Of the thrill that you get
From a tropical queen.
Now kindly get me straight,
I think they're great,
Those gals from Tennessee
But when they say, \"Si, si,\" in Panama,
Then the trill is really different to me.
Manana never comes down there
I live just for tonight.
I take her in my arms
Beneath the beautiful palms,
And it's heaven when I hold her tight.
I'm making memories
Sombreros, they fit me fine.
I know that pretty soon,
With that sweet chiquita of mine.
Out on the edge of town
We're gonna settle down
How happy we're gonna be.
It takes a deeper pot
From down old Panama
To catch a feller from Tennessee.
