Cheek to Cheek

By Lowell George - Van Dyke Parks - Kibbe

from the performance of Harry Nilsson on the 1981 Mercury Records album: Flash Harry

Rose-oh-ose-ah-rita

I laid on your beach

Dreaming and drinking Tequila

I came all the way from Marina Del Rey

On a plane yesterday

Through the gray L A air

(Chorus)

Cheek to cheek to cheek ... Chiquita ita

Yo soy amoroso

What could be wrong with the hombre who sings solo?

barama ree (spanish anyone?)

giddily for ya (?)

(whistling)

Rosa-

rita

Forget that border check please

You won't have to sneak

Two or three times a week

And your green card, la ma tarjeta verde, may never be strong

Because you've got my heart on permanent loan

Cheek to cheek to cheek ... Chiquita ita do do dah

Yo soy amoroso

What could be wrong with the hombre who sings solo?

barama ree (?)

carady for yee (?)

Ayayayaya
