Lyrics

1. Mama Paquita, Mama Paquita,
Mama Paquita, buy your baby a papaya,
A ripe papaya, and a banana,
A ripe banana that your baby will enjoy. Ma-ma-ma-ma
Mama Paquita, Mama Paquita,
Mama Paquita, buy your baby a papaya,
A ripe papaya, and a banana,
Let’s go to Carnival and dance the night a-way!

2. Mama Paquita, Mama Paquita,
Mama Paquita, buy your baby some pajamas,
Some new pajamas, a yellow blanket,
A yellow blanket that your baby will enjoy. Ma-ma-ma-ma
Mama Paquita, Mama Paquita,
Mama Paquita, buy your baby some pajamas,
Some new pajamas, a yellow blanket,
Let’s go to Carnival to dance the night away.
