LAVERN BAKER lyrics - Manana

LAVERN BAKER
"Manana"
(Dave Barbour / Peggy Lee)

Hey, the faucet she is dripping and the fence, she's falling down
My pocket needs some money, so I can't go into town
My brother isn't working and my sister doesn't care
The car, she needs a motor so I can't go anywhere

Manana, manana, manana is soon enough for me

My mother's always working, she is working very hard
But every time she looks for me I'm sleeping in the yard
My mother thinks I'm lazy and maybe she is right
I'll go to work, manana but I gotta sleep tonight

Manana, manana, manana is soon enough for me

Oh, once I had some money but I gave it to my friend
He said he'd pay me double, it was only for a lend
But he said a little later, the horse, she was so slow
Why he give the horse my money is something I don't know

Manana, manana, manana is soon enough for me

My brother took a suitcase and he went away to school
My father said he only learned to be a silly fool
My father said that I should learn to make a chilly pot
But then I burned the house down, the chilly, she was too hot

Manana, manana, manana is soon enough for me
