in these shoes lyrics – bette midler

“gentlemen, gentlemen please! senors, por favor!”

i once met a man with a sense of adventure.
he was dressed to thrill wherever he went.
he said, “let’s make love on a mountaintop,
under the stars on a big hard rock.”

i said, “in these shoes? what is this, the peace corps?”
i said, “honey, let’s do it here.”

so we’re sittin’ at a bar in guadalajara,
in walks a guy with a faraway look in his eyes.
he says, “i’ve got a powerful horse outside.
climb on the back, i’ll take you for a ride.
i know a little place we can get before the break of day.”

i said, “in these shoes? no way, jose!”
i said, “honey, let’s stay right here.”

no le gusta caminar.
no puede montar a cabailo.
? como se puede bailar?
es un escandalo!

then i met an englishman.
“oh,” he said, “are you american?
won’t you walk up and down on my spine?
it makes me feel strangely alive.”

i said, “in these shoes? oh, i doubt you’d survive.”
i said, “honey . . . let’s do it . . . hehehehe”

“let’s stay right here.”

no le gusta caminar.
no puede montar a cabailo.
? como se puede bailar?
es un escandalo!

no le gusta caminar.
no puede montar a cabailo.
? como se puede bailar?
es un escandalo!

no le gusta caminar.
no puede montar a cabailo.
? como se puede bailar?
es un escandalo!

no le gusta caminar.
no puede montar a cabailo.
? como se puede bailar?
