Verse:
I dream of a pret -ty brown -hair'd maid in Spain.
Who fans all the sparks of love in -to a flame.
I wish I could be with her a -gain.
In that sun -ny land where they play love's sweet game.
 
Chorus:
A -ma -po -la my pret -ty A -ma -po -la,
You are the sweet -est of all girls in sun -ny Spain.
And with you dear be -neath the skies of blue dear,
A -cross the rumb -ling o -cean we can both re -main.
A -ma -po -la my lov -ing A -ma -po -la,
I'm try -ing to for -get you but in vain.
A -ma -po -la A -ma -po -la,
You're the sweet -est lit -tle girl in sun -ny Spain.
