Note: This song is in the key of F, but starts with a Gm7 chord.
Tangerine, she is all they claim,
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame.
Tangerine, when she dances by,
Senoritas stare and caballeros sigh.
And I've seen toasts to Tangerine,
Raised in every bar across the Argentine.
Yes, she has them all on the run, but her heart belongs to just one,
Her heart belongs to Tangerine.
