DOWN IN HAVANA

DOWN IN HAVANA
(To the tune of, “South of the Border,” by Jimmy Kennedy & Michael Carr (1939))

Down in Havana, in Cuba today
The cabbies drive classic cars.
Beneath the stars
Along the Bay.
The chicks, sly and tempting.
The men there to play.
Down in Havana, in Cuba today.

Obama is saying, let’s open the town.
Time to forgive the past,
The rum goes fast
When you’ve sorrows to drown.
Meanwhile, Fidel is smiling, and Raul seems so gay.
Down in Havana, in Cuba today.

First the mob made a deal with Batista
El-Presidente’ wore a green sash.
Cause for dollars he’d sell you his sister.
Throw in his brother for hard cash.

Up in Miami, you’ll hear people say
“Bring back democracy,”
But history, didn’t go quite that way
For they’ve had other dictators
Castro’s a replay.
Down in Havana, in Cuba today.
