Story

Back in 1999 when Ricky Martin was the rage, I caught a live TV special of Ricky in concert and when it was over, fresh from the Latin experience--I picked up my acoustic guitar and wrote this song! Dana Fehr, the young engineer at Signal Sound Studios in Quakertown(now a San Diego resident), told me this was his favorite track on my CD--and he was more of a "grunge rocker!" It's the only tune the band recorded LIVE in the studio without a "click track"(which gives the drummer a uniform beat similar to a metronome)...for recording buffs--the song was also recorded in B flat minor and mechanically slowed down to A minor for the recording to accomodate the sax lead--this has been a very fun song to perform live over the years and a real crowd fave!

Lyrics

SENORITA TELL ME WHY Senorita tell me why you cry? Did your man leave you behind without a reason why? Senorita tell me why you cry? You are much too lovely to be hung up on this guy Senorita let me stop on by Let me wipe away the tears Oh won't you let me try? Senorita dance with me tonite I'll replace your pain with laughter It will be alright--it will be alright Chorus: Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha, Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha, Senorita can't you feel the pulsing salsa beat? Let us dance into the morning Feel the summer heat--summer sweat so sweet Senorita tell me why the tears? Did your man fill up your mind with many senseless fears? Senorita tell me why the tears? Are you sad because you had invested all those years? Senorita let me stop on by I will take away your pain oh won't you let me try? Senorita dance with me tonite I'll replace your tears with laughter It will be alright--it will be alright (Chorus) (saxophone lead) Senorita let me stop on by Let me wipe away your tears Oh won't you let me try? Senorita dance with me tonite I'll replace your pain with laughter It will be alright--it will be alright It will be alright--it will be alright!
