The Lyrics

Here's my parody of mambo #5

1 2 3 4 5
Everybody in the car so c'mon let's ride
to the revival theater 'round the corner
the ladies say they'd rather see Brad Pitt, but me, I'm never gonna
understand today's cinematic scene
I miss the vintage heroes of the silver screen
Like GABLE, MACRAE, BOGIE and SLY
Those guys are studly and that ain't a lie
So make fun of me, tell me I'm out of date
Maybe I was just born too late
But here are the guys from the movies whom I think are handsome
They set my heart dancin'!

REFRAIN:
A little bitta KIRK as Spartacus
A little bitta ROCK, he sure fooled us
A little bitta RUDOLF, sheik of desire
A little bitta PAUL, eyes of sapphire
A little bitta CHARLIE in Gaslight
A little bitta TYRONE, and his swordfights
A little bitta LARRY Olivier
A little bitta DUKE, he saved the day

You can say my heroes are yesterday's news
as you praise Mr. Pitt and you praise Mr. Cruise
I don't care, what ya all say
Ya can't beat the leading men of yesterday
You can say, whatever ya please
I love those classic movies, men, and memories
MAMBO #5-PLEX!!!

REFRAIN:
A little bitta MARLON in Streetcar
A little bitta STEVE REEVES, muscle star
A little bitta JOHNNY, jungle lord
A little bitta HARRISON "Indiana" Ford
A little bitta handsome TONY QUINN
A little bitta dashing MR. FLYNN
A little bitta CARY, he had class
A little bitta FRED, he could dance real fast

INSTRUMENTALIA

ACTION!
ROLL 'EM!
MAMBO #5-PLEX!!!

REFRAIN:
A little bitta FRANKIE, he could croon
A little bitta GARY, at High Noon
A little bitta DUSTIN, as the college grad
A little bitta SPENCER, gold-haired lad
A little bitta REDFORD, our boy Bob
A little bitta AL as the man from the mob
A little bitta BUSTER, he starred as Flash
A little bitta BURT and his mustache

REFRAIN:
A little bitta BOGIE, with an attitude
A little bitta CLARK as that Southern dude
A little bitta SEAN as the Master Spy
A little bitta CHRISTOPHER, super guy
A little bitta GORDON, musical man
And there's that other GORDON, he's Tarzan
A little bitta ARNOLD, so muscular
A little bitta SLY, pec-tacular!

All these studly movie stars
Hollywood's finest indeed by far
They've got style, they've got spark
on that screen of silver in the dark
MAMBO #5-PLEX!
