Senorita Ballerina


Senorita, I’m gonna throw you roses tonight
Ballerina, the prettiest thing this side of the night
Don’t you know I’d follow you wherever you go
Senorita Ballerina, you steal the show

Senorita, I’m gonna stand when the band starts to play
Ballerina, the grace you bring takes our breath away
Don’t you know I desire one, long look from you
Senorita Ballerina, you leave hungry eyes blue

You spin round, round, round, round
Tonight you dance for me

Senorita, I’m gonna throw you roses tonight
Ballerina, the sweetest thing this side of the night
Don’t you know I’d promise you wherever you go
Senorita Ballerina, you steal the show

You spin round, round, round, round
Tonight you dance for me

“When someone’s desire for someone they can never have becomes their obsession, but they display it with a devotion and honesty they could never deny. This song was originally recorded back in 2004 on the Celebrity Century as a ballad.”
