Oh when the evening shadows fall
I am dreaming
Of a certain smile
A secret rendezvous
And when the day is past and gone
I'll come creeping
Down the dark end of the street
Again to you
In a dimly lit caf as we go dancing
I try to smile and hide a love that's true
Then they play a lovely tune as we're romancing
Then I can't pretend no matter what I do
Dark and different
So they tell me
It's forbidden
So they say
But I just tell them
We're so happy
She's my Filipino Dancehall Girl
Good friends have all withdrawn their salutations
Good neighbors pause when I come down the street
Preacher has a look of scorn on Sunday morning
And there's a frown on every face I see
Que Sera Sera the Bible tells me
Novus ordo seclorum so they say
But I just tell them "Adios Muchacho"
She's my Filipino Dancehall Girl
Then she whispers
While we're dancing
In a language soft and low
I just tell her "Darling I Love You"
You're my Filipino Dancehall Girl
(Aw Step On It!)
