What's new Buenos Aires? 
I'm new--I want to say I'm just a little stuck on you 
You'll be on me too! 
I get out here Buenos Aires 
Stand back--you ought to know what'cha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of star quality! 
Fill me up with your heat, with your noise, with your dirt, overdo me 
Let me dance to your beat, make it loud. let it hurt, run it through me 
Don't hold back you are certain to impress
Tell the driver this is where I'm staying 
Hello Buenos Aires!
Get this--just look at me, dressed up somewhere to go 
We'll put on a show! 
Take me in at your flood, give me speed, give me lights, set me humming 
Shoot me up with your blood, wine me up with your nights, watch me coming 
All I want is a whole lot of excess 
Tell the singer this is where I'm playing 
Stand back Buenos Aires!
Because you ought to know what'cha gonna get in me 
Just a little touch of star quality! 
And if ever I go too far 
It's because of the things you are
Beautiful town--I love you 
And if I need a moment's rest 
Give your lover the very best 
Real eiderdown--and silence 
You're a tramp, you're a treat, you will shine to the death, you are shoddy
But you're flesh, you are meat, you shall have every breath in my body 
Put me down for a lifetime of success 
Give me credit--I'll find ways of paying 
Rio de la Plata! 
Florida!
Corrientes! 
Nueve de Julio! 
All I want to know! 
Stand back Buenos Aires! 
Because you oughta know what'cha gonna get in me 
Just a little touch of Just a little touch of 
Just a little touch of star quality!
