Puerto Rico You lovely island Island of tropical breezes Always the pineapples growing Always the coffee blossoms blowing Puerto Rico You ugly island Island of tropic diseases Always the hurricanes blowing Always the population growing (¡sí, Anita!) And the money owing (¡es verdad!) And the babies crying (¡cállate!) And the bullets flying (¡eso!) I like the island Manhattan Smoke on your pipe and put that in I like to be in America O.k. By me in America Ev'rything free in America For a small fee in America (¡ándale!) I like the city of San Juan I know a boat you can get on Hundreds of flowers in full bloom Hundreds of people in each room Automobile in America Chromium steel in America Wire-spoke wheel in America Very big deal in America (Ándale, pero suavecito con los chiquititos aquí!) I'll drive a Buick through San Juan If there's a road you can drive on I'll give my cousins a free ride How you get all of them inside? Immigrant goes to America Many hellos in America Nobody knows in America Puerto Rico's in America (¡Ándale Anita!) I'll bring a T.V. To San Juan If there's a current to turn on I'll give them new washing machine What have they got there to keep clean? I like the shores of America Comfort is yours in America Knobs on the doors in America Wall-to-wall floors in America (jajaja) (Otra vez, ahora la segunda) When I will go back to San Juan When you will shut up and get gone? (¡eso!) Everyone there will give big cheer Everyone there will have moved here (¡es verdad!)
