What can I say to you, Bonita, what magic word would capture you
Like a soft salacious mist you are, Bonita, you fly away when love is new
What do you ask of me, Bonita, what part do you want me to play
Shall I be the clown for you, Bonita, I will be anything you say
Bonita, don't run away, Bonita

I love you, I tell you, I love you, I love you, Bonita
If you love me, life would be beautiful, Bonita
I love you, I tell you, I love you, I love you
If you love me, life would be beautiful, Bonita
