Thin Lizzy - Randolph’s Tango (Bob Harris Session, 1973)

The senorita took off
her bobby socks
She said she's gonna
wear a skirt that shocks
She's pulling out all the stops
To get her Randolph back again
Meanwhile Randolph
he's back at the ranch
He's getting ready for
tonight's song and dance
He's doesn't know
he doesn't stand a chance
His last affair will be
his last romance
The senorita will be there waiting
Don't go my Randolph
slow tango with me
Underneath the Latin moonlight
The danced and seen a
falling star in flight
To the strum of guitars
she held him tight
She wants her Randolph back again
Meanwhile it's worthwhile for
Randolph to wait
'Till he gets the nerve
then he won't hesitate
He doesn't know
but he's just bit the bait
He just asked if he
could make a date
The senorita will be there waiting
Don't go my Randolph
slow tango with me
The senorita's heart is in love
She wearing white tonight
looks as pure as a dove
She's thanking God and all the
heavenly stars above
Randolph's romance is back again
Meanwhile Randolph smiles and
says he'll give her ten
She doesn't come so
he just counts again
And he's been there since
he does not know when
He's thinks she's stood
him up but in the end
The senorita won't
keep him waiting
Don't go my Randolph
slow tango with me
Senorita dance cheek to cheek
We will dance off into the sky
The senorita took off
her bobby socks
She said she's gonna
wear a skirt that shocks
She's pulling out all the stops
To get her Randolph back again
Meanwhile Randolph
he's back at the ranch
He's getting ready for
tonight's song and dance
He's doesn't know
he doesn't stand a chance
His last affair will be
his last romance
The senorita will be there waiting
Don't go my Randolph
slow tango with me
Underneath the Latin moonlight
The danced and seen a
falling star in flight
To the strum of guitars
she held him tight
She wants her Randolph back again
Meanwhile it's worthwhile for
Randolph to wait
'Till he gets the nerve
then he won't hesitate
He doesn't know
but he's just bit the bait
He just asked if he
could make a date
The senorita will be there waiting
Don't go my Randolph
slow tango with me
The senorita's heart is in love
She wearing white tonight
looks as pure as a dove
She's thanking God and all the
heavenly stars above
Randolph's romance is back again
Meanwhile Randolph smiles and
says he'll give her ten

And he's been there since
he does not know when
He's thinks she's stood
him up but in the end
The senorita won't
keep him waiting
Don't go my Randolph
slow tango with me
Senorita dance cheek to cheek
We will dance off into the sky
