Bruce on the artist

intro to the song

" Alright, let’s see what requests you got out there – give me a little beat there, Max…..alright, we got a real unusual one – hold on…hold on…keep that thing going, Max…hold on…the band will not be ready for this one…oh, they will not be ready…no (laughs in a sort of evil way J)…oh, it’s been many, many years…we’re gonna test them now…we actually have the lyrics on the back – that, that’s appreciated .... I appreciate when they put the lyrics to something we haven’t played in a long time on the back…alright, let’s see what you got…key of “E”…ready?…"

Lyrics

Talk about my baby
A little Latin Lupelu
She's a hot footin' baby
There ain't no dance she couldn´t do
She's my groovy little baby
A little Latin Lupelu
A Bopa Bopa Lupelu
A shake it, shake it, shake it, Lupe
Wahtusi pretty baby
C'mon and do the who-chee-coo
Magic love, pretty baby
A little Latin Lupelu
And if you wanna do the twist
The Lupelu can put it down
If you Wah Wahtusi
She's the best for miles around
She's my mash potato baby
A little Latin Lupelu
A Bopa Bopa Lupelu
A shake it, shake it, shake it, Lupe
Wahtusi pretty baby
C'mon and do the who-chee-coo
Magic love, pretty baby
A little Latin Lupelu
One, one more time
A shake it, shake it, shake it Lupe
Wahtusi pretty baby
C'mon and do the who-chee-coo
Magic love, pretty baby
A little Latin Lupelu
A little Latin Lupelu
A little Latin Lupelu
A little Latin Lupelu
