Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
I remember a version we sang that went like this (but forgot some words at the end) Does anyone recognize this version and do they know the ending? It has been bothering me for years.

Down in Mexico
Where the peppers grow
There's a tune they know
Chiapanecas

They will dance and sing
Till the rafters ring
Clap their hands till they sting
Chiapanecas

And then with a merry sound
Swing their partners round
While the busy world
Hurrys by

Swaying to and fro
Down in Mexico
With a smile in each dark eye

Aye Chiapanecas aye aye (clap clap)
Aye Chiapanecas aye aye (clap clap)
Aye Chiapanecas aye aye (clap clap)
Aye Chiapanecas aye aye (clap clap)

Sing, Sing, Sing Chiapanecas
Dance, Dance, Dance Chiapanecas
Laugh, laugh, laugh and
you will see
How much fun it will be
Singing aye, aye, aye Chiapanecas
(forgot this part)

....as we sing
Chiapanecas and Clap! (clap clap)
