Thread Name: Lyr Req: Cuánto le Gusta (R Gilbert, G Ruiz)
Subject: RE: Lyric req: Quanta la Gusta
As young kids, my father who is now 76, I'm now 53, taught me this cute song when I was a kid. Just this past Saturday, we were out to dinner with relatives with their very bright six year old daughter, Sara, who is as smart as a 10 yr. old.

At any rate, earlier on that day, I heard Sara singing different songs, old songs. I was surprised to hear the assortment of songs she was singing.   So, I thought I would like to pass on this cute ditty to her, Cuánto le gusta", Quanta la Gusta. Not sure of the spelling, however, I would prefer it be spelled Quanta la Gusta, as to how it sounds.

At any rate, I wanted to find the lyrics so that I could just cut and past opposed to having to type it up and to check the proper spelling to the song. Unfortunately, the websites that were mentioned to find the lyrics are no longer available. So, I am going to just continue to use as I was taught by my father.   It is similar to one that is posted already.

Here is how I was taught to sing Quanta La Gusta:

Quanta La Gusta, La Gusta, La Gusta, La Gusta, La Gusta, La Gusta, La Gusta   (REPEAT)

We gotta get goin', where we're going, what are we gonna do,
We're on our way to somewhere, the three of us and you.

What'll we do there, what'll we see there, what'll be the big surprise,

There may be senoritas with dark and flashing eyes.

We're on our way (clap, clap, clap, clap, clap)

Pack up your bags (clap, clap, clap, clap)

And if we stay, (clap, clap, clap, clap)

We won't come back, (clap, clap, clap, clap)

How can we stay,

We haven't got a dime,

but we're still gonna have a happy time.
