Subject: Lyr Add: BARCELONA (R Wallace, T Evans)
Barcelona a 'Nutty' Onestep in 6/8 time

BARCELONA
Words, Raymond Wallace. Music, Tolchard Evans. ©1926

Tender memories take me back to old Barcelona
And old sunny Spain, and old sunny Spain,
When my Italy call me back from Barcelona,
It make-a de pain, It make-a de pain,
Then I make a mistook, pop off, sling-a de hook
But I make-a de money, and I'm back again at last,
Hoke-a de poke, sorry I spoke.

CHORUS: I'm one of the nuts from Barcelona,
I plink-a de plonk, I casa-bionk,
I dance-a de dance with fine Polona,
She shake-a de hip, I get-a de pip,
Round at the bar I order wine,
Half-a de mo I'm feeling fine,
Light-a de fag, the old Woodbine,
Order a cab for half past nine.
I'm one of the nuts from Barcelona,
Where skies are blue as indigo,
Indigo—YES—indigo.

When the castanets start to play the old fandango,
I'm up in the, I'm up in the air,
When the orange trees in the grove
All get the pippo, I tear-a de hair, I tear-a de hair,
My stiletto I flash, one more lemonade and dash,
Oh I make de money fly, what you call tiddley-i
What you call twiddley bits, double or quits ... CHORUS

EXTRA CHORUSES
1. I'm one of the nuts from Barcelona,
I grow a moustache, it save me wash,
I stop at the best of swell hotels-o
I make-a de bet, I play-a roulette,
Make-a de fortune, in a tick-o
Shake-a de mitt with Duke de Bonce,
With-a the nibs, ice cream I lick-o
Honi-de soit, qui mal y pense,
I'm, one of the nuts from Barcelona,
Where skies are blue as indigo,
Indigo—YES—indigo

2. I'm, one of the nuts from Barcelona,
I change-a ma name in sunny old Spain,
I'm Mullagatawny,-Chatsby-Donah
I'm naturalised, I get a surprise
Go to a house, and the say excuse-a,
I want a nice big room for two,—
Somebody say, you back a loser,
Pardonnez-moi, you want-a de zoo
I'm, one of the nuts from Barcelona,
Where skies are blue as indigo,
Indigo—YES—indigo

3. I'm, one of the nuts from Barcelona,
I Toreador, in front and before,
I chase-a de bull around the arena,
I tackle his nibs, I tickle his ribs,
Wag-a de flag, he gets the wind up,
What you may call, climbs up the pole-
Jolly good jobs, my pants were pinned up
Knock-a me thro', my camisole,
I'm, one of the nuts from Barcelona,
Where skies are blue as indigo,
Indigo—YES—indigo
