Managua Nicaragua Lyrics

Artist: Guy Lombardo
Album: Managua Nicaragua

Managua, Nicaragua
- words by Albert Gamse, music by Irving Fields
- as recorded in New York November 15, 1946 by Guy Lombardo
and His Royal Canadians

Managua, Nicaragua is a beautiful town
You buy a hacienda for a few pesos down
You give it to the lady you are tryin' to win
But her papa doesn't let you come in

Managua, Nicaragua is a heavenly place
You ask a seorita for a 'leetle' embrace
She answers you, "Caramba! scram-ba bambarito"
In Managua, Nicaragua, that's "No"

I have been to many tropic ports
I might include even Brooklyn
If you're ever feelin' out of sorts
I'd like to recommend a look in...

Managua, Nicaragua, what a wonderful spot
There's coffee and bananas and a temperature hot
So take a trip and on a ship go sailing away
Across the agua to Managua, Nicaragua, ol
Ol, ol
Across the agua to Managua, Nicaragua, ol

----- instrumental break -----

Managua, Nicaragua is a beautiful town
You buy a hosienda for a few pesos down
You give it to the lady you are tryin' to win
But her papa doesn't let you come in

Managua, Nicaragua is a heavenly place
You ask a seorita for a 'leetle' embrace
She answers you, "Caramba! scram-ba bambarito"
In Managua, Nicaragua, that's "No"

Every day is made for play and fun
'Cause every day is fiesta
And they work from twelve o'clock to one
Minus an hour for siesta

Managua, Nicaragua, what a wonderful spot
There's coffee and bananas and a temperature hot
So take a trip and on a ship go sailing away
Across the agua to Managua, Nicaragua, ol
Ol, ol
Across the agua to Managua, Nicaragua, ol

My spanish teach brought this song up in class, it's kinda catchy.

Great tune, very catchy, Love the rhythm wish I could find the music for it. My Church is doing a Caberet and the songs will be from different countries around the world.

I learned the words to this song (before Google) by playing the TAPE over & over, stopping, rewinding a thousand times! The tape was given to me by Ambassador Gutierrez, the U.S. Ambassador to Managua, so that I could learn the words to sing it at the embassy talent show I was organizing.

I learned this in Spanish. We are having a test on the countries and capitols of Spanish speaking countries. This song will make me never forget what the capitol of Nicaragua.

Didn't know the lyrics were ever in Spanish. I recall it for the late 40's. Quite popular at the time.

GREAT SITE AND KEEP UP THE PROFESSIONAL WORK............IT IS AWSOME!
by Jim Gerardi on 7/29/2012 5:19pm
Around 1948, my older brother had this song on a 78 rpm record, and we played it over and over. I came to this site to get the words because all I could remember were the first two lines. But the tune has stayed with me all these years.

I grew up in the 30's and 40's and was a big fan of all pop music. I can still sing many of
the songs, but only learned a couple. lines from "Managua etc." Thanks for the rest of it. I agree with Diana Schultz, "those were the real days" and real music.
by marty Bodner on 3/9/2015 8:27pm
The song was reflective of life back then. Calmer, more peaceful and easier to handle. THANKS !

I never dreamt when I was in high school in Harrison NY singing and dancing "Managua Nicaragua" that I would one day wind up living there from March 3 1960 to Nov. 3 1962. While I didn't live in an hacienda, I lived in a beautiful house with spacious grounds where the owner planted coffee seeds which when they became small trees were transplanted to his coffee plantation high up in the hills. I had the time of my life in Managua Nicaragua and cried when the plane took off for Miami. It was during the Cuban Missile Crisis and our plane was escorted into Miami Airport by a Navy Fighter Plane. A dramatic ending to a time I will never forget.
