    Act 1, Scene 2, Song 4

    The club was especially hot on that summer night and the driving rhythms of the music propelled more and more people on to the dance floor. Exhausted from the continuous dancing, Emilio, James and Ozzy decided to take a break for some water.

    “Man, it is hot out there.”
    “I know, just like all those lovely salseras.”
    “I hear that. Wouldn’t you agree, Emilio?”
    “You’re right, Oz, no argument here. But you know, what’s stopping you guys?”
    “Hah, the problem is I can’t decide on just one. And as for James, well…”
    “Hey!”
    “What’s going on? Come on, don’t hold back on me here.”
    “Well, what can I say, someone has captured me like no other.”
    “Yeah, and you’ll never guess who?”
    “Whoa! Come on, who is it?”
    “Let me tell you about her…”

    There’s this girl that drives me crazy
    When she walks by I get all worked up
    And I don’t know what to do with that woman
    Her mouth tastes like coconut candy
    And I like to kiss her little by little
    And I don’t know what to do with that woman
    Because she is so good and so pretty
    She is the medicine my body needs
    And there is only one like her
    To me she is worth a fortune

    She drives me crazy
    She drives me crazy
    And I don’t know what to do with that woman

    “Sounds like you’ve fallen, so who is this mystery woman?”
    “Well, let’s just say she’s no stranger…”
    “What’s that suppposed to mean?”
    “Haha, looks like someone is being a bit of a snoop.”

    I have a girl that drives me crazy
    Its as if I’ve won the lottery
    And I don’t know what to do with that woman
    If she looks at me my knees go weak
    And my body shakes like an earthquake
    And I don’t know what to do with that woman
    Because she is so good and so pretty
    She is the medicine my body needs
    And there is only one like her
    To me she is worth a fortune


    “Ok, I’m going crazy wondering who it is. Come on, aren’t you going to tell your best friend?”
    “Well, the fact you don’t know yet and Oz here does means you’re clueless. I guess I’ll have to let you in on it.”
    “Oh Emilio, sometimes you’re so caught up in your own world you don’t notice those around you.”
    “Fine, fine, who is it?”
    “You see that girl over there in the red top?”
    “You mean Kim?”
    “Ta-da!”
    “Since when?”
    “Hey sometimes things just happen.”

    If she asks me to dance
    I don’t know what to do
    And whenever I see her
    I don’t know what to do
    If she sends me an e-mail
    I don’t know what to do

    “Well man, that’s awesome…no point in keeping the ladies waiting. Let’s get back out there.”

    Sigan Bailando!
