Elvira
 
 

Elvira, Elvira
My heart's on fire for Elvira

Eyes that look like heaven, she's got lips like cherry wine
That girl can sure enough make my little light shine
Now I get a funky feelin' up and down my spine
'Cause I know that my Elvira's mine, mine, mine

Singin' Elvira, Elvira

My heart's on fire for Elvira

Singin' giddy up, a-oom poppa, a-oom poppa, mow, mow
Giddy up, a-oom poppa, a-oom poppa, mow, mow
Heigh-ho Silver, away

Tonight I'm gonna meet her at the Hungry House Cafe
I'm gonna give her all the love I can, you know I am
An' she's gonna jump and holler; I saved up my last two dollars
And we're gonna search and find us a preacher man

Singin' Elvira, yeah, yeah
Elvira, ooh
My heart's on fire for Elvira

Got another mow mow comin'

Giddy up, a-oom poppa, a-oom poppa, mow, mow
Giddy up, a-oom poppa, a-oom poppa, mow, mow
Heigh-ho Silver, away, yeah

Elvira, Elvira
My heart's on fire for Elvira

Singin' giddy up, a-oom poppa, a-oom poppa, mow, mow
Giddy up, a-oom poppa, a-oom poppa, mow, mow
Heigh-ho Silver, away
Whaddya all say?
Heigh-ho Silver, away, yeah

Lyrics by Dallas Frazier.
Recorded by The Oak Ridge Boys.
