rio
moving on the floor now babe you're a bird of paradise 
cherry ice cream smile i suppose it's very nice 
with a step to your left and a flick to the right 
you catch that mirror way out west 
you know you're something special 
and you look like you're the best 

her name is rio and she dances on the sand 
just like that river twisting through a dusty land 
and when she shines she really shows you all she can 
oh rio rio dance across the rio grande 

i've seen you on the beach and i've seen you on tv 
two, of a billion stars, it means so much to me 
like a birthday or a pretty view 
but then i'm sure that you know it's just for you 

her name is rio and she dances on the sand 
just like that river twisting through a dusty land 
and when she shines she really shows you all she can 
oh rio rio dance across the rio grande 

hey now (wow), look at that, did he nearly run you down? 
at the end of the drive, the lawmen arrive, you make me feel 
                                        alive        alive        alive 

i'll take my chance, cuz luck is on my side 
i tell you something, i know what you're thinking 
i tell you something, i know what you're thinking 

her name is rio and she dances on the sand 
just like that river twisting through a dusty land 
and when she shines she really shows you all she can 
oh rio rio dance across the rio grande 

her name is rio, she don't need to understand 
i might find her if i'm looking like i can 
oh rio rio hear them shout across the land 
from mountains in the north down to the rio grande
