Pachalafaka

Pachalafaka, pachalafaka
They whisper it all over Turkey
Pachalafaka, pachalafaka
It sounds so romantic and perky
Oh, I know that phrase
will make me thrill always
For it reminds me of you, my sweet
just the mention of
that tender word of love
gives my heart a jerkish, Turkish beat

I won’t say c’est bon
or l’amour toujours
For they can’t express what I’m feeling
Even maresydoats or
other foreign quotes
don’t seem to be quite so appealing
But pachalafaka! pachalafaka!
takes me back with you to passionate desert scenes
and it’s there we’ll stay
till the very day
we find out what pachalafaka means
we find out what pachalafaka means!
