One Of A Kind Lyrics

Andrés: Hey, ladies and gentlemen
The show is right this way
Right this way
Hey, we have prepared for you
A dazzling display
Right this way
So gather ’round, my friends
And here we go
Presenting the one and only Vivo!

Vivo: Is this thing on?
Gather ’round. Gather ’round. Let’s go!

Okay, attendance is low
But this is just a hiccup
Once we begin our show
Business is gonna pick up
We’re two blocks from la casa
It’s not a new scene
This is our spot in the plaza
Check out the routine

Ladies and gentlemen
I am Vivo the kinkajou
What’s a kinkajou?
Baby, I think you’re ready
To learn a thing or two
Watch me swing as I sing at you
Every single thing I can think of
To make you scream, whoo!

Andrés: Hey
Lo le lo lai
Lo le lo lai, lo le lo lei
Lai le lo lei
Vivo:That’s Andrés. He sings…

Both: Hey
Lo le lo lai
Lo le lo lai, lo le lo lei
Lai le lo lei 
Andrés: You and I, we are one of a kind
Both: Keeping time, every time 

Vivo: Oye! We are a part
Of a time-honored tradition
Of timing and precision
Your finest two musicians are top-notch
As we hopscotch the competition
The clock is tocking and ticking
I’m rocking this clave rhythm
Now watch

As people drop their dollars and pesos
We do this all day
Every day, so dame un beso
Give me a kiss, mwah!
Be right back
Now watch this 

Both: Hey
Lo le lo lai
Lo le lo lai, lo le lo lei
Lai le lo lei 

You and I, we are one of a kind
Keeping time, every time 

Vivo: Okay, you may be thinking
“What’s a kinkajou doing
Playing music in Cuba?
“Don’t you usually live
In the rain forest?”
Maybe I fell
In a shipping crate as a baby
Next thing I knew, I was somewhere new
I wasn’t singing the same chorus
All I remember was being hungry
And running from somebody even hungrier
Chasing me up this very tree
But guess who came
To the rescue with his tres?
Andrés, yes
And he blessed me with his melody

Andrés: Where did you come from, chiquito?
Ah! You really love music, don’t you?
Come down from the tree
You can stay with me
Mmm, but what will your name be?
You’re so full of music and life,
and I have the perfect name for you.

Vivo!
Vivo: And if y’all like that
Won’t you pass the hat?
Right along like that
Won’t you pass the hat?
Yeah, if y’all like that
Won’t you pass the hat?
It’s Vivo
I’m faster than your average cat

Andrés and Vivo: And if y’all like that
Won’t you pass the hat?
Right along like that
Won’t you pass the hat?
Yeah, if y’all like that
Won’t you pass the hat?
Vivo: Yeah, I’ve adapted to my habitat

Andrés and Vivo: You and I, we are one of a kind
Andrés: Keeping time 
Vivo: Keeping time 
Andrés: Right on time 
Vivo: Right on time 

Andrés and Vivo: Hey! 
Lo le lo lai
Lo le lo lai, lo le lo lei

Crowd: We all like that
So we pass the hat
Right along like that
So we pass the hat

Andrés and Vivo: You and I, we are one of a kind 
Crowd: They are one of a kind
Andrés and Vivo: Keeping time, every time
Right on time
Crowd: Lai lo lei lo lai
Lo lei lo le lo le lai
Lo lai
Andrés: Right on time!
