What's New, Buenos Aires?

What's new Buenos Aires?
I'm new, I wanna say I'm just a little stuck on you
You'll be on me too...

Don't hold back, you are certain to impress
Tell the driver this is where I'm staying

Rio de la Plata
Florida, Corrientes, Nueve de Julio
All I want to know

Let me dance to your beat, make it loud
Let it hurt, run it through me.

And if ever I go too far
It's because of the things you are
I need a moment's rest

Hello Buenos Aires
Put me down for a lifetime of success
Give me credit, I'll find ways of paying

I get out here, Buenos Aires
Stand back, you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of star quality

Beautiful town, I love you

You fill me up with your heat, with your noise
With your dirt, you overdo me

Take me in at your flood, give me speed
Give me lights, set me humming

All I want is a whole lot of excess
Tell the singer this is where I'm playing

Stand back, Buenos Aires
Because you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of star quality

Listen, Evita, That was phenomenal! I totally believe in getting inspiration where you can and the photography truly captures and gets reciprocally underscored by the lyrics and the music in my head. Just as Beautifulas you are!
