Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

Oct. 16, 2009
To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;
and be sure to write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Miami Beach Rhumba lyrics

Does anyone know the Yiddish lyrics to Miami Beach Rhumba (music by Irving 
Fields, lyrics by Albert Gamse)? It starts something like this:

Gevolt hob ikh forn gor keyn Cuba
un ikh in Miami Beach geven
Un dos is gor nit vayt fin Cuba
Die Rhumba oy tantst men dort sheyn.

You can hear it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALc3UxRyxe0.
