Song lyrics
ANITA (spoken)
At home, at home. If it's so nice "at home" why don't you go back there?

ROSALIA
I would like to... Just for a successful visit.

(sung)
Puerto Rico
You lovely island
Island of tropical breezes
Always the pineapples growing
Always the coffee blossoms blowing

ANITA
Puerto Rico
You ugly island
Island of tropic diseases
Always the hurricanes blowing
Always the population growing
And the money owing
And the babies crying
And the bullets flying
I like the island Manhattan!
Smoke on your pipe and put that in!

GIRLS
I like to be in America
OK by me in America
Everything free in America
For a small fee in America!

ROSALIA
I like the city of San Juan

ANITA
I know a boat you can get on!

ROSALIA
Hundreds of flowers in full bloom

ANITA
Hundreds of people in each room!

GIRLS
Automobile in America
Chromium steel in America
Wire-spoke wheel in America
Very big deal in America!

ROSALIA
I'll drive a Buick through San Juan

ANITA
If there's a road you can drive on

ROSALIA
I'll give my cousins a free ride

ANITA
How you get all of them inside?

GIRLS
Immigrant goes to America
Many hellos in America
Nobody knows in America
Puerto Rico's in America

ROSALIA
When I will go back to San Juan

ANITA
When will you shut up and get gone?

ROSALIA
I'll give them new washing machine

ANITA
What have they got there to keep clean?

GIRLS
I like the shores of America
Comfort is yours in America
Knobs on the doors in America
Wall to wall floors in America

ROSALIA
I'll bring a TV to San Juan

ANITA
If there's a current to turn on

ROSALIA
Everyone there will give big cheer!

ANITA
Everyone there will have moved here!
