Fiesta
by
The New Little Princess* (2025)

[Chorus](keep repeating many times)
Fiesta! Fiesta! Come to the fiesta, baby!

And bring your heart!

Repeat many times: Everybody dancing, everybody singing
(Band: That's what we do!)

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Sure, why not? Let’s go pray!
First God, then be happy on Fiesta day! [

[Music stops]

God wants you to be happy on Fiesta day!
[a cappella]

[Music starts again]

[Chorus]

Jimmy comes all the way from the jungle
With his family to join the fun
Jenny comes all the way from her island
Not goin' home 'till the whole thing's done

[Music resumes]

Repeat many times: They play all day, they dance all day

Sing with the music, jump with the music

I don’t even know your name!

[Music stops]

Just sing with the music, jump with the music, yeah!
[a cappella]

[Music starts again for chorus]

[Musical interlude, led by trombone, conch shells, siseras (shakers) and different kinds of drums].

At first, Princess does electric piano improvisation, faster and faster with the other instruments then she starts singing, rolling out on her roller skates which she has just put on at the piano, after dancing and jumping with them, making a beat to the music as they bang on the wooden stage.

Princess sings, with all music stopped except percussion:

What you gonna do about this?
Sing to the music, jump to the music!
What you gonna do about this?
Dance to the music, jump to the music!
What you gonna do about this?
Sing to the music, dance to the music
Jump to the music, jump to the music!

[Musical interlude]

Jimmy gets up early
But now everyone has gone

Hey, Jenny! Where’s Jenny?
Nowhere to be found!

Hey, Jimmy! Where’s Jimmy?
Jimmy' s not around

Love in a minute (fiesta)
Don’t even know you’re in it (fiesta)
Gone in a minute (fiesta)
Live for the minute (fiesta!)

Fiesta! Fiesta!
Come to the fiesta, baby!
Fiesta! Fiesta!
Come to the fiesta!
Fiesta! Fiesta!
Come to the fiesta, baby!
And lose your heart!
