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

I get out here, Buenos Aires!
Stand back! You oughta know what you're gonna get in me
Just a little touch of star quality

Fill me up: with your heat, with your noise, with your dirt; overdo me!
Let me dance to your beat, make it loud, let it hurt; run it through me!
Don't hold back, you are certain to impress
Tell the driver this is where I'm staying

Hello, Buenos Aires!
Get this! Just look at me: dressed up, somewhere to go
We'll put on a show!

Take me in at your flood, give me speed, give me lights; set me humming!
Shoot me up with your blood, wine me up with your nights; watch me coming!
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 what you're gonna get in me:
Just a little touch of star quality

And if ever I go too far
It's because of the things you are
Beautiful town, I love you
And if I need a moment's rest
Give your lover the very best
Real eiderdown and silence

You're a tramp, you're a treat, you will shine to the death; (you are shoddy!)
But you're flesh, you are meat, you shall have every breath (in my body!)

Put me down for a lifetime of success
Give me credit; I'll find ways of paying
Río de la Plata!
Florida! Corrientes! Nueve de Julio!
All I want to know!

Stand back, Buenos Aires!
Because you oughta know what you're gonna get in me:
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of star quality!
