Never on Sunday - Melina Merkoyri/Nana Mouskouri/The Chordettes/Connie Francis/Eydie Gorme/Petula Clark

<Mouskouri sings the original greek lyric "Τα παιδιά του Πειραιά, Ta Paidia tou Peiraia" (The children of Piraeus) while Eydie Gorme does "I Love to Dance, but Never on Sunday">
Never on Sunday

Oh, you can kiss me on a Monday, a Monday, a Monday 
Is very, very good 
Or you can kiss me on a Tuesday, a Tuesday, a Tuesday 
In fact, I wish you would 
Or you can kiss me on a Wednesday, a Thursday, a 
Friday and Saturday is best 
But never, ever on a Sunday, a Sunday, a Sunday 
'Cause that's my day of rest 

Most anyday you can be my guest 
Anyday you say but my day of rest 
Just name the day that you like the best 
Only stay away on my day of rest 

Oh, you can kiss me on a cool day, a hot day, a wet day 
Whichever one you choose 
Or try to kiss me on a grey day, a May day, a pay day 
And see if I refuse 

And if you make it on a bleake day, a freak day or a week day 
Well, you can be my guest 
But never, ever on a Sunday, a Sunday, the one day 
I need a little rest 
Oh, you can kiss me on a week day, a week day, a week day 
The day to be my guest
Mama Teach Me to Dance

Mama, teach me to dance, mama, teach me to dance
Think of all the fun you had when you and dad would cut a rug
Then you'd kiss and you'd hug

Mama, show me the way, how to sway when they play
If I knew a step or two the same as you,
I'd have a chance for romance at a dance

Suppose I meet somebody very sweet
If he says, oh, I would love to dance with you
What do I do

Mama, teach me to dance, once I learn how to dance
You can leave the rest to me, and, never fear
You're gonna hear wedding bells, mama, dear

La-la-la-la-la-la-la Mama, quiero bailar
La-la-la-la-la-la-la Mama, quiero bailar
Think of all the fun you had when you and dad would cut a rug
Then you'd kiss and you'd hug

La-la-la-la-la-la-la mama, quiero bailar
La-la-la-la-la-la-la mama, quiero bailar
If I knew a step or two the same as you
I'd have a chance for romance at a dance

Suppose I meet somebody very sweet
If he says, oh, I would love to dance with you
What do I do

Mama, teach me to dance, once I learn how to dance
You can leave the rest to me, and, never fear
You're gonna hear wedding bells, mama, dear
Wedding bells, mama, dear
