“We Will Take You Off To The Caribbean. To The Land Of Cuban Hooker Shoes…”

- Marvin Gardens, 1974

“She had a big hat, my it was high

Had bananas and mangos all piled to the sky

And how she could balance them, I wouldn’t dare

‘Cause they don’t dance like Carmen nowhere…”

Marvin reflects on the banger track: “I loved Carmen Miranda before I knew her name. Her hat was filled with fruit piled up to the sky. I guess this song came out of my “Cuban period” when I first got to Key West and came in contact with the Latin passion for fun.”
