"In a Little Spanish Town" is a popular song published in 1926. The music was written by Mabel Wayne, and the lyrics by Sam M. Lewis & Joe Young.
With Jack Fulton's vocals, the song was a 1926 hit for Paul Whiteman & his Orchestra as his recording topped the U.S. charts for eight weeks.
The song had continuing popularity for several decades and was covered in later recordings. Virginia O'Brien's recording (a zany version apparently taken from a live radio broadcast) can be found on a 1984 AEI LP, "Viriginia O'Brien Salutes the Great MGM Musicals." Bing Crosby covered it as a cha-cha, which can be found on the recording "Big Hits and Highlights of 1956, vol. 7," apparently produced by Blue Orchid in 2008. Herb Alpert recorded the tune for his 1967 album, Sounds Like....

Lyrics

In a little Spanish town it was on a night like this
Stars were peek-a-booing down
It was on a night like this
I whispered be true to me and she sighed si si si
Man the skies have turned to gray because we're far apart
Many moons have passed away and still she's in my heart
We made a promise and sealed it with a kiss
Ah, in a little Spanish town it was on a night like this


I whispered be true to me and she sighed oh si si
Man the skies have turned to gray because we're far apart
Many moons have passed away and still she's in my heart
We made a promise and sealed it with a kiss
In a little Spanish town it was on a night like this
In a little Spanish town it was on a night like this
In a little Spanish town it was on a night like this
