The Tao Tao

Tao, tao, tao Chorus: Eeee

Hellooo brunette, you have made me fall in love. You have no idea
how much I like your dancing. Lean to the side, hold the partner tight,
graceously, concentrate, graceously.
In love with leaning to the side, enthused by the Tao tao tao,
aaaa tao tao tao, eee tao tao tao, and Tao tao
tao, ooo

They ask me everywhere for the Tao tao because
it's a song that has a sensual taste. And with my
brunette, I always dance securely because she likes
the way I dance the tao tao.

The tao tao, you dance like this, lean to the side and
curle up, first method, second
method, third method and where was I?

These expressions are slung from some hispanic country. The words omit the intervocalic "d" at the end. The words are:
enamorao = enamorado
bailao = bailado/baile
lao = lado
apretao, amañao, arrinconao, tumbao, amasisao (amacizao. It's spelled the way they pronounce it), acurrucao .... They all follow the same patron. Notice that, the idea, is to make them rhyme with the title. So, he is dancing the "Tao-Tao" and he is doing it:
" =a medio lao" = leaning to an side
"bien apretao" = holding the partner tight
"bien amañao" (con maña) =graceously
"arrinconao" = concentrating, ignoring the partner, by himself (?)
"tumbao" = rather crafty, sensualy
"amasisao" = secure/getting the knack
"acurrucao"=curled up

These words used here as local expressions, may have no meaning in other Spanish-speaking countries.

Cheers, all right! But it is not "I ask for the tao-tad" but "they ask me".
I don't think it makes much of a difference.
