Mate, Mate, Joy, Joy. Mate, Mate, Joy, Joy…

The Mate Joy song
(tune: “Monday, Monday” by the Mamas and the Papas)

pronunciation guide:
— bombilla – bom-bee-ya
— Mate – mah-tay

Here it goes….

Bah-da bah-bombilla
Bah-da bah-bombilla
Bah-da bah-bombilla…

Mate, Mate, so good to me.
Mate mornin’, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Mate mornin’, Mate mornin’ you can guarantee
That Mate drinkin’ will give you serenity

Mate, Mate, I just can’t pass
Mate, Mate, I do not think that you taste like grass
Oh Mate mornin’ you are a warming wonderful tea
Oh Mate, Mate, you rev me up and set me free

Every other drink, every other drink,
Every other drink in my cup is fine, yeah
But whenever Mate comes, but whenever Mate comes
A-you can find me flyin’ all of the time…

(Okay, maybe a bit too much Yerba Mate this morning)
