I like to hear Enrique laugh and laugh

‘cause all the neighbors could hear him.

I tell Sara, his wife, that Enrique laughs

con tanto gusto!  She says, “You mean

with great gusto, like in gust of wind.”

“No,” I say, “con tanto gusto like in

goose.”  She says, “No, like gust ‘cause

he laughs at Red Skelton in English.

When he laughs at Cantinflas, then its

“gusto.” So now, when I hear Enrique

laugh and laugh, I remember how Sara


me.  I don’t like to hear Enrique laugh no more.
