The winning entry

Helena Paparizou, "Mambo"

Love has got me caught up, 
Drives me to a door, 
Every little piece inside is knocking at your door. 
Tell me, tell me, tell me 
Can't you see the signs? 
Written by a maniac, his love has made me blind. 
Can't deny - the poison gets me high, 
Just a little taste 
Shook my life, it hit me like a drum 

chorus: 
Hey, hey, hey 
I feel the mambo, aiya 
A mambo, aiya 
You make my heart move 
Hey, hey, hey 
Just like a mambo, aiya 
I let it out 
A mambo, a-heya 

You were my obsession, 
Stuck into my heart. 
Never let you hit or run, 
Never set apart 
Do it, do it, do it 
Come and stay tonight 
Wake up a little fantasy, 
Take a little bite, 
Can't you see? Your love addicted me. 
Just a little taste, shook my life, it hit me like a drum. 

chorus 

Play the game, and get me hypnotized 
Wanna feel the vibe 
So hey now Mr. Whiz 
Get the magic done, 
Let me sway up high, 
Baby, here I am
