Mañana (Is Soon Enough for Me)

“Mañana (Is Soon Enough for Me)” is a popular song that was written by Peggy Lee and Dave Barbour and published in 1947.

Peggy Lee also recorded the song, on November 25, 1947, with Dave Barbour’s orchestra as backing. Released by Capitol Records (catalog number 15022), it became her biggest chart hit. For the week ending January 23, 1948, the single entered Billboard’s Best Sellers chart, where it spent 21 weeks, nine of those at number one.

Mañana is Spanish for “morning” or “tomorrow”. The theme of the humorous song is the singer wanting to put off urgent tasks until the next day. The song is typically performed with stereotyped Hispanic accents, and with a Latin flavor to the backup band.
