The rhumba boogie Lyrics

The rhumba boogie by Hank Snow  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The rhumba boogie Welcome all you children, give a listen to me

Let me tell you about a new boogie beat

There's no hesitation, and it's sweepin' the nation

It's the Rhumba Boogie done the South American way


While Madame Lazonga was teachin' La Conga

In her little cabana in old Havana

We were doin' the Charleston and Ballin' the Jack

Then that old Black Bottom 'til they started that Jitterbug Rag


Then across the water came Cuban Pete

He started a boogie to the Rhumba beat

It's the Rhumba Boogie let's give it a whirl

While he plays the boogie in the South American style


Well, you step out together then you circle around

Count one, two, three, then put your right foot down

Then you circle your lady, as you swing and you sway

To the Rhumba Boogie in the South American way


When that old piano, it starts to ring

Ever'body then starts to sing

To the Rhumba Boogie, done the tropical style

It's the Rhumba Boogie and they're doin' it all of the while


Well, the guy responsible for leadin' the band

He yells, Do your stuff it's the best in best in the land

It's the Rhumba Boogie, let's dance it awhile

To the Boogie Woogie done the Rhumba Cubana style


While Madame Lazonga was teachin' La Conga

In her little cabana in old Havana

The folks in Old Mexico were doing the tango

And we were steppin' to the rhythm of an old guitar


Well across the water came Cuban Pete

He started a boogie to the Rhumba beat

It's the Rhumba Boogie, let's dance it awhile

To the Boogie Woogie done the Rhumba Cubana style
