The Rhumba Boogie
Hank Snow

Well come all you children give a listen to me let me tell you bout a new boogie beat
There's no hesitation it's sweepin' the nation
It's the Rhumba Boogie down the South American way
While Madame Lozonga was teachin' La Conga in her little cabana in old Havana
We were doing the charleston and Ballin' the Jack
Then that old black bottom till they started the Jitterbug rag
Then across the water came Cuban Pete he started the 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
Now the guy responsible for leadin' the band
Yells do you stuff it's the best in the land
It's the Rhumba Boogie let's dance it a while
To the boogie woogie done the Rhumba Cuban all style
When that old piano it starts to ring everybody 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

While Madame Lozonga was teachin' La Conga in her little cabana in old Habana
The folks in old Mexico where doin' the tango
And we were steppin' to the rhythm of an old guitar
Till across the water came Cuban Pete he started to boogie to the Rhumba beat
It's the Rhumba Boogie let's dance it a while
To the boogie woogie done the Rhumba Cuban all style
