The Rhumba Boogie

Song Author Clarence E. Snow Lyrics by: Clarence E. Snow Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]Welcome all you children give a listen to me
Let me tell you about a [G7]new boogie beat
There's no h[C]esitation it's sweeping the [G]nation
It's the [D7]Rhumba Boogie done the South American [G]way  

While Madame Lazonga was teaching La Conga
In her little cabana in [G7]old Havana
We were [C]doing the Charleston and Balling the [G]Jack
Then that old [D7]Black Bottom till they started that Jitterbug [G]Rag  

Then across the water came Cuban Pete
He started a boogie to [G7]the Rhumba beat
It's the [C]Rhumba Boogie let's give it a [G]whirl
While he [D7]plays the boogie in the South American [G]style

Well you step out together then you circle around
Count one  two  three then [G7]put your right foot down
Then you [C]circle your lady as you swing and you [G]sway
To the [D7]Rhumba Boogie in the South American [G]way  

When that old piano it starts to ring
Everybody then [G7]starts to sing
To the [C]Rhumba Boogie  done the tropical [G]style
It's the [D7]Rhumba Boogie and they're doing it all of the [G]while

Well the guy responsible for leading the band
He yells do your stuff it's the [G7]best in best In the land
It's the [C]Rhumba Boogie let's dance it [G]awhile
To the [D7]Boogie Woogie done the Rhumba Cuban [G]style

While Madame Lazonga was teaching La Conga
In her little cabana in [G7]old Havana
We were [C]doing the Charleston and Balling the [G]Jack
Then that old [D7]Black Bottom till they started that Jitterbug [G]Rag  

Then across the water came Cuban Pete
He started a boogie to [G7]the Rhumba beat
It's the [C]Rhumba Boogie let's give it a [G]whirl
While he [D7]plays the boogie in the South American [G]style

Welcome all you children give a listen to me
Let me tell you about a new boogie beat
There's no hesitation it's sweeping the nation
It's the Rhumba Boogie done the South American way

While Madame Lazonga was teaching La Conga
In her little cabana in old Havana
We were doing the Charleston and Balling the Jack
Then that old Black Bottom till 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
Everybody then starts to sing
To the Rhumba Boogie  done the tropical style
It's the Rhumba Boogie and they're doing it all of the while

Well the guy responsible for leading 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 Cuban style

While Madame Lazonga was teaching La Conga
In her little cabana in old Havana
We were doing the Charleston and Balling the Jack
Then that old Black Bottom till 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
