Cuban Pete





They call me Cuban Pete

I'm the King of the Rumba beat

When I play the marracas

I go chick-chicky-boom

chick-chicky-boom


Yes, Sir, I'm Cuban Pete

I'm the craze of my native street

when I start to dance

everything goes chick-chicky-boom

chick-chicky-boom


There Senoritas they sing

and how they swing

with this rumbero

it's very nice so full of spice


and when they dance and they bring a happy ring of vaqueros

singing a song all the day long


So if you like the beat

take a lesson from Cuban Pete

and I'll teach you to chick-chicky-boom

chick-chicky-boom chick-chicky-boom


Si, Senorita, I know that you will like the chicky boom chick

'cause it's the dance of Latin romance

and Cuban Pete doesn't teach you

in a hurry like Arthur Murray

I come from Havanah and there's always manana

They call me Sally Sweet

I'm the Queen of Delancy Street

When I start to dance everything goes chick-chicky-boom

chick-chicky-boom


Excuse me Mister Pete

have the Cubans a different beat

if they have will you teach me to chick

chick-chicky-boom chick-chicky-boom


* * *


Si, Senorita, I know that you will like the chicky boom chick

It's very nice so full of spice

I place my hand your hip and if you will just give me your hand

then we shall try just you and I
