It's something daring, The Continental,
A way of dancing that's really ultra new
It's very subtle, The Continental,
Because it does what you want it to do...
It has a passion, The Continental,
An invitation to moonlight and romance
It's quite the fashion, The Continental,
Because you tell of your love while you dance...
Your lips whisper so tenderly
Her eyes answer your song
Two bodies swaying, The Continental,
And you are saying just what you're dreaming of
So keep on dancing, The Continental,
For it's a song of romance and of love...
You kiss while you're dancing
The Continental, hmmmmm. It's continental
You sing while you're dancing
Your voice is gentle and sentimental...
You stroll together arm in arm
You nonchalantly glide
Along with grace and charm
You will find while you're dancing
That there's a rhythm in your heart and soul,
A certain rhythm that you can't control,
And you will do The Continental all the time..
