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, 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 thinking of
So keep on dancing the Continental
For it's the song of romance and of love
You kiss, kiss kiss, while you're dancin'
You sing how you sing while you're dancin'
You know before the dance is through
That you're in love with her, she's in love with you
You will find that while you're dancin'
There's a rhythm in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can't control
You will do the Continental all the time
