Lyrics:
Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm

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

        You kiss while you're dancing
        It's continental, ooh, it's continental
        You sing while you're dancing
        Your voice is gentle and so sentimental

You'll know before the dance is through
                That you're in love with her and she's in love with you
                You'll find while you're dancin'
                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

{brief instrumental}

                You'll find while you're dancin'
                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

Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm

The Continental!
