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.
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 LOVE.

YOU KISS,
WHILE YOU'RE DANCING
IT'S CONTINENTAL,
IT'S CONTINENTAL.
YOU SING,
WHILE YOU'RE DANCING
YOUR VOICE IS GENTLE,
AND 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 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.

BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!
DANGEROUS RHYTHM!
