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!

Lyrics YOU CAN TALK
ABOUT YOUR LOVE AFFAIRS,
HERE'S ONE I MUST TELL TO YOU.
ALL NIGHT LONG
THEY SIT UPON THE STAIRS,
HE HOLDS HER CLOSE AND STARTS TO COO:

MY LITTLE MARGIE,
I'M ALWAYS THINKING OF YOU,
MARGIE.
I'LL TELL THE WORLD I LOVE YOU,
DON'T FORGET YOUR PROMISE TO ME.
I HAVE BOUGHT A HOME
AND RING
AND EV'RY THING,
FOR MARGIE,
YOU'VE BEEN MY INSPIRATION.
DAYS ARE NEVER BLUE
AFTER ALL IS SAID AND DONE,
THERE IS REALLY ONLY ONE,
OH!
MARGIE,
MARGIE,
IT'S YOU.

YOU CAN PICTURE ME
MOST EV'RY NIGHT,
I CAN'T WAIT
UNTIL THEY START.
EV'RY THING HE SAYS
JUST SEEMS ALL RIGHT,
I WANT TO LEARN THAT STUFF
BY HEART.

MY LITTLE MARGIE,
I'M ALWAYS THINKING OF YOU,
MARGIE.
I'LL TELL THE WORLD I LOVE YOU,
DON'T FORGET YOUR PROMISE TO ME.
I HAVE BOUGHT A HOME
AND RING
AND EV'RY THING,
FOR MARGIE,
YOU'VE BEEN MY INSPIRATION.
DAYS ARE NEVER BLUE
AFTER ALL IS SAID AND DONE,
THERE IS REALLY ONLY ONE,
OH!
MARGIE,
MARGIE,
IT'S YOU.
