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,

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.
