Continental, The

Writer(s): Con Conrad / Herb Magidson
(from the Album: The Voice-The Columbia Years-Disc 3)

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.
