Desi Arnaz – Cuban Pete lyrics

They call me Cuban Pete, I'm the king of the rhumba beat.
When I play my maracas I go
Chick chicky boom, chick chicky boom.

Yes sir I'm Cuban Pete, I'm the craze of my native street.
When I start to dance everything goes
Chick chicky boom, chick chicky boom

The senoritas, they sing and how they swing with their sombreros.
It's very nice, so full of spice!
And when they're dancing, they bring a happy ring
El maraquero singin a song, all the day long

So If you like the beat, take a lesson from Cuban Pete,
And I'll teach you to chick chicky boom, chick chicky boom

Si senorita, I know that you will like the chicky boom chick
'Cause it's the dance of Latin romance.
And Cuban Pete don't teach you in a hurry like Arthur Murray.
I come from Havana and there's always manana,
So senorita!

Senora or Senorita solo: (optional)

They call me Sally Sweet, I'm the queen of Delancey Street
When I start to dance everything goes
Chick chicky boom, chick chicky boom

Excuse me Mr. Pete, (yes maam)
Have the Cubans a different beat?
If they have will you teach me to
Chick chick chicky boom, chick chicky boom?

Verse 2 (male solo)

Si, Senorita, I know that you will like the chicky boom chick
It's very nice, so full of spice
I'll place my hand on your hip and if you will just give me your hand
Then we shall try, just you and I.
