It happened to meOn a trip to the west indiesOh, I’m all at seaSince that trip to the west indiesI’m jitteryI’m twitteryI guess I’m done forI guess I’m throughAnd it’s something about which there’s nothing anyone can doIt isn’t loveIt isn’t money troubleIt’s a very funny trouble:It’s just another rhumbaBut it certainly has my numb-bahSo much so, that I can’t eat or slum-bahCan you imagine anything dumb-bah? Why did I have to plan aVacation in havana? Why did I take that tripThat made me lose my grip? Oh! that piece of music laid me lowThere it goes again:Just another rhumbaWhich I heard only last septum-bahI’m a wreck, why did I have to succumb-bahCan you imagine anything dumb-bah? Why did I have to succumb-bahTo that rhumba? Ahah, I’m the cucaracha, who just went blahAnd gave up swinging ha-cha, ahahAhah, at first it was devine-ahBut it turned out a cuban frankenstein-ahAhah, it’s got me by the throat-ah!Oh, what’s the antidote-ah? Ahah, it brought me woe and strife-ahOh, where’s a gun or knife-ah? It’s the rhumba that blighted my lifeThere it goes again:Just another rhumbaBut it certainly has my numb-bahSo much so, that I can’t eat or slum-bahCan you imagine anything dumb-bah? Why did I have to succumb-bahTo that rhumba? (instrumental break)There it goes again:Just another rhumbaBut it certainly has my numb-bahSo much so, that I can’t eat or slum-bahCan you imagine anything dumb-bah? Why did I have to succumb-bahTo that rhumba?
