I was sweet and gentle
(She was sweet and gentle)
Kind of sentimental
(Kind of sentimental)

No one will deny it
(No one will deny it)
I was once so quiet

And then one magic night
I learned to do the Cha Cha
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
And now I'll never be the same

For I have turned into
A dancing cucaracha
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
And my muchacho is to blame

How can I be gentle
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
Sweet and sentimental
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)

While the Cha Cha's playing
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
And my heart is swaying

I find that I am even
Dancing when I'm walking
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
I'm haunted by that Cha Cha beat

I hear the rhythm start
Whenever we are talking
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
I do the Cha Cha in my sleep

Cha Cha Cha
Cha Cha Cha
Cha Cha Cha

Cha Cha Cha
Cha Cha Cha Cha

How can I be gentle
(How can she be gentle)
Sweet and sentimental
(Sweet and sentimental)

While the Cha Cha's playing
(While the Cha Cha's playing)
And my heart is swaying

I find that I am even
Dancing when I'm walking
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
I'm haunted by that Cha Cha beat

I hear the rhythm start
Whenever we are talking
(Cha Cha, Cha Cha)
I do the Cha Cha in my sleep

Please be sweet and gentle
Treat me sentimental
For I'm temperamental
When I Cha Cha with you

Cha Cha Cha
Cha Cha Cha
Cha Cha Cha Cha
