The Continental [From the Gay Divorcée] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Beautiful music
Dangerous rhythm
It's something daring, The Continental
A way of dancing that's really "entre nous"
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
It's quite the fashion, The Continental
Because you tell of your love while you dance
Your lips whisper so tenderly
Her eyes answer your song
Verse 4
Two bodies swaying, The Continental
And you are saying just what you're dreaming of
So keep on dancing, The Continental
For it's a song of romance and of love
Verse 5
You kiss while you're dancing
Not a bad idea
The Continental, hm, it's continental
You sing while you're dancing
Verse 6
Your voice is gentle and sentimental
You stroll together arm in arm
You nonchalantly glide along with grace and charm
You will find while you're dancing
Verse 7
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
