The Continental

Fred Astaire

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...

Your lips whisper so tenderly
Her eyes answer your song
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...

You kiss while you're dancing
(FRED: (spoken) That's not a bad idea)
The Continental, hmmmmm. It's continental
You sing while you're dancing
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
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...

(ERIC RHODES)
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...

Your lips whisper so tenderly
Her eyes answer your song!
Two bodies swaying, The Continental,
And you are saying just what you're thinking of
So keep on dancing, The Continental,
For it's a song of romance and of love...

You kiss while you're dancing
The Continental, Continental
You sing while you're dancing
Your voice is gentle, so sentimental
You know before this dance is through
That you're in love with
She and she's in love with you
You'll find while you're dancing
here'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...

(LILLIAN MILES)
Dukes and lords of noble station
Love the new sophistication of The Continental
In a Belgian hall room,
In a Monte Carlo ballroom,
You will see The Continental
In the Paris bistros crowded with Apache,
You will see The Continental
In the best French fashion
Spain and Italy, Transylvania,
Norway, Sweden and Rumania do The Continental
On the dike of Zuider Zee,
The wooden shoes have found the key to Continental...

It's like a fever
It's like a plague
It's swept all Europe
From Moscow to The Hague...

You kiss while you're dancing
The Continental, the rhythm is driving you wild
The Continental, a meter that isn't so mild...

You sing while you're dancing
His voice is gentle
It thrills you, the touch of his hand
The Continental, a meter that you understand...

You'll know before this dance is through
That you're in love with her and she's in love with you
You'll find while you're dancing
That there's a rhythm in your heart and soul,
A certain rhythm that you can't control,
The Continental, Continental, Continental!
