cuban pete lyrics – desi arnaz

they call me cuban pete
i’m the king of of rhumba beat
when i play the maracas i go chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom
yes sir, i’m cuban pete i’m the craze of my natives street
when i start to dance everything goes chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom
the senoritas they sing and how they swing with this sombrero
it’s so very nice, so full of spice
and when they dance they bring a happy ring of vaqueros
singing a song all 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 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 doesn’t teach you in a hurry like arthur murray
i come from havana and theres always manana so senorita… oh no…

lucille ball (lucy ricardo):
they call me sally sweet
i’m the queen of delancy street
when i start to dance everything goes chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom
excuse me mr.pete

dezi arnez (ricky ricardo):
yes ma’am

lucille ball (lucy ricardo):
have the cubans a different beat?
if they have will you teach me to chick chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom

dezi arnez (ricky ricardo):
si, senorita i know you will like the chicky-boom-chick (yea, man)
it’s so very nice so full of spice i place my hand on your hip and if you will just give me your hand then we shall try just you and i!
