"Rhumboogie" as written by Kendell Smith, Thomas G. Lowry, Neville Staple and Sheena Staple....
All Harlem's got a brand new rhythm
And it's burning up the dance floors
Because it's so hot

They took a little rhumba rhythm
And they added boogie woogie
And a look what they've go

Rhumboogie
Rhumboogie woogie
It's Harlem's new creation
With a Cuban syncopation
It's a killer

Rhumboogie
Rhumboogie woogie
The native rhythm haunts you
It's barbaric and it taunts you
It's a killer

Just plant your both feet on each side
Let both your hips and shoulders glide
Then throw your body back and ride
There's nothing like

Rhumboogie
Rhumboogie woogie
In Harlem or Havana
You can kiss the old Savanna
It's a killer

Oh, beat me daddy, eight to the bar

Rhumboogie
Rhumboogie woogie
It's Harlem's new creation
With a Cuban syncopation
It's a killer

Rhumboogie
Rhumboogie woogie
The native rhythm haunts you
It's barbaric and it taunts you
It's a killer

Just plant you toes and both feet on the side
Let both your hips and shoulders glide
Then throw your body back and ride
Think a little of
The rhumba
The boogie
The woogie
Then put them
Both all together
You have rhumboogie

Then all together sing rhumboogie
Rhumboogie woogie
Rhumboogie
In Harlem or Havana
It'll kiss the old Savanna
It's a killer
It's a killer this rhumboogie

Rhumboogie
Rhumboogie
Rhumboogie woogie woogie woogie woogie
Do do do do diddleyada do diddleyada do do dee
There's nothing like rhumboogie
