The Lyrics

i hear you jeering...that's OK
i've having just a wild time...its so much fun
i guess you've never tried yourself...you've spurned it, hon
but as for me, i think its smart

strictly, i choose to rhumba
who will try at all ?...nobody else
slinking off to that rhythm by myself
strictly, i choose to rhumba
its the only step i've known
its confusing to folks i've met here
they stare and groan

no one will dance around...they think its lame
they ain't up for trying...they can't let go
they will just deride, all those dames...they don't know
this dance would tear their world apart

strictly, i choose to rhumba
who will try at all ?...nobody else
slinking off to that rhythm by myself
strictly, i choose to rhumba
its the only step i've known
its confusing to folks i've met here
they stare and groan

you tell yourself its unrefined
you'd rather do some different kind
but when i hear that beat, i dart

strictly, i choose to rhumba
who will try at all ?...nobody else
slinking off to that rhythm by myself
strictly, i choose to rhumba
its the only step i've known
its confusing to folks i've met here
they stare and groan

strictly, i choose to rhumba
strictly, i choose to rhumba
strictly, i choose to rhumba
