The Lyrics

Why are you sitting, that-a-way?
Come on my senorita lets cut a rug
You know you have amazing legs, you shouldn’t shrug
You know you are a dancing star

Nikki cut lose the Rumba
You just gotta move your body girl
Let the soft bossa nova make you twirl
Nikki lets do the Rumba
You’re not lonely anymore
You will forget of Casa Nova
On the dance floor

You shouldn’t be so down, it’s time to play
I can see you dancing like Bo Jangles
We can step in time and sway gay, and tango
And we would be the dancing stars

Nikki cut lose the Rumba
Oh you ought to shake that bootie girl
Say goodbye to your sorrows with a whirl
Nikki lets do the Rumba
Let your lonely longings soar
Let the music move your maracas
On the dance floor

Your telling me your much too shy
But you can shake your heels and fly
Why you could be a dancing star

Nikki cut lose the Rumba
Oh you gotta move your body gal
Show it off mamacita for your pal
Nikki lets do the Rumba
It’s the baile I adore
Let the music make you feel freer
On the dance floor
