The Lyrics

we hear him beatin'...he's OK
that hot and sizzlin' latin...is havin' fun
i guess he kinda taught himself...the conga drums
that cuban slams those things so hard

ricky knows cuban rumbas
he will caterwaul, but make no sense
lest he's heard by a fella like himself
ricky moans cuban numbers
in a low and wondrous tone
he loves lucy, that's why he wed her
but she stays home

he's a big hit in town...all know his name
babaloo, he's cryin'...loudly, he crows
he's just goin' wild...he's a-flame...he's a-glow
that cuban slams those things so hard

ricky knows cuban rumbas
he will caterwaul, but make no sense
lest he's heard by a fella like himself
ricky crows cuban numbers
in a low and wondrous tone
he loves lucy, that's why he wed her
but she stays home

and such an act is hard to find
his conga beatin' blows your mind
that cuban slams those things so hard

ricky knows cuban rumbas
he will caterwaul, but make no sense
lest he's heard by a fella like himself
ricky crows cuban numbers
in a low and wondrous tone
he loves lucy, that's why he wed her
but she stays home

ricky knows cuban rhumbas
ricky knows cuban rhumbas
