Tennessee Mambo

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

They’re really shaking down in Tennessee
They love the rhythm in a Latin key
You hear it and you drop for romance
And everyone yells that stance

When they play the Tennessee Mambo
Tennessee Mambo
We shake ‘til we’re numbo
We shake ‘til we groan

Knees knocking, hips rocking
Crazy swaying to and fro
Act like a native around a tom-tom
I’m a doing the Tennessee Mambo

Every night it’s like a Saturday
When you hear fiddles and maracas play
You know you’re going to live it up and so
You grab a gal and then let her go

When they play the Tennessee Mambo
Tennessee Mambo
We shake ‘til we’re numbo
We shake ‘til we groan

Knees knocking, hips rocking
Crazy swaying to and fro
Act like a native around a tom-tom
I’m a doing the Tennessee Mambo

We’re really shaking down in Tennessee
They love the rhythm to a Latin beat
The old square dance fiddles used to play
Are now square all day

When they play the Tennessee Mambo
Tennessee Mambo
We shake ‘til we’re numbo
We shake ‘til we groan

Knees knocking, hips rocking
Crazy swaying to and fro
Act like a native around a tom-tom
I’m a doing the Tennessee Mambo

The Quadrille doesn’t have a chance no more
Since the tune arrived from Ecuador
The old square dance fiddles used to play
Are mighty square all day

When they play the Tennessee Mambo
Tennessee Mambo
We shake ‘til we’re numbo
We shake ‘til we groan

Knees knocking, hips rocking
Crazy swaying to and fro
Act like a native around the tom tom I’m doing the Tennessee Mambo
