Cuban Pete

For some reason or another, I found myself checking out some videos of songs in various movies, and came across this memorable and delightful performance by Jim Carrey in his smash-hit, The Mask.

See if this doesn’t become your tune for the day. Everyone needs some cheerful soundtracks now and then, especially now.

They call me Cuban Pete. I’m the king of the rumba beat.
When I play the maracas I go chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky boom
Yessir, I’m Cuban Pete. I’m the craze of my native street.
When I start to dance, everything goes chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky boom
The senoritas they sing and they swing with terampero-
It’s very nice, so full of spice.
And when they dance in they bring a happy ring that era keros-
Singin’ a song, all the day long.
So if you like the beat, take a lesson from Cuban Pete
And I’ll teach you to chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky-boom.

He’s really a modest guy, although he’s the hottest guy
In Havana, in Havana.

Si, sinorita I know that you would like to chicky-boom-chick
It’s very nice, so full of spice.
I’ll place my hand on your hip, and if you will just give me your hand
Then we shall try – just you and I. I-yi-yi!
So if you like the beat, take a lesson from Cuban Pete
And I’ll teach you chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky-boom

Shake Your Booty, Daddy, Wow!
See ya!
