(Rumba, Any Old Way)
Performed by Los Zafiros, written by Rolando Vergara Rodríguez

I don’t care what people say.
I was born to dance.
And when I feel the drum beat,
I break out dancing.
I come from rumba people.

I dance rumba any old way
I dance rumba my own way.

You see, the rumba’s jumpin’.
So sweet my rumba,
rumba man, for dancin’.

In my tropical shirt
in the middle of the road.

Dance the rumba, mulatto girl,
yes, dance it even outdoors,
because this rumba’s for dancing,
my mulatto girl, any old way.
