JUST ANOTHER RHUMBA George Gershwin (m) Ira Gershwin (l) 1937 as recorded by Ella Fitzgerald with Nelson Riddle & his Orchestra July 17th 1959 Hollywood It happened to me On a trip to the West Indies; Oh, I'm all at sea Since that trip to the West Indies! I'm jittery, I'm twittery, I guess I'm done for, I guess I'm through, And it's something about which There's nothing anyone can do! It isn't love, It isn't money trouble It's a very funny trouble! It's just another rhumba, But it certainly has my number, So much so that I can't eat or slumber! Can you imagine anything dumb-ber? Why did I have to plan a Vacation in Havana? Why did I take that trip That made me lose my grip? Ohhhh! That piece of music laid me low! There it goes again! Just another rhumba Which I heard only last Septumber. I'm a wreck, why did I have to succumb-ber? Can you imagine anything dumb-ber? Why did I have to Succumb-ber To that rhumba? Ah-ah, I'm the cucaracha who just went blah, And gave up swingin' ha-cha, Ah-ah-ah! Ah-ah, At first it was diviner, But it turned out a Cuban Frankensteiner! Ah-ah-ah, It's got me by the throater, Oh, what's the antidoter? Ah-ah-ah, It brought me woe and strifer, Oh, where's my gun and knifer? It's the rhumba that blighted my life! There it goes again! Just another rhumba, But it certainly has my number, So much so that I can't eat or slumber! Can you imagine anything dumb-ber? Why did I have to succumb-ber To that rhumba? There it goes again! Just another rhumba, But it certainly has my number, So much so that I can't eat or slumber! Can you imagine anything dumb-ber? Why did I have to succumb-ber To that rhumba?
