GUEST,Kevin Lyr Req: When Yuba Plays the Rumba on the Tuba (15) Lyr Add: WHEN YUBA PLAYS THE RUMBA ON THE TUBA 08 May 08


I found these lyrics on the web.

His name was Yuba,
He was homely, he was dumb.
And so was Yuba
Just a big ambitious bum,
He wouldn't do-a
So much as chew a piece of gum
So this is news to me.

I understand-a
He's an overnight success,
He's in demand-a.
Why? I never could have guessed.
Well, he found a big bass tuba
Then he bummed his way to Cuba
And the rest is history.

Down in Havana there's a funny-looking boob-a,
He plays the rhumba round the tuba down in Cuba.
Oh when his sap'll sell an apple
But this chap'd rather grapple
With his oompah-oompah-oompah.
They prefer it to the booba-doopa-doopa.
They love the rhumba round the tuba down in Cuba.

It doesn't take him very long to get a tumble,
Oh, all the rhumba lovers go into their rumble.
Oh, how I'd love to be his double,
For without a bit of trouble
With his oompah-oompah-oompah
He can knock eleven ladies for a loop-a.
They love the rhumba round the tuba down in Cuba.

He's not a green horn,
He blows a mean horn,
A must be seen horn,
Oh he's a riddle.

Why, all Havana loves the sunny-lookin' boob-a,
He plays the rhumba round the tuba down in Cuba.
I can't believe it but they tell us
Every peanut vendor's jealous
Of his oompah-oompah-oompah,
They prefer it to the boopa-doopa-doopa.
They love the rhumba round the tuba down in Cuba.
They love his oompah-oompah-oompah-oompah-oomp.

He's not a green horn,
He blows a mean horn,
A must be seen horn,
Oh he's a riddle.

Why, all Havana loves the sunny-lookin' boob-a,
Who plays the rhumba round the tuba down in Cuba.
He's getting wealthy, strong and hearty
Thanks to plenty good Bacardi
And his oompah-oompah-oompah, oh he
Knocks the booba-doopa for a loop-ah.
They love the rhumba round the tuba down in Cuba.

They love his oompah-oompah-oompah-oompah
Oomp!
Oomp!
Oomp!!
