Lyrics
THE LATIN THING

I’m so tired of people taking sides
And putting other people down
Life's a rainbow not just black or white
So everybody gather round
We all have something we an give this world
A handshake's better than a fist
A mix of rhythms can make something new
Like funky dance music with a Latin twist

This is the Latin Thing -- come on and dance and sing
Let your hips sway and swing -- let's do the Latin Thing
This is the Latin Thing -- let brotherhood be king
One human family -- let's do the Latin Thing

Start with something in a funky groove
Add a Latin step and see
Mambo, samba -- add it if you choose
Make it really funky with a Latin beat

Everybody can be part of the fun
Doesn't matter who you are
All join hands my friends all people are one
Come on jam with me -- get down and party with me – Party…

Optional Rap Section

Afro-Cuba rhythms make the mambo with its swing "
Put some funk to what you got/This is the Latin Thing

Rio has the samba touch; it makes you dance and sing
Add a slice of R&B/This is the Latin Thing
Optional Rap. Continued…

Dominican& has its own -- Merengue is the king
Add it to a hot new dance/This is the Latin Thing

Puerto Rico has its sound and mucho partying
Mix Bomba with a funky groove/This is the Latin Thing
