Written by: Jesse Winchester
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Buffet Hotel (2009)

Lyrics:
Well I’m the same old guy that I used to be
I haven’t changed at all
I got the same old walk the same old talk
That can drive you up the wall
I got the same old face, same old smile and
And them same old baby blues
And I’m still doing the rhumba, baby
So I’m still the man for you

Cause I’m still doing the rhumba baby
I can’t seem to quit
my mama catches us doing the rhumba
Mama would just pitch a fit
I can’t help myself, it’s much bigger than me
If I were you, I would hang onto a rhumba man like me

Well There are lots of guys on the floor tonight
With a lot slicker steps than me
They do the fins to the left fins to the right
Everyone could see
Now my step might be old fashioned
But that’s alright with me
Cause I got a couple of rhumba steps
That you might like to see

I’m still doing the rhumba baby
I can’t seem to quit
my mama catches us doing the rhumba
Mama would just pitch a fit
I can’t help myself, it’s much bigger than me
If I were you, I would hang onto a rhumba man like me

Now I don’t lie
I’m the same old guy
I haven’t changed at all
I got the same old promenade
The same old talk
That can run you up the wall
I got the same old face, I got the same old smile
I got the same old baby blues
Hey I’m still doin’ the rhumba, baby
I’m still the man for you.

I’m still doing the rhumba baby
I can’t seem to quit
my mama catches us doing the rhumba
Mama would just pitch a fit
I can’t help myself, it’s much bigger than me
If I were you, I would hang onto a rhumba man like me

I’m still doing the rhumba baby
I can’t seem to quit
My mama catches us doing the rhumba
Mama would just pitch a fit
I can’t help myself, it’s much bigger than me
If I were you, I would hang onto a rhumba man like me.

Hey
If I were you, I would hang onto a rhumba man like me.
If I were you, I would hang onto a rhumba man like me.
Yes, Indeed
If I were you, I would hang onto a rhumba man like me.
