We're having a heat wave,
A tropical heat wave,
The temperature's rising,
It isn't surprising,
She certainly can can-can.

She started a heat wave
By letting her seat wave
In such a way that
The customers say that
She certainly can can-can.

Gee, her anatomy
Makes the mercury
Jump to ninety-three.

We're having a heat wave,
A tropical heat wave,
The way that she moves
That thermometer proves
That she certainly can can-can.

(Coda included in Marilyn Monroe version:)

"What's your name honey?"
"Pablo."
Certianly can
"Chico"
Certainly can
"Miguelito."

"Pablo, Chico, Miguelito"
OOOH! Can Can
