Este son, corazon Es para disfrutar. (pegaditos a bailar) Este son, corazon, Nos hace suspirar. (pegaditos a bailar) Con mucho savor llevando el compas, Pasito pa' adelante, pasito pa' atras. Suavecito, suavecito
Looking at some palm trees
So tall against the clear blue sky,
Listening to the ocean,
I feel my baby by my side.
Bahia de Vallarta Sparkles as the sea birds fly Anejo Cuba libres
To wash away the hot and dry
Bye bye, me and my baby say bye bye.
We got to go Somewhere on the beach down in Mexico.
On the malecon
With my baby hand in hand
The shimmer of the sunshine
As we walk along the sand.
Dos mas coco locos
Baby's working on her tan
And when the evening comes
I'm so glad that I'm her man.
This is a "true" story about my friend the legendery bartender Mario Delgado who one time brought me a one-gallon plastic milk bottle from Tequila, Mexico full of home made tequila. Aayyyyy!!!!!!!
I' got me an amigo named Mario he brought me a bottle from Mexico It was the color of the sun, it tasted like gold it was moonshine tequila from Tequila, Mexico! Moonshine tequila, ay, ay, ay! Moonshine tequila, oh, oh, oh! It's the color of the sun, it tastes like gold, Moonshine tequila from Tequila, Mexico. I poured a little glass and I took a little sip and in just un momentito my knees began to dip I chugged another swig and tried to keep a grip but that moonshine tequila it put me on my lips! Mario and I were feeling pretty high then Mario decided he'd try to kiss the sky, then he flapped his arms and he started to fly! It was the moonshine tequila, you know I wouldn't lie! He was floating on his back, flying through the air He was talking to a lady who maybe wasn't there. Then he started getting naked but no one even stared they were drinking that moonshine tequila and no one even cared!
Abre La puerta, mulata Abre la puerta, mujer, Bailando toda la noche Al ver el amanecer
I wrote the tune and had a lyric for the story. I asked Juan to help me fix the lyric so it was better Spanish.
Ya Me Voy (Iâ€™m Going Away) (The Spanish lyric) â€œHarÃ© mi canto, y ya me voy, calmando el yanto, yo estoy, Y la promesa yo doy, Lejos de la tristeza yo voy. Como la luna yo soy, Dare fortuna y allÃ voy. La felicidad yo doy, Como el fuego you soy, Y un adariego yo soy. Como el viento yo soy, AsÃ me siento y ya me voy!â€Â (English translation) â€œIâ€™ll sing my song, and Iâ€™m going. Calming the tears, I am. I give a promise, Away from sorrow Iâ€™m going. Like the moon I am I share good fortune, And there I go. With freedom I go, And with the joy I give. Like fire I am And a wanderer I am, Like the wind I am And thatâ€™s how I feel And Iâ€™m going away now.â€Â
