"La Bamba" as written by Samuel Toubbe, Dp,, Carsten Heusmann, Jan Eric Kohrs and Jeo Metzei....
Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa' mi pa' ti y arriba y arriba
Ah y arriba y arriba por ti seré, por ti seré, por ti seré

Yo no soy marinero
Yo no soy marinero, soy capitán,
Soy capitán, soy capitán

Bamba bamba

Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa' mi pa' ti ah y arriba y arriba

Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa' mi pa' ti ah y arriba y arriba
Ah y arriba y arriba por ti seré, por ti seré, por ti seré

Bamba bamba

    General CommentI love this song, it's one of those ones you don't care about what it means as it sounds perfect the way it is in a different language.

    General CommentThe lyrics may be dull but it has a good feeling and the guitar at the end is just marvelous

    General Commentit's not a dumb song. it's a song of protest, and kinda funny when you know what it's about. it's way older than Los Lobos and Ritchie Valens, hundreds of years older. look it up.

    General CommentI think this cover is a lot better than Richie Valen's original. The guitar play is much better.
