"Da Le Yaleo" as written by and Herve Bastien Christian Polloni....
Deja ya 'migo sin ella no somos na'
Deja ya 'migo sin ella no somos na'
Deja ya 'migo sin ella no somos na'
Deja ya 'migo sin ella no somos na'
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya

Yo la vi cantando en París
Ella quiso estar junto de mi
Yo me sorprendí
Cuando dijo Yaleo

Vamos caminando Élysées
Tomando vino y partiendo pan
Ella dijo dame, dame ya yaleo yaleo

Yaleo, yaleo, yaleo, yaleo
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya

Si tu pudieras, decirme a mi
Yo no lo creo, lo que pasa aquí
Ella es mía, y me da su amor
Estoy completo y soy feliz
Ahora tengo niños que dicen yaleo, yaleo

Yaleo, yaleo, yaleo, yaleo
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya

Yaleo, yaleo, yaleo, yaleo
Yaleo
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Yaleo
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Yaleo
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Yaleo
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Yaleo
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Tika n'gai wa yo
Simba n'gai wa yo yaya
Yaleo

    General CommentI don't know Spanish - i listen to Santana mainly for the music, not the lyrics.

    General CommentDoes anyone know what 'yaleo' and 'ise' (or whatever it's meant to be... perhaps it's Belice?) mean? I understand the rest of the song, but when I went to look those two words up I couldn't find them.

    General CommentMy rough English translation. I can't guarantee accuracy, but I think it works.

    I saw her singing in Paris
    She wanted to be with me
    I was suprised
    When she said Yaleo

    We went walking the ise (Isle?)
    Drinking wine and sharing bread
    And she said "Give me, give me YALEO YALEO already."

    (Don't know this language, something African? I'm guessing whatever it is, it's also the source of the word "Yaleo", which isn't Spanish as far as I know.)

    If you can, tell me. (Maybe "explain it to me"?)
    I don't believe it, that which happened here.
    She is mine, and she gives me her love
    I'm complete and I'm happy.
    Now I have children that say Yaleo.

    "Da le Yaleo" I presume to be "Give her Yaleo", or more generally "Give Yaleo".

    The last line should be "Ahora tengo niños que dicen Yaleo".


    So I think the song is about some magical word that the singer doesn't really understand but he has a hot wife and kids and doesn't care. =o
