La Bamba


I was always a fan of this song since Richie Valens had a hit with it 1958. His luck ran out when he won the coin toss that put him on the plane that crashed on February 3, 1959, The Day The Music Died.

However my favorite version of the song is this recording published by the organization Playing for Change. Their mission is connecting the world through music which may be our only hope.

I've included lyrics which might be somewhat accurate. Enjoy.



Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba
Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa mi pa ti
Y, arriba arriba
Ay, 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
Bamba-bamba
Bamba-bamba
Bam
Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba
Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa mi pa ti
Ay, Arriba, y arriba
R-r-r-r-r, ha ha!
Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba
Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa mi pa ti
Ay, Arriba y arriba
Y arriba y arriba, por ti seré
Por ti seré
Por ti seré
Bamba-bamba
Bamba-bamba
Bamba-bamba
Bamba!
