why la palma real nos alumbra
Aqui no hay canto en vano
And the royal palm enlights us
Here it can't be found

Mi casa why su casa, Guantanamo
And I got all my moros here, Guantanamo

Ey chico!
Cop the Cuban bootleg compay Segundo
Only this time, no blues brother
Give twenties and couple of wise words to the kids
Tell 'em, respect the whole nine
Take my dinner with the Don
The sun is about to set
Red sky, hot breeze, ladies like the guitars
Veteran cars ain't no flat tire, just hold on
Not the one in Vegas, nah the one in Maroc
Mo' hot sauce, mo' sipping, mo' palmas, mo' bailar
El son de mi cuba
Desayuno why al salir
Oye chico subele el volumen
why esta cola para el pan
Ahora ya en La Habana
Los problemas no se ocultan
Las palmas como el Che
Voy cantando
Por mi isla mi compadre voy cruzando
Mi chevy why el sol ardiente
Porque hoy me voy para Oriente
Salutes me good morning
The whole world is already up
Cause I love this bolero
Now picture La Habana
Problems can't be hidden
The palms like El Che bring pride to the landscape
"De donde son los cantantes"
My Chevy and the burning sun
Cause today I'm on my way to the Orient
Plus la salsa making it hotter
Life is what you make it
Sometimes you get sunshine

Move it to the left
OK hold it there
Even though the signal ain't clear
Around here it's pelota
Coming from two proud cultures
Some of the greatest came from here you know they got heart
Then they switch hit a 6

Lights out, ain't got no electricity for the rest of the night
Bounce to this beat, till the sun gon' come up
Mo sunshine

This goes out to Alamar and to the rest of Cuba
