Yo no sé si son tus ojos
o tu lindo caminar,
o serán tus labios rojos
los que siempre he de mirar.

Ella,
siempre va sola, sí.
Nadie la acompaña,
¡qué felicidad!

Por ella,
mi corazón suspira.
Sé que ella me mira
¡Alalalala!

Si yo, pudiera hablarle.
Si yo, pudiera ser su amor.

Por ella...

Si yo, pudiera ...

Ella...
Sola, sola
Ella...
Sola, sola
Ah yeah, yeah, yeah
Sola, sola
Ah baby
Sola, sola
Yeah, yeah, yeah
sola sola
Pretty baby
Sola, sola
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Sola, sola
Pretty baby
Sola, sola
Toma baby
Sola, sola
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Sola, sola
Baby,
Sola, sola

Escuchen:

¡Rompe Saraguey!
para la mala vista.

I don’t know
if it’s your eyes or your graceful walk,
maybe it’s your ruby lips
that cast a spell on me!

I see her walking
always alone, yeah.
No one is with her.
What luck!

My heart
sighs for her.
I know she looks at me.

If only I could speak to her,
If only I could be her love.

My heart
sighs for her.
I know she looks at me.

If only I could speak to her,
If only I could be her love.

Alone, alone
Baby, baby
Alone, alone
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Alone, alone
Pretty baby,
Alone alone
Mama knows
Alone, alone
Papa knows
Alone, alone
Mama knows
Alone, alone
And Papa too. ,etc...

Well, of course,
in order to make
this reggae a little more...
Cuban...
more Afro Cuban...
we always add
something of our own flavor.
You know, in African
“Yombo” means “friend!”
And so, of course,
since this is a reggae
we always sneak in something
to make it more...authentic.
So, we have a little chorus....
Aníbal, Rosendo, Marcial, and I...
and it goes something like this,
you’ll catch on fast
because everyone here
knows the spiritual tradition.
And it goes like this,
Listen:

Break the spell!
Shake off the evil eye!
