Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba

Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia y otra cosita
Y arriba y arriba
Y arriba y arriba y arriba ire
Yo no soy marinero
Yo no soy marinero, por ti sere
Por ti sere, por ti sere

Bamba, bamba, bamba, bamba
Bamba, bamba
Bamba

Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba

Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa mi pa ti
Ay y arriba y arriba
Y arriba y arriba y arriba ire
Yo no soy marinero
Yo no soy marinero, soy capitan
Soy capitan, soy capitan

Bamba, bamba, bamba, bamba
Bamba, bamba

Translation of Lyrics

In order to dance bamba
In order to dance bamba

A little grace is needed
A little of grace and another small thing
And above and above
And above and above and above ire
I am not marine
I am not marine, For you I'll be
For you I'll be, for you I'll be

Bamba, bamba, bamba, bamba
Bamba, bamba
Bamba

In order to dance bamba
In order to dance bamba

A little grace is needed
A little of grace pa my pa you
Ay and above and above
And above and above and above ire
I am not marine
I am not marine, I am captain
I am captain, I am captain

Bamba, bamba, bamba, bamba
Bamba, bamba
