Lyrics

"Parece Mentira"

Digo a los matanceros
que me pongan atención
lo digo de corazón
porque yo soy muy sincero
a Matanzas la venero
porque también soy cubano
con mi sombrero en la mano
me pregono con orgullo
que vivan los hijos tuyos
porque también soy tu hermano.

From Rumba de Cajones, "Canto a Angola"

oigan senores, oíganlo bien
oigan senores, oíganlo bien
la lucha que lleva acabo
por su plena liberta,
ese gran pueblo angolano
que lucha sin descansa
Angola es, baluarte invencible
Angola puede contar
con nuestro pueblo Cubano,
que en la lucha son como hermanos
y por el mismo ideal,
no nos van a amedrentar,
con su corbardes agresiones,
esos sicarios traidores,
que paga el imperialismo
seguiremos hacia adelante
con crear el comunismo.

"Los Beodos"

Yo me puse a descubrir
un nuevo descubrimiento
me faltaba el instrumento
y me puse a renegar
la maldición que me eché
que ojalá rico me viera
que'l río Almendares creciera
de vino tinto y jerez
ligado con "Triple Sec"
o con ginebra holandesa
que los charcos de cerveza
me sirvieran de jabón
y me tirara de cabeza
dentro de un manantial de ron
