Babaluuuuuu
Babalu
Babalu aye
Babalu aye
Babaluaaaaye
Ta empezando lo velorio
Que le hacemo a Babalu
Dame diez y siete velas
Ay Pa ponerla en cruz.
Y Dame un cabo de tabaco mayenye
Y un jarrito de aguardiente,
Dame un poco de dinero mayenye
Pa' que me de la suerte.
CORO
Yo Quiere pedi
Que mi negro me quiera
Que tenga dinero
Y que no se muera
Ay! Yo le quiere pedi a Babalu
Ay! un negrito muy santo como tu
Que no tenga otro negro
Y que a mi me quiera.
Ay Babalu aye
Babalu aye
Chango-abalu aye
Babalu aye
Babalu aye
Ay dame diecisiete velas pa aguachar un pie
Babalu aye
Babalu aye
Ay babababa que baba que baba Babalu aye
Babalu aye
Babalu aye
