En la Torre de Babel
Vivan cincuenta cigarros
Vivan amontonados
Hechos todos de papel
Uno a uno alineados
Todos muy bien formados
El ms pequeo era aquel
Y se llamaba Gabriel
Tabaco fino, algodones
Iban a ver el ro
Iban cantando canciones,
Muertos de fro
La pasin de Gabriel
Era nadar en el ro
Le cont de esto a su to
Que era un cigarro de miel
Su to que era muy viejo
No le puso reparos
Y cuando lleg el habano
Forrado entero de caf
"Dnde se meti Gabriel"
Pregunt inquieto el habano
"Se fue con otros cigarros
A ver el ro correr"
"No lo puedo creer.
Eres muy mal ciudadano,
Pues tu sobrino y hermano
Tal vez nunca pueda volver"
Cuando lleg el habano
A la orilla del ro
Vi un pequeo cigarro
Muerto, abierto
