Celia Cruz – Quimbara lyrics

Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba
Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba
Ee Mama Ee MamaІ Ee Mama Ee Mama
La rumba me esta llamando bombo dile que ya voy.
Que me espere un momentico asi, mientras canto un guaguanc.
Dile que no es un desprecio, pues vive en mi corazn.
Mi vida es tan solo eso, rumba buena y guaguanc!
Ee Mama Ee Mama
Cmo? Ay Dios mio, pero que lio, y dice

Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba
Ay, si quieres gozar, quieres bailar
Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba
Pero lo baila Teresa y lo baila Juanito
Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba
Oye cachin, cachan, cachan, cachumba
Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba
Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba
Pero lo baila Teresa y tambin Joseito
Cmo? Azuca, azuca

    Quimbara for me means, come to dance; let go. There is no real meaning to this word. It's orogin is african. Celia cruz was an african decendant brought to cuba. The word was used for voodoo. Although I don't really know what it means. I think it means something like bring back to life or dane to live. I hope it doesn't change, in a bad way, your thought on the song =]
