Mambo De La Luna

Mambo De La Luna

Kirsty MacColl

I know an island where the people are kind
And the rest of the world seems far away
Maybe it's only in the back of my mind
But I know when I go that's where I'll stay

"see'mon, see'mon" dice la inglesa
("come on, come on" says the english woman)
"see'est bon, see'est bon" dice la francesa
("it's good, it's good" says the french woman)
"ay, que lindo" dice la cubana singing far away
("oh how handsome!" says the cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(such good luck.)
Esa es mi vida
(this is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)

I know a land where they live for today
'Cause tomorrow is too far away
Maybe one day you will go there with me
And we'll dance underneath the ceiba tree

"see'mon, see'mon" dice la inglesa
("come on, come on" says the english woman)
"see'est bon, see'est bon" dice la francesa
("it's good, it's good" says the french woman)
"ay, candela!" dice la cubana singing far away
("oh ........!" says the cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(such good luck.)
Esa es mi vida
(this is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)

La vida es dura, el corazon es puro, why cantamos hasta la madrugada
(life is hard, the heart is pure, and we dance until dawn)
El dia no es facil, el trabajo es dificil, entonces bailamos hasta la madrugada
(the day's not easy, work is hard, then we dance until dawn)

"see'mon see'mon" dice la inglesa
("come on, come on" says the english woman)
"see'est bon, see'est bon" dice la francesa
("it's good, it's good" says the french woman)
"ay, que rico!" dice la cubana singing far away
("oh how rich!" says the cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(such good luck)
Esa es mi vida
(this is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)

Love is the key to the dance, you can move in a trance when the music sets you free
Don't be afraid of the rhythm it's made to give life to the way you want to be

Si, yo te quiero como quiero agua pura
(yes, I want you like I want pure water)
Si, yo te quiero como mueves la cintura
(yes, I want you, how you move your waist)
Sí tu me quieres, trae me la luna
(if you want me, bring me the moon)
No solo una parte pero la luna entira
(not just a piece but the entire moon)

"see'mon see'mon" dice la inglesa
("come on, come on" says the english woman)
"see'est bon, see'est bon" dice la francesa
("it's good, it's good" says the french woman)
"ay, que rico!" dice la cubana singing far away
("oh how rich!" says the cuban woman)
Que buena fortuna
(such good luck)
Esa es mi vida
(this is my life)
Como el mambo de la luna
(like the mambo of the moon)
