OYE COMO VA   Santana


style="COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 11px;">Correction to the Santana's Oye Como Va lyrics:

Oye como va
mi ritmo.
Bueno pa' goza,
Mulata

The only reasonable Engish translation would be "Listen how my rythm goes. Good to get your grove on, Mulata" with Mulata being a 'lovey' nickname to a dark complected woman, possibly to whom the song was dedicated.

Hope this helps somebody.

I don't see too many Santana tabs so this should help.
I would love to hear any corrections, suggestions, or praises.

						Oye Como Va
							by
						  Santana


Okay, for those who can't figure out the lyrics to
Oye Como Va by Santana, here they are with an english
translation too!!

Oye Como Va				Hey How's it going
Mi ritmo				My rythm
Bueno pa gosar			It is fun to dance
Dudar					No doubt

Oh I forgot to say that it is a wierd english
translation.  It is like if you tell a joke in
spanish and then tell the english translation it is
not funny.  So the way for it to make sense to those
who "No speka spanishio" it would be:

Hey how's it going
There is no doubt that my rythm is fun to dance.
