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.
