Me puse a estregar un negro
A ver si color cogía
Me puse a estregar un negro
A ver si color cogía
Y mientras mas lo estregaba
Mas negro se me ponía
Y mientras mas lo estregaba
Mas negro se me ponía

El negro no monta en coche
Niunque pague su dinero
El negro no monta en coche
Niunque pague su dinero
Y por mas que arre el cochero
Siempre le coge la noche
Y por mas que arre el cochero
Siempre le coge la noche

Yo iba para arriba
Y pase por Bonao
Yo, yo iba para arriba
Y pase por Bonao
Tu a mi me diste agua
En un jarro to’ pichao
Tu a mi me diste agua
En un jarro to’ pichao

Los que no venian
Han llegado ya
Los que no venian
Han llegado ya
Y los que venian
Han quedado atrás
Y los que venian
Han quedado atrás

Guantanamera
Guajira guantanamera

Lyrics

English version: 

Girl from Gantanamo
Country girl, girl from Guantanamo
Girl from Gantanamo
Country girl, girl from Guantanamo
Girl from Gantanamo
Country girl, girl from Guantanamo

I started to scrub a black man
To see if he took on some color
I started to scrub a black man
To see if he took on some color
And the more I scrubbed him
The blacker he got
And the more I scrubbed him
The blacker he got

A black man can’t take the bus
Even if he pays his money
A black man can’t take the bus
Even if he pays his money
And as hard as the bus driver pushes
The night always catches up to him
And as hard as the bus driver pushes
The night always catches up to him

I was headed North
And I passed through Bonao
Me, I was headed North
And I passed through Bonao
You, you gave me water
In a pitcher that was all full of holes
You, you gave me water
In a pitcher that was all full of holes

The ones who weren’t coming
Are already here
The ones who weren’t coming
Are already here
And the ones who were coming
Have been left behind
And the ones who were coming
Have been left behind
