  1. Latin Music

Lyrics

I’d just turned seven when the Perez family moved next door
They played these crazy records I had never heard before
Celia Cruz and
Tito Puente
Willie Colón….

That’s when I fell in love with Latin music,
Felt the rhythm flow through my body and my soul
Smiled like the Buddha, losin’ all my blues
With Salsa and Merengue on the radio

I taught in Spanish Harlem, children there delighted me!
Milk chocolate skin and almond eyes and curiosity
In the playground
They danced to
Cocoroco

That’s when I fell in love with Latin music,
Felt the rhythm flow through my body and my soul
Smiled like the Buddha, losin’ all my blues
With Salsa and Merengue on the radio

When I feel tired to the bone
That Latin Music gets me goin’!

Solo

I’ll always be in love with Latin music…
Feel the rhythm flow through my body and my soul
Smile like the Buddha, losin’ all my blues
With Salsa and Merengue on the radio
