Guajila, Guantanamera

Hey yo John Forte, she’s eyeing me from far


Guajila Guan-tana-mera


[Verse Two: Lauryn Hill]


Yo, she was a rose in Spanish Harlem, mamacita beg your pardon

Make stakes at a faster rate then she fornicates

Pure traits of genius, Goddess of Black Venus

Crab niggaz angry cause they can’t get between us

to no sele-xion, smooth complex-ion

The lexicon of Lexington, parents came from Cuba

Part Mexican, pure sweet, dimes fell to her feet

She like Movado, and shook her hips like Delgado

And broke niggaz down from the Grounds to Apollo

and then some, she took her act sent it to dim sum

And waited patiently while the businessmen come

Call late on purpose, got even politicians nervous

And made plans to infiltrate the street secret service

This gentle flower, fertility was her power

Sweet persona, Venus Flytrap primadonna

Que sera que sera she turned dinero to dinera


[Wyclef responds to singing again]


Hey yo I’m standing at the bar with a, Cuban cigar

Guajila Guantanamera

Hey yo… I think she’s eyein me from afar


Guajila Guan-tana-mera…
