  • Para bailar la bamba
    Para bailar la bamba se necesita una poca de gracia
    Una poca de gracia pa' mi pa' ti y arriba y arriba
    Ah y arriba y arriba por ti seré, por ti seré, por ti seré

    Yo no soy marinero
    Yo no soy marinero, soy capitán,
    Soy capitán, soy capitán

    Bamba bamba

    Para bailar la bamba
    Para bailar la bamba se necesita una poca de gracia
    Una poca de gracia pa' mi pa' ti ah y arriba y arriba

    Para bailar la bamba
    Para bailar la bamba se necesita una poca de gracia
    Una poca de gracia pa' mi pa' ti ah y arriba y arriba
    Ah y arriba y arriba por ti seré, por ti seré, por ti seré

    A little over one month earlier on June 21st, 1987 Los Lobos' "La Bamba" entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #87; and on August 23rd, 1987 it peaked at #1 (for 3 weeks) and spent a total of seven weeks on the Top 10...
    It also reached #1 in Canada, Spain, France, Ireland, New Zealand, and Sweden...
    Twenty eight years earlier in 1959 Ritchie Valen's original version of the song peaked at #22 for 1 week, and that was the position it was at on the day that he died (February 3rd, 1959)...
    In 1966 Trini Lopez covered it, his version stayed on the Top 100 for 5 weeks, peaking at #86...
