Fin De Semana



Estoy contento, llego el fin de semana

Cuando la gente descansa del oficio

Unos se quedan a descansar en casa

Los otros se van a brindar con los amigos.

I am happy when the weekend arrives
When people rest from work
Some stay home to rest
Others go out with friends to toast.


Despues del yugo nos vamos de pachanga

En mi carcacha levanto a mi preciosa

Y desde el punto nos vamos para el ambiente

A la zarzuela y a bailar cumbia sabrosa

After work we go to the pachanga (party)
On my old car I pickup my precious girl
And from there we go where the people are
To the theater, and to dance cumbia sabrosa


Porque bailando, bailando la cumbia

Me fortalezco y me olvido de las penas

Y donde arribo, tamores y cumbia

Yo soy feliz bailando con mi morena

Because dancing and dancing the cumbia
Strengthens me and I forget my sorrows
And when I arrive, the sound of drums & cumbia
Im happy dancing with my morena


Y la rutina que igual nunca se acaba

Primero es el trabajo y despues es el guateque

En cada fiesta no puede faltar la cumbia

Y todo el mundo bailando se divierte.

And this routine that never ends,
First work, then there is the party
There is no party without the cumbia
And everybody enjoys dancing !

Repeat Verse 2 & Verse 3
