Cuban singer Ibrahim Ferrer singing Marieta.
Lyrics in English

Chorus- I like it when Marieta dances

Listen, Ibrahim, you're singing great.
Teresita, let me introduce Marieta.
That rhythm's really wild.
Who doesn't like to dance with Marieta?

I've got some evil ways
that upset even me. (X2)
I retire to my bed
but wake up in another's.

I like it when Marieta dances.

I like to sing
for Marieta.
Listen, Marieta
everyone wants to dance with you.
This song is really tasty.

Let's tell everybody about Marieta.

Last night I was celebrating
a special saint's night.
I could smell the cod
and I said: "They're cooking over there."
And I burst into song
to remember it better
but it turned out that
what I could smell
was a pot of
boiling underclothes

That black girl can really dance.
Teresita, soon you'll know Marieta.
Listen, Ibrahim.
I'm already getting to know her.
I'll get you a ticket
to go and see Marieta.

My mother told me
to sing and have fun.
My mother told me
to sing and have fun.
but never, Ibrahim
to interfere in
other people's affairs.

That's why I want to meet Marieta
I know you know her well.
That's a lie, Teresita
I don't know Marieta.
Ibrahim, you're making
a fool of yourself.

My wife was suffering
from an illness of the heart in Havana.
So the doctor came one morning
to examine her.
He took off her dress,
her panties, too, and her slip,
but when I saw that indecency
I said: "this isn't good,
I really don't think my wife's heart
is that far down."
Listen, Galban, let's go and see Marieta.

chorus: with Marieta
