    About

    "La Bamba" (pronounced: [la ˈβamba]) is a Mexican folk song, originally from the state of Veracruz, best known from a 1958 adaptation by Ritchie Valens, a top 40 hit in the U.S. charts and one of early rock and roll's best-known songs. Valens' version of "La Bamba" is ranked number 354 on Rolling Stone magazine′s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It is the only song on the list sung in a language other than English.

    "La Bamba" has been covered by numerous artists, most notably by Los Lobos, whose version was the title track of the 1987 film La Bamba and reached No. 1 in the U.S. and UK singles charts in the same year. The Los Lobos version remained No. 1 for three weeks in the summer of 1987. The music video for Los Lobos' version, directed by Sherman Halsey, won the 1988 MTV Video Music Award for Best Video from a Film.

    Lyrics

    Para bailar la bamba
    Para bailar la bamba
    Se necesita una poca de gracia
    Una poca de gracia para
    Mi para ti
    Y arriba, arriba
    (Y arriba, arriba, por to sere)
    (Por ti sere', por ti sere')

    Yo no soy marinero
    Yo no soy marinero
    Soy capitan, soy capitan
    Soy capitan

    Para bailar la bamba
    Para bailar la bamba
    Se necesita una poca de gracia
    Una poca de gracia para
    Mi para ti
    Y arriba, arriba
    (Y arriba, arriba, por ti sere')
    (Por to sere', por ti sere')

    Bamba, bamba (la bamba)
    Bamba, bamba (la bamba)
    Bamba, bamba
    (Bamba, bamba)
    (Para bailar la bamba)
