    Lyrics

    Hola! Soy Celia Cruz
    Y estoy aqui con Wyclef, celebrando Carnival; Azucar!!)
    [singing] Guantanamera
    [Wyclef] We out here in Miami just shining
    [singing] Guajila, Guantanamera
    [Wyclef] Worldwide
    [singing] Guan-tana-mera
    [Wyclef] Bout to bring it to you in stereo
    [singing] Guajila voy, de na meda
    Yo soy un hombre sincero
    [Wyclef] That was then, this is now
    Welcome to the Carnival, the arrival... c'mon!
    [singing] De donde crecen las palmas

    [Wyclef Jean]
    Spanish Harlem! Oahh-eee-ohh!
    Boogie Down Bronx! Oahh-eee-ohh!
    Manhattan! Oahh-eee-ohh!
    Back to Staten! Oahh-eee-ohh!

    Guantanamera
    Hey yo I'm standing at the bar with a, Cuban cigar
    Guajila, Guantanamera
    Hey, yo, I think she's eyeing me from afar
    Guan-tana-mera...
    Guajila Guan-tana-mera...

    Verse One: Wyclef Jean

    Yo, I wrote this in Haiti, overlooking Cuba
    I asked her what's her name, she said, 'Guantanamera'
    Remind me of an old latin song, my uncle used to play
    On his old forty-five when he used to be alive
    She went from a young girl, to a grown woman
    Like a Virgin, so she sex with no average mahn
    Peep the figure, move like a caterpillar
    Fly like a butterfly, let your soul feel her glide
    Pac Woman better yet Space Invader
    If your name was Chun-Li, we'd be playin Street Fighter
    Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for your kiss
    A dime if you tell me that you love me

    Chorus:

    Guantanamera
    Hey yo, I'm standin at the bar with a, Cuban cigar
    Guajila, Guantanamera
    Yo, I think she's eyeing me from afar
    Guan-tana-mera...
    Guajila Guan-tana-mera...

    [singing in Spanish, with Wyclef responses]
    Soy una mujer, sincera
    Do you speak English?
    De donde crecen las palmas
    Can I buy you a drink?
    Soy una mujer, sincera
    Uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh
    De donde creeeeeeecen las palmas
    You killin me
    Y antes de morir, yo quiero
    ..
    cantar mis versos del alma
    Te quiero mama, te quiero!!

    Guantanamera
    Aiyyo I'm standing at the bar with a, Cuban cigar
    Guajila, Guantanamera
    Hey yo John Forte, she's eyeing me from far
    Guan-tana-mera...
    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]
    Guantanamera
    Hey yo I'm standing at the bar with a, Cuban cigar
    Guajila Guantanamera
    Hey yo... I think she's eyein me from afar
    Guan-tana-mera...
    Guajila Guan-tana-mera...
