Testo della canzone The Tenth World di JONI MITCHELL
Baila mi rumba
Batela, goza y mira mama
Baila, mira mama
Batela, goza, mira eh
Rumbando bello es que yo voy
Bailala bailala bailala
Bailala baila baila
Eh eh mama
[??????] Baila baila my rumbo[?] Ele eh ele eh
Bailala bailala baila
Din din baragadin dan dan [this is onomatopoeia] Baila baila baila baila
Venezolano en Nueva York
En California y en todos lados
Te la traigo
Para que vos…para que gozes gozes cosa buena
Gozes con todo el mundo
El africano y todo el mundo
Izquierdo! Izquierdo! Vamos, oye!
[onomatopoeic sounds, interjections, sighs, whistling, bits of dialogue among the musicians that sound like instructions or encouragement to keep on playing and dancing] Me voy
Me voy
Me voy
Me voy
Me voy
Me voy
Me voy
Me voy

Beat it, enjoy, look

Dance to it, dance
Dance this way [This a tentative translation, the expression I hear is actually unidiomatic] Dance to it, dance
A Venezuelan in New York [maybe referring to himself] In California and everywhere
I bring it to you [the rumba] So that you will enjoy a good thing
Enjoy it with the rest of the world
With the African and the rest of the world
Dance to it
Gringos! [This is funny. Gringo is a pejorative way that some South Americans have to refer to Anglo-Saxons. It’s clear that some Americans are actually dancing to the music in
