Voy por el mar vengo en mi lanchita, a buscar me amor
Traigo cosa rica
Ella espera con todo carino, me da su bombon y yo
Le doy lo mio

Poquito para aqui, poquito para alla
Poquito para arriba, poquito para abajo
Poquito para aqui, poquito para alla
Se baila esta cumbia

Yo soy un hombre me gusta lo bueno
Y gozar tambien, con la de mis suenos
Ya me handa por mi morena, yo la quiero ver
Y darle cosa buena

Poquito para aqui, poquito para alla
Poquito para arriba, poquito para abajo
Poquito para aqui, poquito para alla
Se baila esta cumbia

I can't believe this tune only has a 6 rating. Saw them do a live acoustic show last week and they played this amongst many others from their catalogue. Superb. Definitely one of the best live acts touring these days. Outstanding musicians. Everyone was up dancing.
 

*Sigh*.  So many good cumbias out there...

Lotta' very good musicians in this band.
Reminds me a lot of Ozomatli. Which is a very good thing in my book.
c.
These guys are badazz!
Now howzabout some narcocorridos?
This song makes me dance.

And the accordion! 
I adore this! There's no such thing as a bad cumbia!
No pizza ballerina?  Now that's just downright cruel.

Whether or not you like this song is one thing, but comparing Los Lobos to Status Quo or the one trick ponies that were Chas n Dave just makes me shake my head. I can only assume that either you haven't heard much stuff by Los Lobos or you've heard too much stuff by Quo and it's addled your pate.
 
Well, they may be 9,999 trick ponies, but couldn't this still be just a trick? After seeing them live, I'm pretty sure Los Lobos can just about pull off anything they want to.
Fun!! Please also play from Calexico!

After a year of Latin my teacher retired and was not replaced, so I switched to Spanish (or more precisely Castilian, since there are several Spanish languages). I've been living in Mexico for the last four decades. Is this an example of the butterfly effect?
Ah, Perfect!!! I'm at home making/canning salsa from my garden produce. Thanks, Bill!{#Bananasplit}

Reminds of the those old spanish dudes and that annoying song.....Macarena! {#Stop}{#Naughty}
This is played way too often :^ /
Gawd...where's the mute button! {#Stop}
Sounds like a Nescafe commercial - yuck!

..yes, it will play in BCS as we watch a dick hacked off and then stuffed into the man's screaming mouth: Poquito para aqui.

The longer I watch them dance, the more I start to believe they were made for this song... 
Caribbean...at-moment beach-front on a glorious island that embraces this gorgeous Los Lobos rythmn...! Timing of Radio Paradise is yet-again impeccable...!
Wish I took Spanish instead of Latin in high school...
Bring on those dancing bananas!

You can say that again!

Takes me back, makes me want to go back, to Pereira, Cartagena, y Mompos — some places where Cumbia grabbed hold of my soul!
Infectious.  Can't keep my hips still.
Who cares if I don't speak Spanish!  Music is the Universal language and I love this song! 
I know no Spanish but I love all of Los Lobos' Spanish singing, 
I have played the heck out of their all Spanish singing album "La Pistola y El Corazon"
Lláme (anda) por mi morena (?)

This is written: "Ya me anda por mi morena", it means something like "I'm eager to be with my brown woman"

Thanks! It's quite edifying to see a translation! I think it's a great tune. Now when I have the opportunity I can put it on the jukebox and know what I'm subjecting everyone else to. ;-)
Me gusta muchisimo!
Catchy little ear worm. Bouncing in my office chair.
I like it!
After spending 13 years in the Dominican Republic I always perk up when I hear a good latin tune,...and this is one!  An 8 from me.  These guys have a wide range of talent.
love this stuff.

Great song! Gets you movin'!
This is a good album, and tracks like this one are great live, they just simmer along.

I can't embed youtubes in song comments for some reason but here's a good video. When I saw them this summer, the songs were so new, they had the sheet music in front of them, and I see Cesar does here, too...
