Ah! Great Babalù! I'm so lost and forsaken. Ah great Babalù, bring back the love you've taken. You can restore all the dreams that once were mine If only you'll use some mystic sign. Ah! Great Babalù! Bring her back to me. Ah! Great Babalù! I'm so lost and forsaken. Ah great Babalù, bring back the love you've taken. You can restore all the dreams that once were mine If only you'll use some mystic sign. Ah! Great Babalù! Bring her back tome. Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! ***** BABALù Desi Arnaz Babalu Babalu Babalu aye Babalu aye Babalu Jungle drums were badly beating In the glare of eerie lights: While the natives kept repeating Ancient jungle rites. All at once the dusky warriors began to Raise their arms to skies above A a native stepped forward to chant to his Voodoo Godess of love. Ah! CHORUS Great Babalu! I 'm so lost and forsaken Ah, great Babalu ***** BABALù (Spanish version) Desi Arnaz Babalu Babalu Babalu aye Babalu aye Babalu Ta empezando lo velorio Que le hacemo a Babalu Dame diez y siete velas Pa ponerle en cruz. Dame un cabo de tabaco mayenye Y un jarrito de aguardiente, Dame un poco de dinero mayenye Pa' que me de la suerte. Yo CHORUS Quiere pedi Que mi negra me quiera Que tenga dinero Y que no se muera Av! Vo le quiero pedi a Babalu 'na negra muy santa como tu que no tenga otro negro Pa' que no se fuera. 2nd VERSE (CONCLUSION) [Repeated 10 times:] Babalu a ye! ***** (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - March 2005)
