Ah! Great Babal¨! I'm so lost and forsaken. Ah great Babal¨, 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 Babal¨! Bring her back to me. Ah! Great Babal¨! I'm so lost and forsaken. Ah great Babal¨, 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 Babal¨! Bring her back tome. Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! Babalu aye! ***** BABAL┘ 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 ***** BABAL┘ (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)
