Canta ríe bebe
zambomba

zambomba

 

Lyrics

1. Me he comprado una zambomba-bomba
Un pandero y un tambor-or
Y “pá” completar la fiesta
Los cacharros del fogón
Cógete unas tapaderas-eras
Que no hay que dejar dormir-ir
Ni al de arriba ni al de abajo
Ni al que tiene guarda aquí

Refrain
Canta, ríe, bebe, que hoy es Nochebuena
Y en estos momentos no hay que tener pena
Dale a la zambomba, dale al almirez
Y dale a tu suegra en mitad la nuez

2. Esta noche hasta los guardias, (guardias)
Pescan una borrachera, (era)
Por eso no tengo miedo
A que nadie me detenga
Hasta mañana temprano, (ano)
No me tengo que acostar, (ar)
Pues esta noche me ha dado
Por cantar y por bailar.

Refrain 2
Canta, ríe, bebe, que hoy es Nochebuena
Y en estos momentos no hay que tener pena
Dale a la zambomba, dale al violín
Dale a la cabeza y canta feliz

3. Al chico de mi portera, (era)
Hoy le han traído en camilla, (illa)
Por pedir el aguinaldo
Al tendero de la esquina
Al tendero de la esquina (ina)
Que ha tenido la atención (on)
De tirarle a la cabeza
Un pedazo de turrón. Refrain

Refrain 3
Canta, ríe, bebe, que hoy es Nochebuena
Y en estos momentos no hay que tener pena
Dale a la zamboma, dale a la sartén
Y dale al tendero un tiro en la sien

Translation

Sing Laugh Drink

1. I have bought a “zambomba”
A tambourine and a drum
And to complete the fiesta,
The pots from the stove.

Grab yourself some lids
And not to let anyone sleep
Not those up or down
Nor those who are guarding us

Refrain 1
Sing, laugh, drink, because today is Christmas Eve
And in these moments, there’s no reason to be shy
Give it the zambomba, give it the pestle,
Give to your mother-in-law the middle of the nut.

2. Tonight even the guards,
fish drunk,
which is why I’m not worried
that anyone will stop me

Until tomorrow morning
I don’t need to go to bed
So this night I have given myself
To singing and dancing

Refrain 2
Sing, laugh, drink, because today is Christmas Eve
And in these moments, there’s no reason to be shy
Give it the zambomba, Give it to the violin
Give it to the head and sing happily.

3. My caretaker’s boy
Today they’ve brought him on a stretcher
For asking for a Christmas gift
From the grocer on the corner

From the grocer on the corner
Who was paying attention
To throw at his [the boy’s] head
A piece of nougat

Refrain 3
Sing, laugh, drink, because today is Christmas Eve
And in these moments, there’s no reason to be shy
Give it the zambomba, Give it to the pan
Give it to the grocer a shot in the temple.
