Rice and beans, hopes and dreams,

Salsa dancing to the beat-

No matter what, no matter where,

Because Cuba lives in me.


A new haven we must find

If we want “libertad”,

Goodbye “familia”, I don’t know when

We shall ever meet again.


In search of freedom we leave our land,

But never forget those we left behind.

“Abajo Fidel!” He soon will fall

And freedom will smile upon us all.


So don’t cry, I promise that

In my heart you’ll always be.

And while in America I live,

Cuba will always live in me.
