CUBA LIBRE by Gloria Estefan

The place that I come from I barely remember
The place that I come from I barely remember
The soul of my people will be with me forever
The soul of my people will be with me forever

You're hard to forget though we're apart
You live in my heart

Swept by an ocean of beautiful memories
Swept by an ocean of beautiful memories
Of people and places that I carry within me
Of people and places that I carry within me
The place that I come from I barely remember
The place that I come from I barely remember
The soul of my people will be with me forever
The soul of my people will be with me forever

You're hard to forget though we're apart
You live in my heart

Quiero mi Cuba libre (I want my my Cuba free)
Pa que la gente pueda (So that the people can)
Pa que mi gente pueda bailar (So that my people can dance)
Quiero mi Cuba libre
Pa que la gente pueda
Pa que mi gente pueda bailar

I pray that the rain will bathe you in freedom
Only music and laughter be heard on the breeze
And forever after our dance will continue
And I will at last Get to see you again

You're hard to forget though we're apart
You live in my heart

Quiero mi Cuba libre (I want my my Cuba free)
Pa que la gente pueda (So that the people can)
Pa que mi gente pueda bailar (So that my people can dance)
Quiero mi Cuba libre
Pa que la gente pueda
Pa que mi gente pueda bailar
