Song Description

Welcome to Cuba! Here's a Salsa song that tells the story of the life of the great singer, Celia, Cruz.

Lyrics

Whenever Celia Sings
©2007 by Marla Lewis

A little girl in Havana
Sings her brothers and sisters to sleep
Senores y senoritas
Stop to listen, you can't hear a peep
Except for luscious melodies
That sound like rolling waterfalls
And hummingbirds in mango trees
Now all Havana's smiling

Cele-bration
Music soars on heaven's wings
Sweeter than sugar (Azucar!)
Whenever Celia sings (cuando canta Celia)
Whenever Celia sings (cuando canta Celia)

The little girl grows up singing
Joins a popular Cubano band
Sonora Mantancera
They spread a new music throughout the land
She brings it to America
New York, Miami, Hollywood
Then Europe, Asia, Africa
She's crowned the Queen of Salsa!

Timbales! Trompetas!
Rhumba, mambo, jazz that swings
Sweeter than sugar (Azucar!)
Whenever Celia sings (cuando canta Celia)
Whenever Celia sings (cuando canta Celia)

Whenever Celia sings
There is dancing
(Cuando canta Celia)
Stars are beaming above
Whenever Celia sings
There is laughter
(Cuando canta Celia)
There is love

We hear delicious melodies
That sound like rolling waterfalls
And hummingbirds in mango trees
Now all the world's rejoicing!

Cele--bration
Music soars on heaven's wings
Sweeter than sugar (Azucar!)
Whenever Celia sings
Timbales! Trompetas!
Rhumba, mambo, jazz that swings
Sweeter than sugar (Azucar!)
Whenever Celia sings (cuando canta Celia)
Whenever Celia sings (cuando canta Celia)
Whenever Celia sings! (cuando canta Celia)
Whenever Celia sings!
