Cuba Cuba Libre by Ace of Base

Cuba, cuba here I come
There's a place in the caribbean sun
Land of future
Land of dreams
Checking for the coast

Cuban cigars
And the lass lass in the bars
I see the rise and the fall
Of this down downtown Miami
Give me someone to dance with and love
When the sun goes down
While Fidel is growing his hair

Cuba, cuba here I come
There's a place in the caribbean sun
Land of future
Land of dreams
Checking for the coast
Cuba, cuba here I come
There's a place in the caribbean sun
Land of future
Land of dreams
Checking for the coast

Cuba, cuba libre
(It's Ace of base)
Cuba, cuba libre
Uh huh

Share in the sun
Givin' us some taps
That's still the one
Where coca cola and coke
Have arrived for consumers
It's so happy and warm
It's a country down in the south
We like it
The people and nature

Cuba, cuba here I come
There's a place in the caribbean sun
Land of future
Land of dreams
Checking for the coast
(Cuubaaaaa)
Cuba, cuba here I come
There's a place in the caribbean sun
Land of future
Land of dreams
Checking for the coast

Cuba, cuba libre
In the sun, in the sun
(It's Ace of base)
Cuba, cuba libre
Uhmm ah ahh

Cuba, cuba libre
The world is coming over to ya,to ya
Cuba, cuba libre
The world is coming over to ya,to ya
Cuba, cuba libre
The world is coming over to ya, to ya
Cuba, cuba libre
The world is coming over to ya

Cuba, cuba here I come
There's a place in the caribbean sun
Land of future
Land of dreams
Checking for the coast
(Cuubaaaaa)
Cuba, cuba here I come
There's a place in the caribbean sun

Well I've never been to Cuba so I can't really fully appreciate this one. It does seem to literally be about celebrating Cuba. Here is what I know about Cuba:


It is full of people who can't come here.
It has good cigars
There was once some sort of crisis there in the 60's
People talk funny there

Not quite sure why anyone would be so exited to go there.

Well I'll be damned, I thought after these guys saw the sign that opened up their eyes, they were done creating music.

But no, here they are singing about Cuba.

Or they're singing about a Cuban rum and coke with a lime, because that's what a 'Cuba Libre' is.

My belief is that they're pretending to sing about Cuba, but they're really singing about the drink, because they're all a bunch of lushes.

Yes ace knows nothing of booz or cuba. And that talking funny is called Spanish berv. Maybe you've failed to notice 90% of the people in California speak it. I want to go to cuba. I want to see where earnest hemmingway died in a shootout to liberate cuba from comunist nazi in the civil war.
