La salsa que te traigo      The salsa that I'm offering you
es salsa con ritmo de son   is salsa with the rhythm of son
condimentado con bongo      spiced with bongo
y con sabor a guaguanco     and the flavor of guaguanco
oyelo bien.                 listen to me now.

(coro)                      (chorus)
Que me den de tu salsa,     I'm your friend the salsa
                compay
que me den de tu salsa.     friend salsa am I.

--Compay salsa, version by Vitin Aviles
