Day 09: A song that you can dance to

I'm no dancer. I'm not good at it. Nor do I enjoy it. Obviously there are some occasions when one cannot run away and has to dance. But voluntarily there isn't a big chance you'd catch me on the dance floor.

Having said that, I have to go back in time about 18 years. I went to live and work in the Dominican Republic for a year. And where dancing is fun in Europe, in the Dominican Republic, it is considered a way of life. If you can walk, you can also dance. To me this wasn't necessarily true, but spending a huge amount of time there also forced me on the dance floor more often than what's good for me.

So I have to admit, after several months I got the hang of Merengue for a bit. I didn't look like the average tourist who just threw his whole body into the music but learned that dancing the Merengue meant dancing from the hips. I was still nowhere near the Dominicans themselves, didn't even consider Salsa or Bachata, both way out of my league, but I danced a reasonable Merengue.

The most popular band in those days were the Coco Band. Some Dominican friends dragged me along to an open air concert early 1993. I was impressed. Not that I was a huge fan of the band, but to see a huge crowd of all ages enjoying themselves was a real joy. I was used to concerts being visited by people between 16 and 30. Here I saw a grandfather, grey, dance with his granddaughter, about 8 years old. I even saw a little girl that was barely able to stand, must have been less than a year old, but still wiggling her little bum. I then realized that I was over twenty years too old to learn to dance. Dancing is not in my blood.



Coco Band - Pa lo coquito

Este tema va dedicado
a todos los padres
Espero que escuchen
la voz de su hijo
En esta canción
Pero con coco...
PA LO COQUITOS!

Uja!

No entiendo por qué
Siempre me pelean tanto
Yo no comprendo por qué
Siempre me pelean tanto
Si yo lloro, si soy travieso
Si me hago pipí en la cama
No hay que pegarme por eso

Zap cu jú!
Zap cu jú!
Zap cu jú!

AUNQUE NO ME LLEVEN A VER
A MICKY MOUSE
O AL PATO DONALD
Eso no es problema,
eso no es problema
Eso no es vital,
eso no es vital
Lo único que queremos
que no nos contesten mal

Zap cu jú!
Zap cu jú!
Zap cu jú!

PA' LO COQUITO

NO QUEREMOS BOCHE
NO ME DEN FUETAZO
Lo que quiero es cariño
Para siempre estar feliz
Cuando papi y mami llegan
Le decimo así

LLEGO PAPA, LLEGO MAMA
PAPI, PAPI, MAMI, MAMI
MI PAPI MIO, MI MAMI MIA
NO QUEREMOS BOCHE

Cuando papi y mami llegan

Lo que quiero es cariño
Para siempre estar feliz
Cuando papi y mami llegan
Le decimo así

LLEGO PAPA, LLEGO MAMA
PAPI, PAPI, MAMI, MAMI
MI PAPI MIO, MI MAMI MIA
NO QUEREMOS BOCHE

LA COCO BUSCANDO LECHE
PA NOSOTROS...

PA LO COQUITO, PA LO COQUITO
PA LO COQUITO, PA LO COQUITO
PA LO COQUITO, PA LO COQUITO
PA LO COQUITO, PA LO COQUITO

NO QUEREMOS BOCHE
NI COCOTAZO
TIENEN QUE ENTENDER
QUE SOMO MUCHACHO...
