Ya Compa’ Galletano
¿Como sin diente va a mole’?
(bis)

Waí waí waí ila so
Waí waí waí ila so
Waí waí waí ila so
Kó kó wa mole’

Waí waí waí ila so
Waí waí waí ilaso
Waí waí waí ila so
Kó kó wa mole’

Un pa’ kiti Mamá
Un pa’ kiti Papá
Kó wa ne da ikó-o
Ma ilé o…

Un pa’ kiti Mamá
Un pa’ kiti Papá
Kó wa ne da ifó-o
Ma ilé o…

Un pa’ kiti Mamá
Un pa’ kiti Papá
Kó wa ne da ikó-o
Ma ilé o…

Un pa’ kiti Mamá
Un pa’ kiti Papá
Kó wa ne da ifó-o
Ma ilé o… (de un canto de Tumba Francesa)

Solista: Pero kó kó ka íña-a

Coro: Ma ni Lodó, ma ikokó ka íña

yes....finally i get to see Quinto Mayor in action, is that Skip on quinto? it doesn't look like Pedrito's style of playing but I could be wrong it kind of hard to make out, if so where is Pedrito in the back?
