Puso un baile un jutia, para una gran diversion.
De timbalero un raton, que alegraba el
campo un dia.
Un gato tambien venia, elegante y placentero,
'Buenas noches, companero'
siempre dijo asi el timbal
'Para alguien aqui poder tocar,
para descansar un poco'.
Salio el raton medio loco,
'tambien voy a descansar'.
Y el gato en su buen bailar, bailaba un
danzon liviano.
El raton se subio al guano, y dice
bien placentero:

    Dm                 Am   (tune1) 
ˇY ahora si quieren bailar, busquense otro timbalero!


Ay candela, candela, candela, me quemo a'e.

Oye, Faustino Orama' y sus companeros,
necesito que me apaguen el fuego.
Margarita llama pronto a los bomberos para
que vengan a apagar el fuego.
Oye, si estas perdida llama a los siete ceros,
y asi vendran mas pronto los bomberos.
Ay candela, candela, candela, me quemo a'e,
mama ˇAaaay!

About the artist behind Candela Chords:

The Buena Vista Social Club was a members club in Havana, Cuba that held dances and musical activities, becoming a popular location for musicians to meet and play during the 1940s. In the 1990s, nearly 50 years after the club was closed, it inspired a recording made by Cuban musician Juan de Marcos González and American guitarist Ry Cooder with traditional Cuban musicians, some of whom were veterans who had performed at the club during the height of its popularity.

The recording, named Buena Vista Social Club after the Havana institution, became an international success, and the ensemble was encouraged to perform with a full line-up in Amsterdam in 1998. German director Wim Wenders captured the performance on film, followed by a second concert in Carnegie Hall, New York City for a documentary that included interviews with the musicians conducted in Havana. Wenders's film, also called Buena Vista Social Club, was released to critical acclaim, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary feature and winning numerous accolades including Best Documentary at the European Film Awards.

The success of both the album and film sparked a revival of international interest in traditional Cuban music and Latin American music in general. Some of the Cuban performers later released well-received solo albums and recorded collaborations with international stars from different musical genres. The "Buena Vista Social Club" name became an umbrella term to describe these performances and releases, and has been likened to a brand label that encapsulates Cuba's "musical golden age" between the 1930s and 1950s. The new success was fleeting for the most recognizable artists in the ensemble: Compay Segundo, Rubén González, and Ibrahim Ferrer, who died at the ages of ninety-five, eighty-four, and seventy-eight respectively; Segundo and González in 2003, then Ferrer in 2005.
