This song is a cover of the Jesse & Joy original, but I prefer using this one because it is more upbeat and, most importantly, the Jesse & Joy video is not appropriate to show at school (sex scene at the beginning (albeit mild) and gambling/drinking/smoking). I’d recommend checking out the Jesse & Joy version on your own time; it is a beautiful song! But for class…use this one.
Click here to download a lyrics sheet that I created for the song. It contains a little background about Cumbia, the band, and pictures of two agapornis (lovebirds). I taught the song during my «Camina o corre» Unit.
