♪♫El Dia De Los Muertos Lyrics♫♪

It's All Souls Day I hear you say It's All Souls day And you've come to play(*) For the lost ones The unadorned ones Here today

El Dia de Los Muertos El Dia de Los Muertos Bailamos, El Xantolo!

Kiss the bride Dance with me Come rattle these bones Come and shake my tree Embrace me irreverently Now with marigolds Shower me!

There is more time than life One never dies twice There is more time than life One never dies twice

Wearing quetzal plumes Through eight underworlds Death comes shining A thousand bright colours And music out of this world Serenades to bony twirl!

Me lleva el diablo La muerte va de viaje Esta es musica del otro mundo Buenos noches y adios Hasta luego mi amigos See you in heaven or See you in hell All will be leveled All will be well Bailamos, El Xantolo!

Me lleva el diablo La muerte va de viaje Esta es musica Del otro mundo

Written By: Lyric credit pending!


NotesEdit

(*) - The official release of the lyrics of this song from the Downside Up booklet, has the word "play", however this is thought to be a typographical error and the word is thought to be "pray" by many fans.
