Se escucha el sonar de tambores
Anuncian la misa pa'l que tenga fe
Y en medio de la noche oscura
Avanzan los fieles con rumbo al bemb

Se oye el repique'l tamb
Ecos de un viejo cantar
Olofi, Lofi y Vilat
En medio e'la oscuridad
Y sigue vibrando la noche
al compás bolero del coquioyamba
Los negros se agarran las manos
Repitiendo a coro
el viejo cantar
Se oye el repique del oyamba
Van cantando los niches de madruga

Oye mi canto abacua
Ay, a prisa negro que la misa va a empezar
Oye mi canto abacua
Yo por eso le canto porque yo se que el santo me pue' ayudar
Oye mi canto abacua
Le pedimos la libertad
Oye mi canto abacua
Campanas, campanas, campanas llamando estan
Oye mi canto abacua
Abasi vigila en la oscuridad.

Abasi es tambores abacua
Cantando de madruga
Abasi es tambores abacua
Se escucha el misterioso cantar
Abasi es tambores abacua
Son los niches que te vienen a rezar
Abasi es tambores abacua
Mis tambores abacua

Abasi es tambores abacua
abasi
Abacua

Este es mi canto abacua

Oye mi canto abacua
Ay, tambores de madruga
Oye mi canto abacua
Ayofi veme a ayudar
Oye mi canto abacua
Oye mi canto abacua
Oye mi canto abacua
