Singin' Papa Legba, come and open the gate
Papa Legba to the city of camps
Now we're your children, come and ride your horse
In the night, in the night, come and ride your horse

There is a queen of six and sevens and nines
Dust in your garden, poison in your mind
There is a king that will steal your soul
Don't let him catch you don't let him get control

Rompiendo la monotonia del tiempo
Rompiendo la monotonia del tiempo

Papa Legba come and open the gate
Papa Legba to the city of camps
Now we're your children, come and ride your horse
In the night, in the night, come and ride your horse

In the night in the night come and ride your horse
In the night in the night come and ride your horse
In the night in the night come and ride your horse
In the night in the night come and ride your horse
