Radio 60, side A, track 1: “Oye Mi Canto (Hear My Voice)” by Gloria Estefan

Gloria Estefan - Oye Mi CantoOh, Gloria Estefan, now this is the way to start off a brand new tape!  A “pure song” AND a kick-ass song all in one!  According to the cover of this particular tape, I started recording this one in late April, so it was probably still a little chilly outside, and what better way to combat the soul-sucking Minnesota chill than with some Latin heat, eh, Gloria Estefan?  I can oye tu canto all damn dia, mi amor, so I think that’s what I’m going to do.  Nice to know those high school Spanish classes paid off just a teensy bit.

“Oye Mi Canto (Hear My Voice)”

<awesome Gloria Estefan jam>

Take meeeee

Only for what I am

You’ve got a right to speak your mind
Gotta take a stand

No one

Has the right to say

This is right or that is wrong, it isn’t just one way

Find common ground
Go in between
Things aren’t always
What
They
Seem

Some daaaaay

It’ll be all right

Changeeees

Happen overnight

People

Let’s give each other room

If we’re gonna work it out
Better make it soon

Love is

Love is such a common word

When it’s pride we mistake for love
Isn’t that absurd

Why always take
The upper hand
It’s better to
Un
Der
Staaaaaand

Some daaaaay

It’ll be all right

Changeeees

Happen overnight

Some daaaaay

It’ll be all right

Changeeees

Happen overnight

Oye mi canto

(Oye mi canto)

(Oye mi canto)

I believe in love but with no conditions (oye mi canto)

And giving in sometimes doesn’t make it submission (oye mi canto)

Hate is so common it’s almost tradition (oye mi canto)

Come on let’s leave it behind and make that transition (oye mi canto)

Oye mi canto

Oye mi canto (oye mi canto)

(Oye mi canto) oye oye mi canto

(Oye mi canto)

Some daaaaay

It’ll be all right

Changeeees

Happen overnight
