Thread Name: How to learn a song in another language?
Subject: RE: How to learn a song in another language?
Addition to the above: This song is written from the perspective of a man preparing for a ritual to Babalu Aye, a Santeria god, with seventeen candles in the shape of a cross, and aguardiente. It's his prayer that the god give him the love of his girlfriend, (a black woman=negra) luck, and protection for them both. It's a religious song (but not a hymn).
