A ti, papá, que nos mira desde el cielo, velando con muchos celo, que el changüí no morirá.
A ti, papá, no podemos despedirte, pues tú nunca podrás irte, tú siempre regresarás.
Con el changüí, que bajaste de la loma, lo trajiste pa´ La Habana, lo hiciste internacional.
El changüí guantanamero forma parte del folclor, y por eso lo tocamos con orgullo y con amor.
Hoy tus hijos dedicamos nuestro empeño para ti, cultivamos la semilla del changüí.

Por ti, papá, seguiremos adelante, pues nos falta ya bastante, y no vamos a parar.
Tu charangón, para muchos fue la escuela, después hicieron estrellas no te pueden olvidar.
Tu música la seguiremos tocando. Tu relevo está luchando y nunca se cansará.
Guantánamo te recuerda con orgullo, este pueblo te hizo suyo, y en el siempre vivirás.

Coro x5: Hoy le cantamos con orgullo a Elio Revé, papá.

Bendíceme, bendíceme, Señor quiero claridad.
Es el padre de la salsa, nunca se le olvidará.
Ay, gracias a la vida que me ha dado tanto.
El changüí nació en el monte, y te lo canta El Sinsonte.

Coro x3: Es que tu pueblo te quiere, es que tu pueblo te llora.

Es que tu pueblo te quiere, te quiere, te quiere, es que tu pueblo te llora, te llora, te llora.
Tú siempre regresará a la tierra que te añora.
Por eso todos los músicos cubanos te decimos Señor, papá.

In English
For you, daddy

For you, daddy, who is looking at us from heaven, who is keeping watch so that the changüí won’t ever die.
For you, daddy, we can’t bid you farewell, because you will never be able to leave us, you will always return.
With the changüí that you brought down from the hillock, that you brought to Havana and made international.
The changüí from Guantanamo is a part of the folklore and because of this we play it with pride and love.
Today your children dedicate their work to you. We cultivate the grain of the changüí.

For you, daddy, we will keep on going forward, because we still have a long way to go and we won’t stop.
Your band was a school for many. Later they have become famous stars and they won’t forget you.
We will keep on playing your music. Your heritage is still fighting and will never rest. Guantanamo remembers proudly, this village made you their own and you will always be a part of it.

Chorus x5: Today we sing proudly for daddy Elio Revé.

Bless me, bless me Father, I want clarity.
He is the Father of the salsa and we will never forget him.
Oh, I want to thank life for giving me so much.
The changüí was born in the hills and Sinsonte is singing it to you.

Chorus x3: Your village loves you, your village is weeping for you.

Your village loves you, loves you, loves you, your village is weeping for you, weeping for you, weeping for you.
You will always return to the land that is missing you.
That’s why all the Cuban musicians call you Father, daddy.
