My mom wanted to know what the song in El rio del Tiempo in Mexico said. So, I wrote to Disney and asked them if they could please send me the lyrics to the song. After two weeks of waiting they send it so I'll share with all of you. The parts in spanish are translated (by Disney).


Vistas de Mexico:
- Lyrics by F.X. Atencio Music by Armando Corral

Welcome, mis amigos
To friendly Mexico
To the land of fiestas
They're everywhere you go
Listen to marimbas
And mariachis, too
Playing Latin rhythm
And serenading you
Come join the crowd
The music's good and loud
The air is full of song
So come and sing along
Because in Mexico
When people smile at you
There's just one thing to do
Join the fiesta too



Fiesta In Mexico:

- Lyrics by F.X. Atencio Music by Armando Corral

So long, happy people
We hate to see you go
Hurry back, amigos
To friendly Mexico
Come on back to Taxco
To Acapulco, too
Pretty Señoritas
And Charros wait for you
We'll meet again
In tropical Cancun
In charming Mazaltan
Or maybe in Tulum
Because in Mexico
When folks meet now and then
They never say "good-bye"
It's "till we meet again"
Hasta La Vista!

I have to admit I couldn't get that song out of my head after my last trip. Only, I didn't know what they were saying. Thanks for posting.:D
