Alabanza Lyrics


by Usnavi, Nina, Company. From In The Heights.


USNAVI
She was found and pronounced at the scene
She was already lying in bed
The paramedics said
That her heart gave out
I mean, that's basically what they said
They said a combination of the stress and the heat
Why she never took her medicine, I'll never understand
I'd like to think she went out in peace
With pieces of bread crumbs in her hand
Abuela Claudia had simple pleasures
She sang the praises of things we ignore
Glass Coke bottles, bread crumbs, a sky full of stars
She cherished these things
She'd say "Alabanza"
Alabanza means to raise this thing to God's face and to sing
Quite literally "praise to this"
When she was here, the path was clear
And she was just here
She was just here...

NINA
Alabanza
Alabanza a Dona Claudia, Senor
Alabanza, alabanza
Alabanza
Alabanza a Dona Claudia, Senor
Alabanza, alabanza

NINA/DANIELA/CARLA
Alabanza
Alabanza a Dona Claudia, Senor

AND SONNY
Alabanza, alabanza

AND CAMILA/BENNY
Alabanza
Alabanza a Dona Claudia, Senor

AND VANESSA/KEVIN
Alabanza, alabanza

COMMUNITY
Alabanza!
Alabanza!
Alabanza!

USNAVI
Alabanza

[Thanks to Hilary Klapholz, Ariel for lyrics]
