Do You Feel It
Joe Cuba Sextet Lyrics


do u feel it?
yes i feel it
i feel my beloved barrio, my ghetto.
do u feel it?
this is the story of where i was born.
no man's land
it's in the 115th street and the 125th
everyones . talking about the barrios, about the ghettos,
about the hard times they had,
we had hard times, we had good times too.
i can remember the summer,
summertime was beautiful, days were long
we didnt need any ocean breeze
to the left we had hustle land
to the right the east river
when we wanted to refresh ourselves.
who needed the ocean,
we had the pub
remember the johhny pub
all we needed was it a good good screwdriver and a can
and we were refreshed.
and night the breeze was beautiful.
top beach, that was our beauty place
and we had, we had fun a lot.
when i were home
my mother was beautiful
our food was really together
rice and beans, thats also our food
with a little cuchifritos in the side
and for a little dessert we had mavi,
the grooviest taste and trigger want to try
everything was beautiful to me
margeritto, my beautiful barrio, my ghetto.
do u feel it?
yes i feel it but i feel it in another way.
i feel the pressure that keeps us down.
do u feel it?
yes i feel it, i feel it baby but i feel it in another way.
do u feel it?
el barrio is the place thats up town
do u feel it?
i feel, i feel, i feel and the wait
do u feel it?
thats were feel and hate is common place
do u feel it?
i said it, tell you about being hungry
do u feel it?
up town, thats the place,
thats margeritto bounds
do u feel it?
i used to love it there
the place where i was born
do u feel it?
but somewhere theres a better place
when i finally, i'll be gone, gone, gone, gone.
do u feel it?
i feel it
i feel it in my bones
do u feel it?
go and search for another, another home.
do u feel it?
said i feel it
feel it in my bones
do u feel it?
do u feel it?
some days i'll be gone, gone, gone
do u feel it?
i feel it yes
i feel it
do u feel it?
the ...bounds
do u feel it?
i feel it
i feel it
got to get away
do u feel it?
got to get away
got to get away
got to get away
do u feel it?

do u feel it?

This was the original Tico master, the way my dad cut it in the studio (Allegro Sound, NYC). I heard this as a kid. The subway sound effects were added much later. Fania got the Tico label from Roulette Records in 1974. My dad was born in Harlem, and there's some shared experiences if you grow up in the 'hood, no matter if you speak Spanish or not.

Thanks for the history.

Sean Edwards

@lailisima - It's not a mix.. It's the way this song was released on the Fania label. The singer is Ray Pollard, who is one of the greatest singers that ever lived. What's beautiful about this track is this is true NY... the melting pot.. Black, white, Spanish, whatever.. People got along a lot better than "The West Side Story" makes people think. Yes, there was some tension but nder it all, Ny'ers are Ny'ers, regardless "what" they are.

I AGREE AND I LOVE THIS TRACK,,,RIP JOE
