Pata Pata
Miriam Makeba Lyrics


Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata
Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata

Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata
Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata
Pata Pata is the name of the dance
We do down Johannesburg where
And everybody starts to move
As soon as Pata Pata starts to play

Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata
Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata

Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata
Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata

Every Friday and Saturday Night
It’s Pata Pata time
The dance keeps going all night long
Til’ the morning sun begins to shine

Portuguese version, as people used to sing it when I was ten:
"Eu 'tou com pulga na cueca
Coça aqui, coça lá
Eu 'tou com pulga na cueca
Coça aqui, coça lá
Maria vai, Maria vai
Aqui, coça mais
Maria vai, Maria vai
Aqui, coça mais".

In the Caribbean, I was raised on this music, it made me cry. I just found it again. Love it!

I grew up listening to this song my father would always play this song at 7.20 am 1/17/2021 I turn on my TV accidentally turn the channel to 22 instead of 23 and immediately draw my attention to Pata Pata playing and bring back memories of nearly 50 years

She will remain the best

Although it's not Caribbean, it does fit with that kind of vibe
