Hi De Ho Man



Emperador del Cotton Club, rey del scat, príncipe del jive, consorte del swing, precursor del soul y el funky, tremendo showman, cantante, bailarín, director de orquesta y actor ocasional.

El único, inconmensurable, impar, insuperable y genial Cab Calloway.

Presten especial atención a la letra de la canción, ni el plomazo de Bob Marley en sus mejores tiempos, y eso que este fragmento pertenece a una película del año 35.

¡Apueste siempre al negro!

Reefer Man
Man whats the matter with that cat there?
Must be full of reefer.
Full of reefer?!
Yeah man.
You mean that cats high?!
Sailing.
Sailing lightly.
Get away from here.
Man is that the reefer man?
Thats the reefer man.
I believe hes losing his mind.
I think he's lost his mind!"

Oh have you ever met that funny reefer man,
have you ever met that funny reefer man,
If he said he swam to China, and he sell you South Carolina,
then you know your talk to that reefer man.

Have you ever met funny reefer man,
If he said he walks the ocean, any time he takes the notion,
then you know your talk to reefer man.

Have you ever met this funny reefer man,
oh baby, baby, baby reefer man,
if he trades you dimes for nickles,
and calls watermellons pickles,
then you know your talk to that reefer man.

If he takes a sudden ming,
he'll want to give you Pennsylvania,
oh you know your talking to the reefer man.
If he said one sweet is funny,
because he wont sell me Atlantic,
then you know your talkin to that reefer man.
