Todo el mundo me pregunta, ¿como aprendiste a bailar?
Si ustedes quieren saberlo, acérquense y les cuento.

Les voy a contar la historia
De como aprendí a bailar

Caminando por las montañas
Un oso me paró


El oso me dijo que buscaba pareja
Y una cumbia pa’ gozar
Con un guiño me invito a una fiesta
Con la promesa de bailar

Me guió al bosque profundo
Al destino la música nos llevo
Entre los árboles, encima de los troncos
Osos bailando

Las patas se movían
Al ritmo de cumbia

También eran osos MUUUUUY GRANDES
Y bailaban así

Bailamos toda la noche
Cada uno un paso me enseñó
Bailamos toda la noche
La cumbia del oso
La cumbia del oso


Everyone asks me, how’d you learn to dance?
If you want to know, come closer and I’ll tell you.

I am going to tell you the story
Of how I learned to dance

Walking through the forest
A bear stopped me

It was a VERRRRY BIG bear

The bear said he was looking for a partner
And a cumbia to get down to
With a wink he invited me to a party
And promised me a dance

He led me deep into the forest
The music led us to our destination
Among the trees and on the stumps

Their paws were moving
To the rhythm of cumbia

They were also REALLLY BIG bears
And they danced like this

We danced all night
Each bear taught me a different step
We danced all night
The cumbia of the bear
The cumbia of the bear
