This song blends a high energy array of grooves such as colobian "chande" with venezuelen "tambores" and an insidious rythmic pattern from a typical snare drum section there
Sudden appearance of "bata" drums along with a happy trumpet solo, and choruses that explode into a thick unison of voices resembling a big party.
This is a "party" song, where everything is magical, happy, and exhiliarating. It says "this night is far from being over, we are going to have fun until the sun comes up".

Van llegando
They are arriving

La fiesta va a comenzar
The party is about to begin

Esta noche la parranda
Tonight is the big party

No tiene como acabar
It has no end

Ya se escuchan
Now they are listening to

Las notas
The notes

Del acordeon
Of the accordian

De gaitas que enamoran al repique de la tambor
Of flutes that love the beating of the drum

Que suenen los cueros
How the skins sound

Todo es alegrнa
All is happy

Se pendio el jaleo
Its lost in the din

Que toque la chirimia
How plays the oboe
-------------------
Coro:

Se formo el jologorio
The merryment is building

Y la algarabнa
And so is the din

Que esto no es ningъn velorio
This no wake

Todo es alegrнa (x 2)
All is happy
------------------

Sigue el baile
The dance continues

Hoy vamos a amanecer
Today we going till dawn

La noche va muriendo y hay fiesta por nacer
The night is dying and the party is born

Que alegrнa
What happyness

Tenerte junto a mнto have you by my side

La vida es mбs bonita
Life is more beautiful

Cuando se quiere asi
When it is so

Un beso a mis viejos
A kiss to my old pals

Un trago pa'don facunfo
A toast for father time

Esto si esta bueno
This is so good

Lechona pa todo el mundo
Food for everyone

-------------------
Coro:

Se formo el jologorio
The merryment is buliding

Y la algarabнa
And the din

Que esto no es ningъn velorio
This is no wake

Todo es alegrнa (x 2)
All is happy

------------------

A la noche respira ilusiуn
The night breaths magic

De augurios que le lanzan
Of best wishes that are cast

Al viento soсador
On the singing winds

Mil historias
Thousand tales

Se tejen mas alla
They weave beyond

De vidas que abrazan
They embrace life

De amores que vendran
Of loves to come

Que suenen los cueros
How the drumskins sound

Todo es alegrнa
All is merry

Se prendio el jaleo
Its lost in the din

Que toque la chirmia
How plays the oboe
-------------------
Coro:

Se formo el jologorio
The merryment is buliding
