Rico montuno fusionao
Rico montuno

Homenaje al elegante
De los géneros cubanos
Son montuno y fusionao
Y un poquito de cha cha cha.

Rico montuno fusionao
Rico montuno

Aunque ustedes no lo crean
El montuno tiene moña
Con su cadencia y ritmo sin igual
Pa’ bailarlo apretaito
Mira que rico.

Rico montuno fusionao
Rico montuno

cadencioso pa’ cantar, muy rico pa’ bailar
para tocar montuno no hace falta papel

Rico montuno
