The Lyrics

Got an edict from Fidel, start using peso's
We've been using dollars now since '93
Just use peso's to buy cigars
Peso's to drink in bars
That's the deal, that's the deal

Chorus:
You can't use the dollar bill no more in Cuba
Fidel's pissed off more than ever, that's for sure
Can't use the dollar down in Cuba
To fish or to scuba
Til it snows
Til it snows

Old Fidel is out of his head
Just use the peso, man, to buy your bread
Cubans aren't free to move ahead
They wanna love home
Don't use the dollar in Havana
It won't buy bananas
Til it snows, til it snows

Repeat Chorus

Will you tell the US folks thanks for the money
Our Miami relatives sent lots of dough
We will store some under bedsprings
Store some in our pantries
Give us a break, give us a break

You can't use the dollar bill no more in Cuba
Castro's pissed off more than ever, that's for sure
Can't use the dollar down in Cuba
To fish or to scuba
Til it snows, til it snows
