Ojala que llueva Cafe - May it rain Coffee

I was just watching a video that I should share here... it's a song that was very popular in Mexico and South America in 1990 the singer is Juan Luis Guerra and the name of the song is "May it rain Coffee" it is in Spanish and it would be very hard to translate it into English (and still make sense or sound as poetic as it sounds in Spanish) but I will share the translation of one of the verses of the song:

So that down on the farm, there isn’t so much suffering, oh man,
May it rain coffee in the countryside.
So that in Los Montones they hear this song,
May it rain coffee in the countryside…
So that all the children, sing in the countryside,
May it rain coffee in the countryside.
So that in La Romana they hear this song,
May it rain coffee in the countryside...

Here is the video.... so many memories of my early teen years...
