In The Heights the Musical - Alabanza Lyrics

Original song "Alabanza" from the musical In The Heights is written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

USNAVI:
She was found and pronounced at the scene
She was already lying in bed
The paramedics said
That her heart gave out
I mean, that's basically what they said
They said a combination of the stress and the heat
Why she never took her medicine, I'll never understand
I'd like to think she went out in peace
With pieces of bread crumbs in her hand
Abuela Claudia had simple pleasures
She sang the praises of things we ignore
Glass Coke bottles, bread crumbs, a sky full of stars
She cherished these things
She'd say "Alabanza"
Alabanza means to raise this thing to God's face and to sing
Quite literally "praise to this"
When she was here, the path was clear
And she was just here
She was just here...
