From Wikipedia
“Oye Como Va” is a song written and composed by Latin jazz and mambo musician Tito Puente in 1963 and popularized by Santana’s cover of the song in 1970 on their album Abraxas, helping to catapult Santana into stardom with the song reaching #13 on the Billboard Top 100. The song also reached #11 on Billboard’s Easy Listening survey and #32 on their R&B chart.

Oye como va (Literally) Listen to how it goes (Colloquially “Hey what’s up” or “Hey how’s it going”)
Mi ritmo My rhythm
Bueno pa’ gozar (Literally)It’s good for partying, (Colloquially)”Good for celebrating” or “Good to enjoy”)
