The one you have is imcomplete. There is some old Greek for the Kyrie Eleison which is Lord have Mercy, but whoever translated confused that Greek and the Spanish. The Kyrie Eleison part is actually the only part that's in Greek. The rest is pretty much Spanish.

Not sure what the above comment is about but pretty much the song can't really be translated. It's not from Old Greek nor is it even Spanish. Aguanile Mai Mai is from Yoruba dialect in the Latin Caribbean it is part of the Santería religion and refers to one of our Gods. The song would not make sense to attempt to translate to English. But the jest is about a Spiritual Cleansing...

"Kyrie Eleison" is greek and it means "Lord have mercy" and "Christe Eleison" means "Christ have mercy"
