"El Pito (I'll Never Go Back To Georgia)" is a Latin boogaloo classic interpreted by Joe Cuba, Cheo Feliciano and Santana.

In 1965, the Joe Cuba Sextet got their first crossover hit with the Latin and soul fusion of "El Pito (I'll Never Go Back to Georgia)". The "Never Go Back To Georgia" chant was taken from Dizzy Gillespie's intro to the seminal Afro-Cuban tune, "Manteca". Jimmy Sabater later revealed that "none of us had ever been to Georgia".
