Songs About Immigration, Part 3 - Manu Chao - Clandestino

Posted by Gomez Comes Alive!, January 13, 2008 11:16pm | Post a Comment
Solo voy con mi pena
Sola va mi condena
Correr es mi destino
Para burlar la ley
Perdido en el corazón
De la grande Babylon
Me dicen el clandestino
Por no llevar papel
Pa' una ciudad del norte
Yo me fui a trabajar
Mi vida la dejé
Entre Ceuta y Gibraltar
Soy una raya en el mar
Fantasma en la ciudad
Mi vida va prohibida
Dice la autoridad
Solo voy con mi pena
Sola va mi condena
Correr es mi destino
Por no llevar papel
Perdido en el corazón
De la grande Babylon
Me dicen el clandestino
Yo soy el quiebra ley
Mano Negra clandestina
Peruano clandestino
Africano clandestino
Marijuana ilegal
Solo voy con mi pena
Sola va mi condena
Correr es mi destino
Para burlar la ley
Perdido en el corazón
De la grande Babylon
Me dicen el clandestino
Por no llevar papel

Songs About Immigration, Part 2 - The Clash - Straight To Hell

If you can play on the fiddle
How's about a British jig and reel?
Speaking king's English in quotation
As railhead towns feel the steel mills rust water froze
In the generation
Clear as winter ice
This is your paradise

There ain't no need for ya
Go straight to hell boys

Y'wanna join in a chorus
Of the Amerasian blues?
When it's Christmas out in Ho Chi Minh City
Kiddie say papa papa papa papa-san take me home
See me got photo photo
Photograph of you
Mamma mamma mamma-san
Of you and mamma mamma mamma-san
Lemme tell ya bout your blood bamboo kid.
It aint coca-cola it's rice.

Straight to hell
Oh papa-san
Please take me home
Oh papa-san
Everybody they wanna go home
So mamma-san says

You wanna play mind-crazed banjo
On the druggy-drag ragtime U.S.A.?
In parkland international
Hah! Junkiedom U.S.A.
Where procaine proves the purest rock man groove
And rat poison
The volatile molatov says-

Pssst...
Hey chico we got a message for ya...
Vamos vamos muchacho
From alphabet city all the way a to z, dead, head

Go straight to hell

Can you really cough it up loud and strong
The immigrants
They wanna sing all night long
It could be anywhere
Most likely could be any frontier
Any hemisphere
No man's land and there ain't no asylum here
King Solomon he never lived round here

Go straight to hell boys

Mago De Oz (Wizard Of Oz) is a metal band out of Spain. Their sound is quite unique, to say the least. It is Metal, Celtic music and also has some folky elements. Think Iron Maiden meets The Dropkick Murphys and Jethro Tull.




Songs About Immigration, Part 1 - Maldita Vecindad: Mojado

Posted by Gomez Comes Alive!, January 12, 2008 07:24pm | Post a Comment
Maldita Vecidad Y Los Hijos Del Quinto Patio is a legendary band from Mexico, D.F. They started in the mid-80's and are still going strong. "Mojado" is from their first album. It is song about someone who left for El Norte for a better life and died on the way and how the death affects the people they left behind.

Yo sabía que te ibas a ir
hoy por fin te vi partir
Yo temía que te ibas a ir
hoy tu voz la oí decir:
"Yo me voy de aquí,
me voy de aquí.
No tengo nada que darte a ti
El otro lado es la solución
por todas partes
se oye el rumor:
yo me voy de aquí"
Te ví partir
Ahora estoy sola
sola sin ti
Yo te ví partir
partir , partir, partir

Ya son dos días que no estas aquí
Hoy Pedro corre gritando hacia mí
Trae en la mano un diario gris
hay una nota perdida entre mil
que habla de ti
Habla de ti
"MOJADO MUERTO, AL INTENTAR HUIR"
No dice nada, no hay explicación
eras un cerdo oculto en un camión,
que quiso huir
Lloró por ti
A mis espaldas oigo decir:
"Yo lo ví partir,
partir, partir, partir"
