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

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

For The Metalheads Pt. 1 - Metal en Espanol: Mago De Oz

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.




AMOEBA GETS LOVE FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES

Amoeba Music Hollywood got much love from today's (Jan 13th) New York Times in the Sunday paper's supplemental Travel section as part of its weekly "36 Hours" feature. Each week "36 Hours" focuses on a certain town, city, or small region, offering up a list of the essential things to do -- imagining that one has only a thirty-six hour period to spend in that place. And for this week's "36 Hours in Hollywood," Times travel writer Jennifer Steinhauer picked twelve essential stops in Hollywood, including Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles, the ArcLight Cinema, and of course Amoeba Music on Sunset.

Under the heading "Before iPods," Steinhauer, who allocated a little under two hours for the Amoeba stop, wrote: "From Roscoe’s, it’s a fast walk to Amoeba Records (6400 Sunset Boulevard, 323-245-6400; www.amoeba.com), one of the last great independent record stores in the country, where new and used CDs and DVDs are found by the mile. There are also live in-store performances (with a special emphasis on up and coming Los Angeles bands)."

To see the full article pick up today's NY Times (avail in most major cities) or check the article posted on the New York Times website. Note that the printed version also includes a nice photo of the main floor of Amoeba looking down from the stairwell by the DVD section.
