8 - Te están buscando

Music and lyrics: Rubén Blades

 

watch- out in the neighborhood 
watch-out on the sidewalk
watch-out on the street
watch-out everywhere
there looking for you
 
For your nasty habit of taking- off without paying
For your nasty habit of taking- off without paying
I told you dog
it was going to cost you.
Everybody knows your story
The entire neighborhood knows the truth.
That you gambled some money and lost 
and took off without paying.
 
watch- out in the neighborhood
watch-out on the sidewalk
watch-out on the street
watch-out everywhere
there looking for you

Chorus:
For your nasty habit of taking- off without paying
For your nasty habit of taking- off without paying
For your nasty habit of taking- off without paying

Soneos:
You have broken domino rules
that say that the onlooker should be made of wood
bad boy and now
today you’re going  to get punished.
 
They’re looking for you
a car with a long antenna
full of people with dark glasses
security men
 
Some guys are looking for you
the kind their mother didn’t love as kids,
neither did their dads, and now that they’re grown-ups they like to smack people
Pau, pau, parua...
Pau, pau, parua...
The smell of men
There is a stench of men on Getoutifyoucan street,
and it’s your fault, comrade
some guys are looking for you
to tie you up to a chair
to throw a bucket of water on you with a tiny electric schok
For your nasty habit
 
if the government comes in pushing citizens
and asking everybody for their id card
 
For your nasty habit.
Madame Calalú told me 
something bad was going to happen
again by the neighborhood
a car slowly goes by with the security guys...
