C'mon! (¡Y Andale!)

English translation

C'mon!

What will they say, those at your house
When they see me drinking?
They'll think that it's because of you
that I live getting drunk.
C'mon!
 
But if you saw how nice they are,
These drinking binges.
C'mon!
But how long until your parents
quit taking care of you?
C'mon!
 
Every time that I come to see you
I always go sliding.
Is it that I have bad luck,
Or is it that it's raining on me?
C'mon!
 
But you saw my hat drying (chako)1 in
in my fig tree slope.
C'mon!
But since when do I dry my hat
on my flowering fig tree?
C'mon!
 
You tell me that I am a fool
Because I'm always getting drunk
And in spite of your insults
I want to keep on drinking.
C'mon!
 
But if you saw how nice they are,
these drinking binges,
C'mon!
 
But how beautifully I pass the time
emptying bottles.
C'mon!
 
But if you saw how nice they are,
these drinking binges,
C'mon!
 
  • 1. A chako is a tall military dress hat, sometimes adorned with a feather

¡Y Andale!

¿Que dirán, los de tu casa
Cuando me miren tomando?
Pensarán que es por tu causa
Que yo me vivo emborrachando,
