Juan Pardo - Gallo de Pelea (English translation)

English translation

Fighting Cock

I will tell you the story of my cousin the archetype
who since he was little, he was the dad's joy
because he imitated him in everything and almost overcame
that silly and fool tone of calling the attention
 
His mother always said he was very handsome and clever
that he'd conquer the world without having to fight for it
and let alone the women, he drove them all wild
and who believed himself clever was wrong
 
Because the cock leaves the pen, and nobody cares about him
he meets in the road with the fox and the ferret
and scapes flying to the mount because the night frightens him
and has to turn around and return to his pen
 
But now the pen is different, because there's another handsome cock
much more clever and stronger than my cousin the conqueror
and you must hang your head when they saw that they knocked you
my dear poor cock, the world conquered you.
 
The world conquered you, when the world must be conquered
loved and tolerated, but also must be mistreated
because the world is a bit disrupted
and also betrayed by this society
Don't be serious because I'm joking
in my mouth flies a white dove completely free.
 
And now get serious, because I'm not joking
look for a white dove... and fly completely free.
 
Fighting cock don't hide anymore
look for a white dove... and fly completely free.
 
Fighting cock don't hide anymore
