Jorge de la Vega - Inadaptación (English translation)

Spanish

Inadaptación

Esta canción es para usted
que vive más tranquilo
si toma té de tilo.
Esta canción es para usted
que conserva el estilo
a fuerza de café.
 
Es para los que,
con aspirina, revivimos
si el ánimo declina.
Para los que, con uso moderado
de alcohol y nicotina,
nos hemos adaptado.
 
Nos adaptamos a estar contentos
aunque la mufa vaya por dentro,
nos adaptamos a hacer aspavientos
de tener mucho, aunque sea cuento.
 
Nos adaptamos a estar sonrientes
aunque seamos indiferentes,
nos adaptamos a los parientes,
a los ministros y al presidente.
 
Nos adaptamos a nuestro empleo
aunque no sea lindo ni feo,
nos adaptamos a pasar el invierno
aunque el invierno resulte eterno.
 
Nos adaptamos a cualquier cosa
mientras no sea muy espantosa,
nos adaptamos sin preguntarnos
para qué cornos adaptarnos.
 
Esta canción es para usted
que vive tan tranquilo
sorbiendo té de tilo.
Esta canción es para usted
que conserva el estilo
a fuerza de café.
 
Pero hay que proceder con impaciencia
y controlar las dosis de prudencia,
pues puede que un buen día de repente
cambie todo y tengamos que empezar
nuevamente.
 
Y readaptarnos a estar contentos
aunque otra bronca vaya por dentro,
y readaptarnos a hacer espamento
no tener guita y andar sin vento.
 
Y readaptarnos a estar sonrientes
aunque sigamos indiferentes,
y readaptarnos a otro intendente,
y otros ministros y presidentes.
 
Y readaptarnos a un nuevo invierno
que no mejore las cosas un cuerno,
y readaptarnos a un nuevo trabajo
que tampoco nos interese un carajo.
 
Y readaptarnos a ser cualquiera
menos el tipo que uno debiera,
y readaptarnos sin preguntarnos
cuándo empezamos a recontrarreadaptarnos.
 
Esa canción es para usted,
¿Prefiere una dimetil amino fenil pemetil pirazolona
o un toque de rapé?

Maladjustment

This song is for you
who lives more calm
if you drink linden tea.
This song is for you
who keeps the style
by coffee force.
 
Is for those who,
with aspirin, we revive
if the spirits go down.
For those who, with moderated use
of alcohol and nicotine,
we had adjusted.
 
We adjust ourselves to be happy
even if the jinx goes inside,
we adjust ourselves to do a song and dance
of having a lot, even if it's a lie.
 
We adjust ourselves to be smily
even if we're indifferent,
we adjust ourselves to the parents
the ministers and the president.
 
We adjust ourselves to our jobs
even if it isn't pretty or ugly,
we adjust ourselves to go through winter
even if the winter becomes endless.
 
We adjust ourselves to anything
as long as it isn't very scary,
we adjust ourselves without wondering
what's the point of adjusting.
 
This song is for you
who lives so calm
drinking linden tea.
This song is for you
who keeps the style
by coffee force.
 
But we must proceed with impatience
and control the dose of caution,
because it could be that one day suddenly
everythign changes and we have to start
again.
 
And readjusting ourselves to be happy
even if another anger goes inside,
and readjusting ourselves to do a song and dance
not having money and go broke.
 
And readjusting ourselves to be smily
even if we keep being indifferent,
and readjusting ourselves to another intendent
another ministers and presidents.
 
And readjusting ourselves a new winter
that doesn't improve things a damn,
and readjusting ourselves to a new job
that we don't give a damn either.
 
And readjusting ourselves to be anyone
except the man one should be,
and readjusting ourselves without wondering
when we'll begin to readjust for the nth time.
 
This song is for you,
Do you prefer a dimethylamino fenil dimetil pyrazolone
or a touch of Snuff ?
