The Dance of the Poor

I don't have much money but I have some copper, here we dance like the poor dance.
I don't have much money but I have some copper, here we dance like the poor dance.
 
Monsieur, here came your Robin Hood to hit the balls in the holes like Tiger Woods.
You belong to the upper-class and I to the lower-class, you wear silk and I wear straw.
We complement each other like a couple, you drink distilled water and I drink water with microbes.
Your life is easy, mine is quite arduous, you sweat perfume and I sweat work.
You have a chauffeur and I go on foot, you eat steak and I canned meat.
Our resemblance is microscopic, but for you I melt like "gringo" in the tropic.
Touch me, you won't get contaminated and with a little kiss we're gonna get the swine flu.
 
We don't need money to dance, we need swing and some hot music.
Hot music, ho-ho-ho-hot music.
I don't have much money but I have some copper, here we dance like the poor dance.
Hot music, ho-ho-ho-hot music.
I don't have much money but I have some copper, here we dance like the poor dance.
 
We dance without table cloth, cutlery or tray, like trying to eat your partner.
We dance very close like "bachata" without suit or tie, intoxicating the neurons with cheap vodka.
White, yellow or mulatta, we dance with any chick who wants to go down.
The good thing of being poor at the end of the day is that nobody steal from us because we don't have anything.
 
Very tight like in a sardine can, grabbing buttocks so as to get tips.
They say you're the queen of all the rose gardens, but today I'm gonna make you descend four social classes.
Very warm like the baker's bread, sweeping the floor with your bottom.
All the fat expanding on the terrace, I want you to do what you can't do at home.
 
We don't need money to dance, we need swing and some hot music.
Hot music, ho-ho-ho-hot music.
I don't have much money but I have some copper, here we dance like the poor dance.
Hot music, ho-ho-ho-hot music.
I don't have much money but I have some copper, here we dance like the poor dance.
