Peret - El muerto vivo (English translation)

English translation

The living dead (Rhymed translation)

Versions: #1#2
My buddy Blanco Herrera
has earned one day his pay
and without thinking twice
he went to throw it away,
 
He had a full week partying
and he has lost his head
and as he didn't come back home
they all thought he was dead,
 
Chorus:
And he wasn't dead no, no, no
and he wasn't dead no, no, no
and he wasn't dead no, no, no,
he was just drinking beer, lerelele
and he wasn't dead no, no, no
and he wasn't dead no, no, no
and he wasn't dead no, no, no
chévere que chévere.
 
But after many days
of not knowing his spot
they've found a dead person,
a dead man who looked a lot,
 
They mounted him a vigil,
the novena he was given,
they buried him with sorrow
and his debts were all forgiven.
 
        {Chorus}
 
But one day he appeared
living and happy like none,
"You all got the wrong dead, ha!"
he told everyone,
 
The fuss that it was made
doesn't need to be said,
his wife doesn't want him,
doesn't want to sleep with a dead.
 
He wasn't dead, no,
he was in a party. (x2)
 
My buddy Blanco Herrera

He wasn't dead, no,

        {Chorus}
 
And he wasn't dead no, no, no,
he was just drinking beer, lerelele.
And he wasn't dead no, no, no
chévere que chévere, chévere.
