En La Esquina (Down On The Corner)

Cerca de la tarde si andas de patín
Ven a descolgarte que yo te espero aquí
Cuatro cuates de onda vienen a tocar
Aunque a muchos rucos eso no les va a gustar
 
Y por la esquina los podrás oír
Como le tupen sabroso para hacerte sonreír
 
"Lentes" con su lira sabe como requintear
"Greñas" en el bajo te hace hasta temblar
"El Güero" se la saca dándole al tambor
Y "Pelos" en el ritmo es muy fiera, sí señor
 
Y por la esquina los podrás oír
Como le tupen sabroso para hacerte sonreír
 
Y por la esquina los podrás oír
Como le tupen sabroso para hacerte sonreír
 
Los que están oyendo ya lo saben bien
O le dan al baile o se van a más de cien
Es mal saque de onda no querer bailar
Sin pensar que el ritmo aquí los hace alivianar
 
Y por la esquina los podrás oír
Como le tupen sabroso para hacerte sonreír
 
Y por la esquina los podrás oír
Como le tupen sabroso para hacerte sonreír
 
Y por la esquina los podrás oír
Como le tupen sabroso para hacerte sonreír

Around The Corner

Near the afternoon if you are skating
Come to unwind I'll be waiting for you here
four cool guys have come to play
although a lot of old people will not like it
 
and around the corner, you can hear them
how they play energetically to make you smile
 
"Glasses" with his Lyra he knows how to play
"Messy" on the bass will make you shake
"Blondie" sure knows how to play those drums
and "Hairy" on the rhythm is very fierce, yes sir
 
and around the corner, you can hear them
how they play energetically to make you smile
 
and around the corner, you can hear them
how they play energetically to make you smile
 
Everyone that has heard it knows it very well
They either give in to the dance or they go over a hundred
it's wrong to not want to dance
without thinking that the rhythm here will bring you up
 
and around the corner, you can hear them
how they play energetically to make you smile
 
and around the corner, you can hear them
how they play energetically to make you smile
 
and around the corner, you can hear them
how they play energetically to make you smile
 
Thanks!

Hi Colin!
This is a good translation but I'm giving you some suggestions:

Ven a descolgarte --- Come to relax/ Come to unwind ("Get off the hook" has a different meaning).
How they play with the tasty energy to make you smile --- How they play energetically to make you smile ("tasty energy" sounds quite odd to describe a way of playing music. This idea of " playing sabroso" is implied in "energetically").
"Blondie" takes off by giving it to the drum --- "Blondie" sure knows how to play those drums (Here a more metaphorical translation is better than a literal one).
