XIBOM BOMBOM

Brom xiborn xiborn bombom
Nom xibom xibom bombom
 
Analyzing
This hereditary chain
I want to get rid of
This precarious situation
 
Where the rich only gets richer
And the poor only gets
poorer
And the reason everybody
already knows
It's that the ones in the top only go up
And the ones in the bottom only go down
 
But I Just want
To educate my children
To raise citizens
With great dignity
I want to have a good life
I want to feed myself with the money I got
I can not afford even to get laid
And the reason everybody
already knows
It's that the ones in the top only go up
And the ones in the the bottom only go down

I would change the lyrics like this:

Where the rich only gets richer
And the poor only gets poorer
And the reason everybody already know:
It's that the ones in the top only go up
And the ones in the bottom only go down
~~
But I just want to educate my children
To raise citizens with great dignity
I want to have a good life
I want to feed myself
With the money I got
I can't afford even to get laid (*)

*"melar" is an informal verb, euphemism for "to have sex".

I think with those changes the translation would sound more natural. I'm a native speaker of Portuguese, btw. This song was simply my childhood :))
