Celia Cruz - La Guagua (İngilizce translation)

İngilizce translation

The Bus

(speaking) take a small step forward dude
I don't know why some people
can't be put up with
when the bus they're awaiting
doesn't finally arrive
Some ask: Last?
others don't get in line1
and there are those that sometimes
disrespect a lady
Noticing that the bus
is arriving at the roundabout
they run people over
as if they were in a conga dance
to climb their way to the door
they push each other
and sometimes the bus suffers
facial disfigurement
and at the next stop
no one wants to move over
and many watch faces
when the driver gets irate
and many watch faces
when the driver gets irate
move over gentlemen
take a step back
why not give a seat
to the old, galantry,
move over gentlemen
take a step back
What I want
is for people to move over
so that I can get in
move over gentlemen
take a step back
to take a step back
to fit more in the back
move over gentlemen
take a step back
give a seat to ole calmness
that has a lame foot
move over gentlemen
take a step back
If people don't move over
this bus is going nowhere
move over gentlemen
take a step back
 
What are you going to see? what will you see?
take a step back
take a small step back my people
take a step back
so those in front can settle in
take a step back
don't hang in front anymore
take a step back
wait for the one that comes later
take a step back
have patience, it's already coming
take a step back
a small step back, please
I'm asking permission
from the present public
help me please, gentlemen
you who are my people
Ladies and gentlemen
consider my work
so that you can get in
those that remained outside
There is a lady
that has a petticoat
that falls
getting in the bus
move over, move over
move over, oh move over
move over, move over (repeat)
Pay attention now
to what I'm going to sing
the problem with the bus
has to change
I know that good people
have culture
because of that they don't
scratch the paint off the bus
When you get to the bus stop
form a line
don't cut in front
of the little girl traveling alone
with hands up there
with hands up there
with hands up there
with hands up there
Oh mama, this has gotten hot
Don't get into it, playing with the current
Oh mama, this has gotten hot
this has gotten hot
'cause too many people came in
Oh mama, this has gotten hot
hot, hot, hot, hot
Oh mama, this has gotten hot
behave yourself gentleman
'cause the lieutenant got in
Oh mama, this has gotten hot
No one else gets in, no one else fits
This has gotten hot
in this bus, no more room
This has gotten hot
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
This has gotten hot
Like sardines in a can, people go
This has gotten hot
I'd better get off on 20th Street
This has gotten hot

Thank you Jamilet, my suggestions:
subir a la puerta > climb their way to ...
en la conga > in a (conga) party [or may be a conga dance]
a la vieja caridad > [it's a wordplay:] to the old[fashioned] galantry
que se echen para atrás > to take ...
dale el asiento a panchita > ... to ole calmness
los que quedaron abajo > ... outside (of the minibus)

Thank you, Jami. I added the missing video. One line is not needed - "off the bus". That's why your translation looks longer than the lyrics.

May I advice you to reformat the lyrics? The way it is now it's difficult to compare your translation with the lyrics. I think the more stanzas, the easiest it would be to read it. Maybe at least the same way like here: http://www.coveralia.com/letras/la-guagua-celia-cruz.php or here: http://www.albumcancionyletra.com/la-guagua_de_celia-cruz___9408.aspx

Thank you my friends, I'll take a look and correct it soon. I'm going to post a translation that I would really appreciate help with then call it quits for tonight. Thanks again.
