Pal’ viejo oeste you know

Que Dios te multiplique lo que me deseas
Yo tengo la salud pa’ enfrentar la mala marea
Donde tengo los pies mucho me quieren ver la cabeza
En esta selva de cemento hay fiera por naturaleza
Pero, al gran caballo, grandes espuelas
No le tengo miedo a los grandes problemas
Pero por dinero si honradamente me lo gano yo prefiero
Ser dueño de un peso que ser esclavo de dos (you know)
Es que se venden entiende

May God multiply what you wish for me
I have the health to face the bad tide
They want to see my head where I have my feet
In this jungle of cement there is a beast by nature
But, to the great horse, big spurs
I’m not afraid of big problems
But I prefer to earn money honestly
Being the owner of a peso instead of a slave for two (you know)
Understand that they sell themselves

Que hasta los ojos marrones cuando los ven cambian a verde
Favor con favor se paga (fácil)
En estos tiempos que vivimos ni el agua sale de gratis
Dar pa’ recibir no es dar sino pedir
Buscando tu beneficio podria encontrar el fin
Estaré pidiendo mucho con un poco de lealtad
No me hablen de confianza a caso se olvidaron que

Even brown eyes turn green when they see it
A favour is paid back with a favour (easy)
In this times not even water is free
Giving to receive is not giving but asking
Looking for your benefit you could find the end
I will be asking a lot with little loyalty
Don’t talk to me about trust in case you forget that

Un santo era San Pedro
(Oh, oh, oh)
Y negó a su maestro, yeh-eh-eah
Un santo era San Pedro
(Oh, oh, oh)
Y negó a su maestro, yeh-eh-eah

San Pedro was a saint
(Oh, oh, oh)
And he denied his teacher, yeh-eh-eah

Con dinero, sin dinero siempre yo hago lo que quiero
Vivo por mi propia ley, sin corona soy un rey
Con el pan necesario que hicieron yo doy gratitud
De que me pare ser un millonario y no tener salud (ajá)
De que te vale trabajar como un animal
Cuando te levantas en la sala de un hospital
De que te vale ser cruel dime
Si tu eres el mismo diablo yo seré tu San Miguel
Cuanto habladores no se caen cuando su boca abren
Con la lengua nadaran en un charco de sangre
No pongas en tela de juicio la hombría de nadie
Porque a quien le gusta quedar como un cobarde
Pero si quieren la victoria los ignoraras
Perdiendo a veces en la vida uno gana mas
Uno a uno ellos caeran y después te llamaran
Tus sabios perdonaran desconfiando al igual porque

With money, without money I always do what I want
I live by my own laws, I’m a king without a crown
With the necessary bread that they made I give thanks
That they stop me from being a millionaire and not having good health (aha)
What’s the use of working like an animal
When you wake up in a hospital hall
Tell me what’s the use of being cruel
If you’re the same devil I’ll be your Saint Miguel
How many talkers don’t fall when you open your mouth
With the tongue they’ll swim in a pond of blood
Don’t question anyone’s manhood
Because who likes to look like a coward
But if they want victory you’ll ignore them
Sometimes one wins more by losing in life
One by one they’ll fall and later they’ll call you
Your wise men will forgive the distrusting because

The stones in my path will rejoice if I were to lose
