Hago versos, señores, hago versos,
Pero no me gusta que me llamen poetisa,
Me gusta el vino como a los albañiles
Y tengo una asistenta que habla sola.
Este mundo resulta divertido,
Pasan cosas, señores, que no expongo,
Se dan casos, aunque nunca se dan casas,
A los pobres que no pueden dar traspaso.
Sigue habiendo solteras con su perro,
Sigue habiendo casados con querida.
A los déspotas duros nadie les dice nada,
Y leemos que hay muertos y pasamos la hoja,
Y nos pisan el cuello y nadie se levanta,
Y nos odia la gente y decimos: ¡La vida!
Esto pasa señores y yo debo decirlo.

- "¡Hago versos, señores!" , Gloria Fuertes

I introduce you to my friends
& that's the last I see of you
All the world's discovered my big secret
Everyone's in love with you

They're fascinated by your smile
They copy all the things you do
I wish that you & I could be together, but
Everyone's in love with you, yeah
Everyone's in love with you

God gives, God's wise
The way that she smiles
It should be no surprise
At work, at home
I'm introduced to so & so
But you're the one they want to know

I'm jealous & a little proud
I want to kill & kiss you too
You belong to everyone who meets you
Everyone's in love with you

God gives, God takes
Don't misunderstand I'm a satisfied man
So sweet, so strange
I guess I'll never understand the things she does to all my friends

I'm jealous & a little proud
I want to kill & kiss you too
You belong to everyone who meets you
Everyone's in love with you
Everyone's in love with you

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine,
I keep my eyes wide open all the time,
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds,
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

I find it very, very easy to be true,
I find myself alone when each day's through,
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you,
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

As sure as night is dark and day is light,
I keep you on my mind both day and night,
And happiness I've known proves that it's right,
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

You've got a way to keep me on your side,
You give me cause for love that I can't hide,
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide,
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine,
I keep my eyes wide open all the time,
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds,
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

I've learned to do some simple things
Like lock the door and shut the lights
And pay the paperboy on time
And try to miss you less each night

So please won't you tell your dreams
To leave my room alone
Please won't you tell your dreams

To leave my room alone

I took the dog out for a walk
I gave the laundry man a beer
I washed the dishes in the sink
And took your picture off the mirror

I saw a movie just last night
I sat and cried the all way through
I went to bed at ten o'clock
I closed my eyes and there was you

¡Atención! Radio Sevilla.
Queipo de Llano es quien habla.
Quien muge, quien gargajea.
Quien rebuzna a cuatro patas.
¡Radio Sevilla! Señores:
Aquí un salvador de España.
¡Viva el vino, viva el vómito!
Esta noche tomo Málaga;
el lunes, tomé Jerez;
martes, Montilla y Cazalla;
miércoles, Chinchón, y el jueves,
borracho y por la mañana,
todas las caballerizas
de Madrid, todas las cuadras,
mullendo los cagajones,
me darán su blanda cama.
¿Oh, que delicia dormir
teniendo por almohada
y al alcance del hocico
dos pesebres de alfalfa!
¡Qué honor ir al herradero
del ronzal! ¡Que insigne gracia
recibir en mis pezuñas,
clavadas con alcayatas,
las herraduras que Franco
ganó por arrojo en Africa!
ya se me atiranta el lomo,
ya se me empinan las ancas,
ya las orejas me crecen,
ya los dientes se me alargan,
la cincha me viene corta,
las riendas se me desmandan,
galopo, galopo…al paso
Estaré en Madrid mañana,
Que los colegios se cierren,
que las tabernas se abran.
Nada de Universidades,
de Institutos, nada, nada,
Que el vino corra al encuentro
De un libertador de España.
-¡Atención! Radio Sevilla.
El general de esta plaza,
Tonto berrendo en idiota,
Queipo de Llano, se calla
