MARTA Y LOS ESCAPARATES by COPILOTO

This is the poppiest track from “Un Segundo Luminso” (2009), which was voted one of the best albums of the year in Aragon (the area of Spain around Zaragoza).

MARTA Y LOS ESCAPARATES
*
Marta habla inglés,
Habla francés, habla italiano
y en el jardin de papá
Podrá descansar
todo el verano
Marta habla inglés,
Habla francés, habla italiano
fin de semana de Abril para descansar
Y montar a caballo
 *
O irse a Londres
A envolver para regalo
montando escaparates Marta,
hay que empezar desde abajo
hay que empezar desde abajo
*
Marta habla inglés,
habla francés, habla italiano
Ha encontrado el amor,
tiene perfil y es educado
Marta se ha hecho mayor
en el sector, en el mercado
fin de semana de Abril
para disfrutar montando a caballo
*
De los jesuítas a Shangai
tu padre es un señor
Pasa del papel couché,
piensa en el papel salmón
MARTA AND THE WINDOW DISPLAYS
*
Marta speaks English,
Speaks French, speaks Italian
In her dad’s garden
She’ll be able to relax
for the whole summer
Marta speaks English,
Speaks French, speaks Italian
A weekend in April to relax
And go horse-riding
*
Or she leaves for London
To wrap presents
Dressing windows, Marta,
You have to start from the bottom
You have to start from the bottom
*
Marta speaks English,
Speaks French, speaks Italian
She’s found love,
She’s got a profile and she’s educated
Marta has grown up
In the sector, in the market
A weekend in April
To enjoy herself horse-riding
*
To the Jesuits of Shanghai
Your father is a gentleman
He passes through high society,
Think about the gossip magazines

GUITAR CHORDS:

Chorus: C – G – F – G

Verse: Am – Em – F – G F – G

GRAMMAR:

Tener Que (Have To) is one of the most useful expressions in Spanish.

Hay Que has a very similar meaning, but is used in a more general context (You/Everyone has to….)

“Hay que empezar desde abajo…” (not just Marta, the rest of us too!)
