VÍSTETE SEXY EN MI FUNERAL By SMOG March 27, 2011

This week we do things in reverse – I have translated an English song into Spanish.
Smog is basically the American singer-songwriter Bill Callahan
(he prefers to use his real name these days).
This song originally appeared on "Dongs of Sevotion" (2000).
Apologies to Mr. Callahan for the liberties I've taken with his work!

DRESS SEXY AT MY FUNERAL

CHORUS:
Dress sexy at my funeral my good wife
Dress sexy at my funeral my good wife
For the first time in your life

Wear your blouse undone to here
And your skirt split up to there

Wink at the minister
Blow kisses to my grieving brothers

And when it comes your turn
to speak before the crowd
Tell them about the time we did it
On the beach with fireworks above us
On the railroad tracks
with the gravel in your back
In the back room
of a crowded bar
And in the graveyard
where my body now rests 

Also tell them about
how I gave to charity
And tried to love my fellow man
as best I could
But most of all don't forget about
the railroad tracks
with the gravel in your back
VÍSTETE SEXY EN MI FUNERAL

ESTRIBILLO:
Vístete sexy en mi funeral, mujercita
Vístete sexy en mi funeral, mujercita
Por primera vez en tu vida

Lleva tu blusa desabrochada
Enseña tus piernas con tu minifalda

Guiña al sacerdote
Lanza besos a mi hermano apenado

Y cuando es tu turno
Para hablar ante la multitud
Díles de aquel momento cuando
Hicimos el amor en la playa
En las vías del tren
Con la grava en tu espalda
En la trastienda
De un bar lleno de gente
Y en el cementerio
Donde mi cuerpo descansa ahora

También díles como
Aportaba a la caridad
E intentaba a amar a mis semejantes
Lo mejor que podía
Sobretodo, no te olvides
De las vías del tren
Con la grava en tu espalda
