HOW TO BE A YÉ-YÉ GIRL: #5 Dance Provocatively next to a Swimming Pool (Optional)

This week I’ve decided to try and combine the two series I have been running i.e. yé-yé girls and Mexico.

The closest I’ve been able to find to a Mexican yé-yé girl is Emily Cranz, a singer, dancer and actress. Her dancing above is somewhat more provocative than that of her comparitively demure French counterparts (Brigitte Bardot excepted). The clip comes from the movie ‘Caballos en Acero’ (1967).

BORRACHITA 

Borrachita me voy 
para olvidarte,
te quiero mucho, 
también me quieres.

Borrachita me voy 
hasta la capital,
p'a servirle al patrón
que me mandó llamar anteayer.

Yo le dije que sí, 
ella que no
que habría de llorar, 
p'a qué volver.

Borrachita me voy 
hasta la capital,
p'a servirle al patrón
que me mandó llamar anteayer.

Yo le dije que sí, 
ella que no
que habría de llorar, 
p'a qué volver.
A LITTLE BIT DRUNK

I'm leaving a little bit drunk 
In order to forget you
I really love you, 
You love me too

I'm leaving a little bit drunk 
For the capital
To work for the boss
Who called for me the day before yesterday

I told him yes
She told him no
That there would have to be tears
Before a return

I'm leaving a little bit drunk 
For the capital
To work for the boss
Who called for me the day before yesterday

I told him yes
She told him no
That there would have to be tears
Before a return
