PELIGRO by MANO NEGRA November 1, 2016

Manu Chao has featured previously on this blog with his great song about the footballer Maradona. Before he went solo he fronted the band Mano Negra, and this song is from their second album “Puta’s Fever” (1989). There was a real anarchic spirit to this band, and the documentary ¡Pura Vida! (in a mixture of French and Spanish) is well worth watching.

PELIGRO

Cuidado en el barrio
Cuidado en la acera
Cuidado donde sea
Que te andan buscando
Los de la Seguridad
 
Cuidado en el campo
Cuidado en la frontera
Cuidado donde sea
Que van complotando
Los de la CIA
 
Peligroso esta el barrio
De Guatemala
Peligroso esta el barrio
De Nicaragua
 
Peligro
DANGER

Watch out in the neighbourhood
Watch out on the pavement
Watch out wherever you are
Because they are looking for you
Those in the security forces
 
Watch out in the countryside
Watch out on the border
Watch out wherever you are
Because they are plotting
Those in the CIA
 
The neighbourhood is dangerous
In Guatemala
The neighbourhood is dangerous
In Nicaragua
 
Danger
