That the world was
and always be filth,I already know…In the year five hundred and sixand in the year two thousand too!There always have been thieves,traitors and victims of fraud,happy and bitter people,valuables and imitationsBut, that the twentieth centuryis a display

of insolent malice,

nobody can deny it anymore.

We lived sunk in a fuzz

and in the same mud

all well-worn…

Today it happens it is the same

to be decent or a traitor!

To be an ignorant, a genius, a pickpocket,

a generous person or a swindler!

All is the same! Nothing is better!

They are the same, an idiot ass

and a great professor!

There are no failing grades or merit valuations,

the immoral have caught up with us.

If one lives in a pose

and another, in his ambition, steals,

it’s the same if it’s a priest,

a mattress maker, a king of clubs,

a cad or a tramp.

What a lack of respect,

what a way to run over reason!

Anybody is a gentleman!

Anybody is a thief!

Mixed with Stavisky, you have Don Bosco

and La Mignon

don Chicho and Napoleon,

Carnera and San Martin.

Like in the disrespectful window

of the bazaars,

life is mixed up,

and wounded by a sword without rivets

you can see a Bible crying

next to a water heater.

Twentieth century, bazaar

problematic and feverish!

If you don’t cry, you don’t get fed

and if you don’t steal, you’re a stupid.

Go ahead! Keep it up!

That there, in hell

we’re gonna reunite.

Don’t think anymore,

move out of the way.

Nobody seems to care

if you were born honest.

That is the same the one who works,

day and night like an ox,

than the one who lives from the others,

than the one that kills or heals

or the one who lives outside the law.

Que el mundo fue y
sera una porqueria,ya lo se…En el quinientos seisy en el dos mil también!Que siempre ha habido chorros,maquiavelos y estafaos,contentos y amargaos,valores y dublés…Pero que el siglo veintees un despliegue

de maldad insolente

ya no hay quien lo niegue.

Vivimos revolcaos en un merengue

y en un mismo lodo

todos manoseaos…

Hoy resulta que es lo mismo

ser derecho que traidor..!

Ignorante, sabio, chorro,

generoso o estafador!

Todo es igual! Nada es mejor!

Lo mismo un burro

que un gran profesor!

No hay aplazaos ni escalafon,

los inmorales nos han igualao.

Si uno vive en la impostura

y otro roba en su ambicion,

da lo mismo que sea cura,

colchonero, rey de bastos,

caradura o polizon…

Que falta de respeto,

que atropello a la razon!

Cualquiera es un señor!

Cualquiera es un ladron!

Mezclao con Stavisky va Don Bosco

y “La Mignon,”

Don Chicho y Napoleon,

Carnera y San Martin…

Igual que en la vidriera irrespetuosa

de los cambalaches

se ha mezclao la vida

y herida por un sable sin remache

ves llorar la Biblia

contra un calefon.

Siglo veinte, cambalache

problematico y febril!

El que no llora, no mama,

y el que no afana es un gil.

Dale nomas! Dale que va!

Que alla en el horno

nos vamo a encontrar!

No pienses mas,

sentate a un lao.

Que a nadie importa

si naciste honrao.

Que es lo mismo el que labura

noche y dia, como un buey

que el que vive de los otros,

que el que mata o el que cura

o esta fuera de la ley.
