La Portuaria feat. David Byrne - Hoy No Le Temo a La Muerte (Today I Do Not Fear Death)



Today I am not afraid of death.
Hoy no le temo a la muerte.

I don't know what took it away from me.
No se que fue que me lo quitó.

I don't know if it was your kisses,
No se si fueron tus besos,

Or maybe it was a song
O tal ves fue una canción.

Everything I owed, I paid back.
I gave away all my possessions.
And you won’t catch me sleeping
When they tell me the train is coming.

I already paid my debts.
Yo ya pague mis deudas.

But I don't want to have more.
Mas no quiero tener.

And I want to be awake
Y quiero estar despierto

When they tell me the train is coming.
Cuando me digan que viene el tren.

Today I am not afraid of death.
Hoy no le temo a la muerte.

I don't know what took it away from me.
No se que fue que me lo quitó.

I don't know if it was your kisses
No se si fueron tus besos,

Or maybe it was a song.
O tal ves fue una canción.

I m not afraid, to cross the river.
I m not afraid, to pass on over.
I jump over, jump over the fire.
Today I’m not afraid of dying.

Ay mamasita today I crossed the bridge without fear,
Ay mamasita hoy yo crucé sin miedo del puente,

That passes over the river.
Que pasa por sobre el rió.

Oh mommy today I jumped the rope,
Ay mamita hoy yo salte la soga,

And I just jumped off the slide.
Y me tire solo del tobogán.

I’m not afraid of dying

Today I am not afraid of death.
Hoy no le temo a la muerte.

Today it soundenly happened.

I don't know what took ita away.
No se que fue que me lo quito.

It could have been your kisses.

It could have been your kisses,
No se si fueron tus besos,

Or maybe it was a song.
O tal vez fue una canción.

1. I've had a pretty good day today, but hearing this tune just took it up to a "ten". Thank you....

.....Sir or Madam Ponietz. You have made me very happy and I'm guessing a few other people too.
