(Ahi te va, esquina caliente, se fuerza la máquina..)

Me llaman calle, pisando baldosas, la revoltosa y tan perdida.
Me llaman calle, calle de noche, calle de día.
Me llaman calle, hoy tan cansada, hoy tan vacía,
como maquinita por la gran ciudad.

Me llaman calle, me subo a tu coche, me llaman calle de malegría.
Calle dolida, calle cansada de tanto amar.

Voy calle abajo, voy calle arriba, no me rebajo ni por la vida.
Me llaman calle y ese es mi orgullo, yo sé que un día llegará,
yo sé que un día vendrá mi suerte, un día me vendrá a buscar
a la salida un hombre bueno pa' to la vida y sin pagar
mi corazón no es de alquila.

Me llaman calle, me llaman calle
calle sufrida, calle tristeza de tanto amar.
Me llaman calle, calle más calle.

Me llaman calle vas sin futuro, me llaman calle va sin salida
Me llaman calle, calle más calle, la que mujeres de la vida
suben pa' abajo bajan pa' arriba como maquinita por la gran ciudad.

Me llaman calle, me llaman calle
calle sufrida, calle tristeza de tanto amar.
Me llaman calle, calle más calle.

Me llaman siempre y a cualquier hora,
me llaman guapa siempre a deshora,
me llaman puta también princesa
me llaman calle sin nobleza.
Me llaman calle, calle sufrida,
calle perdida de tanto amar.

Me llaman calle, me llaman calle
calle sufrida, calle tristeza de tanto amar.

A la Puri, a la Carmen, Carolina, Bibiana, Pereira, Marta, Marga,

Me llaman calle, me llaman calle
calle sufrida, calle tristeza de tanto amar.

Me llaman calle, me llaman calle
calle sufrida, calle tristeza de tanto amar.

Me llaman calle, me llaman calle
calle sufrida, calle tristeza de tanto amar.

Me llaman calle, me llaman calle
calle sufrida, calle tristeza de tanto amar.

Awful
Just a little too repetitive for me I guess.  Maybe it's better live?

Ohhh, I like that word "polemic".....it's almost as much fun to think about as "pedantic"....

Yeah, yeah, I like the song too and yes, believe it or not I can speak Spanish albeit not as well as when I lived on the Rio Grande, but I like the way history catches up to me some times like this on-going discussion about ugly americans............

The Houston Chronicle this morning (2/1/2009)had a large article about Mexico recognizing the value of international linkages between modern countries...to wit....

<<
"CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico — With its economy increasingly hitched to the United States, Mexico’s government has launched an ambitious plan to teach English to every schoolchild, even those in kindergarten.

Currently, educators in 21 states and the Federal District are offering the language in a smattering of elementary schools and experimenting with teaching methods. Beginning next fall, 5,000 schools will begin a pilot project with federal textbooks and funds. And within just six years, federal officials hope to have all 12 million public elementary school students learning English.

“The ability to speak English in the 21st century is a must if we want to insert ourselves in the global economy, improve our standard of living or simply live as happier human beings,” said Fernando Gonzalez, the federal official in charge of public education through ninth grade...........>>

Like I said to begin with....quit feeling guilty about being an American and speaking English.

Yeah, that comes through in the rest of the lyrics.  Wasn't familiar with that slang (and I have been in out and out of a few Latin American places of ill repute).

Mexican?  Texan?

I guess 'puta de calle' simply got shortened to 'calle'.

It's painfully (and to be honest regrettably) apparent that those who speak Tagalog or Tibetan want to come here (American) for opportunity instead of staying behind. That must mean that for all the criticism leveled at it, Americans and English speakers form other countries consider English the language of opportunity, not the other way around and that the rest of the world sees what the "cultural preserver movement" or the "Atzlan feathered serpent movement" do not………English is the language of opportunity and if the rest of the languages and cultures are intended to survive then they will on their own and will do so without the attempt to make others carry your "guilt" over everyone not being multi-lingual like that in an of itself is some "magic potion". OK……..back the music. Sorry for the diatribe but every once in a while some folks on RP put a little too much "non-music" stuff out there that I get pretty tired of hearing on the job everyday. I don't really like it on my music space and after a while I just get an earful and fire one back. Get a life and improve your opportunity by improving your English communication skills.

Yeah, that is the best comment for Manu-Chao-ciao-bye-bye's "music". Although Ginobili hurt us in the Olympics (i am greek), i think he is by far more prolific than Chao.
Hate him, because he's just a populist aiming at the upper class.

If you object to this stereotype, then stop living up to it.

At least mfort312 is doing his part to serve as a counter-example to the stereotype.

An exceedingly long winded discourse on language and culture, and an ironic admonishment to stick to the music, from someone purveying the following quote: "Canadian guys are SOB's and tend to like their whiskey and sled dogs better than their women."("Wheels" by Cake)

Now, to use some of the highly questionable syntax from above: As a Canadian guy, they mustn't have covered sweeping generalizations in that psych/sociology double major.

LOL - someone's an American. Hasta luego, An Amero-Canadian - Dieu sauvent la reine.

The Native Americans had to learn European languages when your forefathers muscled in, in THEIR own country. Of course you shouldn't have to do anything, but your tiny little mind might just expand, helping you to understand what so many non-English-speaking people living in your country are saying to each other about idiots like you! Wake up! Half those people who consider themselves "Americans" are descended from elsewhere, most European-descendants are of German descent, so... They learned another language...

Spanish has been on Mainland America for MAYBE 50 years longer than English, and then sparingly. Wouldn't say that is 'alot' longer in the scheme of things. Global Education ranking - 18. Number of Nobel Laureates - nobody else is even close. For what it's worth, I'm embarrassed you're an American, too.

Manu Ginobli is much better at what he does than Manu Chao.

Some people have a hard time with freedom. You can say anything you want. So can anyone else. And they can speak in whatever language they wish. Freedom to speak any language is part of "freedom of speech". You don't have to learn Spanish, BUT you have no right to force Bill not play the song, Mano Chau not to sing it, or me and anyone else so inclined not listen to it. You don't want to hear Spanish (or anything else spoken) don't listen to people speaking or singing anything other than English. This isn't the English only station. Its a music station.
I know everybody else loves this album, but to be perfectly honest, I just don't see it. Maybe my opinion will change after a few more listens, though.

Spanish has been around a lot longer than English in this country... who do you think funded Christopher Columbus? That's fine if you choose to know only one way of experiencing your little corner of the world, but chances are, someone, somewhere in your lineage had to learn a foreign language to land your ass here... unless, of course, you happen to be 100% Apache... Three languages = Trilingual Two languages = Bilingual One language = American (Ranked #18 or so in Global Education and, obviously, still falling) Once upon a time, I used to be proud to be American. Now I'm just embarrassed.

Go back to your local AM/FM radio station. You're on the World Wide Web where you will hear anything and everything. If you can't handle it get off.
Watch out there or we'll call immigration, slick.

Me gusta Manu Chao.
:curtain: :daisy: It's ok :)
Maybe less tonic than other Manu's production. Still nice to listen to. :bananajam:
Nice Tune Bill! Once again giving us something new to hear that wouldn't be on FM. Love it!
