about

A funky Latin song with a Spanish Harlem groove and conscious rap lyrics about the strange devil’s dance done by politicians and world leaders. One step forward, two steps back, the dance of the devil rules the world. Features Rocca from the Colombian rap group Tres Coronas as a guest.

Canción funky latina, con un groove del Spanish Harlem de Nueva York, y un flow rap con letras de conciencia sobre el extraño baile de diablo que hacen los políticos y los líderes del mundo. 1 paso adelante 2 pasos para atrás, el baile del diablo maneja el mundo. Con la presencia de Rocca de Tres Coronas como artista invitado.

C’est le titre funky-latin, mâtiné d’un groove du Spanish Harlem de New York, épicé d’un rap engagé sur l’étrange danse du diable que pratiquent les hommes politiques et les leaders du monde, 1 pas en avant, 2 pas en arrière; la danse du diable dirige le monde. Avec la présence de Rocca de “Tres Coronas” comme artiste invité.

lyrics

Coro
Huele a azufre, huele a gas
Hey man no mires, no mires atrás
El baile del diablo, para que tu lo entiendas
Un paso para adelante, dos pasos para atrás

Mami, todos los días se pone peor
Hasta se marchita la mas linda flor
Quién es el responsable, nadie habla todos saben
Quién es el responsable, cuando hablan nada dicen
Quién regó la planta de la ignorancia
Quién alimenta la perra pobreza
Quién baile con el diablo esta seguidilla
Quién abrió la puerta pa’ que se siente en la silla
Ese baile yo, no lo bailo ya,
váyanse demonios yo no bailo mas!
Ese baile yo, no lo bailo ya,
váyanse demonios yo no bailo mas!

Me marea, me mareo
Con la misma melodía
Y al compás todos bailamos con la misma tonadilla
Como se ríe el diablo cuando no ve sacando pecho
Como gallos llenos de orgullo
El sabe bien que solos nos encadenamos
Que como locos en la niebla nos equivocamos
Y seguimos pisándonos, como ciegos
Nuestro infierno esta en la tierra, no en los cielos

Ese es el baile del que no se nombra nunca
Dos ojos adelante y otro detrás de la nuca
Papa mejor no se meta acá
Fuera de la pista como culebra
Su lengua se desliza
Y se promete, seduce, te engaña con un dulce
Mira como lo luce
Rojo de rabia lo puse
Y yo con mi tumbao bien cadencioso
Calidoso, llevo mi protección acá en mi bolso
Se montaron los bayos en calibrados
Suelta la campana bongo
Que el sabor lo pongo yo

Translation:

Chorus:
It smells like sulfur, it smells like gas
Hey man, don’t look, don’t look behind you
The dance of the devil, so you understand
One step forward, two steps back

Man, every day it gets worse
Even the prettiest flower wilts
Who is responsible, no one speaks but everyone knows
Who is responsible, when they speak
they don’t say anything
Who watered the plant of ignorance
Who feeds the dog of poverty
Who dances with the devil these little steps
Who opened the door so he could sit in the chair
This dance, I won’t dance it anymore, get out of here devils I’m not dancing anymore!
This dance, I won’t dance it anymore, get out of here devils I’m not dancing anymore!

Chorus:

It makes me sick, it makes me dizzy
The same old melody
And the rhythm that we dance to the same tune
How the devil laughs when he sees us puffing out our chests
Like roosters full of pride
He knows that we’re only keeping ourselves in chains
Like lunatics in the fog we lose our way
And we keep stepping on each others feet like blind people
Our hell is to be on Earth, not in heaven

This is the dance of he who shall not be named
Two eyes in front and another behind his head
Dude, you’d better not go there
Off the track like a snake
His tongue slithers
And he promises, seduces, deceives you with sweetness
See how it looks
Red with rage
And me with my hot rhythm
So fine, I carry my protection in my bag
They mount the furious horses
Sound the cowbell my friend
‘Cause I put in the flavor

Chorus
