lyrics

Coro:
Oui je sais que les chiens aboient
Que les hyènes me suivent partout pas à pas
Les vautours dans le ciel tournent autour de moi
Mais je ne m’en fais pas car tu es là près de moi

Même si la pluie qui tombe me remplit de tristesse
Même si le vent qui balaye du monde toute la sagesse
Même si les hommes sont fous et ne tiennent pas leurs promesses
Je sais que tu oublies tout sous l’effet de mes caresses

La tormenta nos deja a la deriva
Ola tras ola que nos viene encima
Aunque la marea nos intente alejar
Ni la lluvia ni el viento nos van a separar

Estribillo:
Pour toi señorita je ferai n’importe quoi
Tu sais mamacita que tu peux compter sur moi
Dis moi encore une fois que je suis ton roi
Je livrerai mille batailles je mourrai pour toi

Coro

Même si les vipères sont cachées sur le sentier
J’évite les pierres du chemin j’évite tous les dangers
Je sais que tôt ou tard les derniers seront les premiers
Et que les coups reçus un jour seront vengés
Aunque las fronteras bloqueen el camino
Yo sigo este rumbo, esquivando al enemigo
De los cien desiertos tuviera que atravesar
Ni alacranes ni serpientes nos van a separar

Estribillo
Un espíritu guerrero me viene ayudando
Vengo mas armado que un marine americano
El eco de mis pasos me viene acompañando
Mi canto me protege en el monte y en el llano
Muchos nos quieren dividir
Nos quieren separar man, nos quieren ver pelear
No saben que nuestra vibra es algo muy especial
Que ladren los perros el río va rumbo al mar
______

Translation

Chorus:

Yes I know that dogs are barking
Hyenas follow my every step
Vultures in the sky circle me
But I’m not worried because you’re here beside me

Even if rain falls and fills me with sadness
Even if the wind sweeps away the wisdom of the world
Even if men are fools and do not keep their promises
I know that you forget everything under the effect of my caresses
The storm leaves us adrift
Wave after wave washes over us
Although we try to escape the tide
Neither rain nor wind will separate us

Refrain:

Girl, for you I’ll do anything
My love, you know you can count on me
Tell me again that I am your king
I will fight a thousand battles, I will die for you

Chorus

Even if snakes are hidden on the trail
I avoid stones in the road, I avoid all the dangers
I know that sooner or later the last shall be first
And that blows received one day be avenged
Even though borders block the road
I follow this path, avoiding the enemy
Of the hundred deserts I’ve had to cross
Neither scorpions nor snakes will separate us

Refrain

A fighting spirit has been helping me
I come better armed than a U.S. Marine
The echo of my steps has accompanied me
My song protects me on the mountain and the plain
Many people want to break us apart
They want to separate us, man, they want to see us fight
They don’t know that our vibe is something very special
Dogs bark at the river that is rolling to the sea

Chorus
