ROOSTER

Pérez/González

 

Wake up everybody

Cause the sun doesn't rise

Without someone to hypnotize

With its rays that run down your back

Peering through these shadow cracks

Putting winds to shame

This here is my game!

Sing for you I will

To the street sweepers drill

Crow to the sound of the rusty greyhound (yeah)

 

Cause a song in a meadow

Is a song in a city

A song in a prairie

Is a song in an alley too

 

Wake up everybody (2x)

Kikiriki. Kikiriki!

 

Suns come out

With my song

 

HORMIGUITAS DIVINAS

Enomoto/González

 

Los charcos reflejan la luz del sol

Después de una tormenta dura

Y lluvias que ahogaron un jardín

Destruyendo los capullos

Frutas y verduras

 

Hormiguita divina

Alza la vista al sol

Arrugando la frente

Asesora el momento

Sin embargo amanece con las fuerzas en mano

Y aunque alguien vea su esfuerzo en vano

Como hormiga sigue el valor para

Su futuro hermano….

 

Hormiga en el universo de un jardín

Que combate aguas inmundas

Colibrí de flor en dulce flor

Ausente la desesperación

“A paso fijo sigue mi labor!”

 

Divinas

 

HOLLENBECK GANSO

López/González

 

No, no!

Mira que regresa el maldito

No, no!

Viene con las manos llenitas!!

No, no!

Corre, corre

No, no!

 

Entre palmas y acera, lago y autopista

La agresión de la criatura ay! ten piedad

Es la vida del gansito en lago de ciudad

El ganso nada ojo a la vista

No, no hay tranquilidad

Nada el ganso de ciudad

 

Generosos hay pocos

En este lago hay puros locos

Puros locos

Conmigo todos se quieren desquitar

Soy el ganso que les gusta aterrorizar

 

 

 

 

La agresión de la criatura, de la criatura...

Ten piedad, ten piedad, ten piedad,

Es la vida del gansito, del gansito,

De la cuidad

 

Del sur al norte volando

Plumas llenas de paisaje

No le pongas piedra al viaje

Ni barreras delirando

Gansito que vas pasando

Por el monte y la cuidad

Alas de la eternidad

En los puntos cardenales

Te besan los manantiales

Tus plumas de libertad

Corre gansito, de los niños

 

ARDILLA

Enomoto/González

 

Winter

Comes summer, comes spring

The need every moment brings

It's a feeling

A desire

That you must have

 

For my collection, health and happiness

Abundant in my hands I'm happy then

For my collection, health

For my collection, health and

Happiness!

 

I feel so happy!

Oh with my things

Content with my content

Things and things

This and that

Happy, Oh so Happy

I’ve gotta have it

 

Store, store, store...

I want and need more, more, more

Fill my burrow to the core

But it's…..

 

For my collection, health and happiness

Abundant in my hands I'm happy then

For my collection, health

For my collection, health and

 

Happiness!

Sun (sun) shines (shines) but it blocks, but it blocks the sunlight

It's a pot of gold, it's my life I hold

And I feel I'll die now

 

COYOTE HUSTLE

Flores/González

 

 

On rolling hills

Nestled in setting skies

Anticipating the sun’s retreat

I slowly, patiently, wait for the night

Invisible, until it’s time to manifest

To descend into your garden

And feast upon your pet

 

You will never know what it’s like to be me

You will never see me cry

I will howl at the wind

Take my song to the sky

 

Throes of progress echo in my den

The rumble in my belly knows no end

Angels at work, city is bustling

Cloak of darkness

Coyotes are hustling

 

 

 

 

You will never know what its like to be me

You will never see me cry

I will howl at the wind

Take my song to the sky

You will never know what it’s like to be me

You will never see me cry

If the still of the night

Won’t feed me,

I will do what I must to survive!

There is only so much more one can pave

There is only so much one can take

There is only so much more one can make, break, hate

 

PALOMO VAGABUNDO

Enomoto/González

 

Palomo cojo y moribundo

Manchado de aceite

Vuela entre las palmas de una cuidad

 

Buscando calor

Sueña de un amor

A la vista

El Palomo caminando se menea

Va el palomo a paso vagabundo

Se menea

Se siente elegante

Y va el palomo a paso vagabundo

Se menea

Le baila a la amante

Se acerca (Pero no lo ven)

Se inclina (Pero no lo ven)

Se esponja (Pero no lo ven)

 

Paloma, palomita vuela entre las nubes

Amor correspondido no siempre ocurre

Paloma, palomita en cuidad de amores

Amores, temblores

 

Coro

 

Pero no lo ven

Pero no lo ven

 

 

SPIDER'S LAMENT

Jacobson/González

 

"Disculpa mi indiscreción"

Dijo la araña con convicción

La araña rodeaba a su preso,

un peso y lamento

En el corazón

 

Tieso el preso

Los ojos lo seguían

Ese elegante animal

Que poco a poco...

Ese elegante animal

Que poco a poco se lo comía

 

Se lo comía

Tela- tela telaraña

Que la lluvia baja y baña

Entra el sol por una gota de agua

Arco iris que de desata

 

 

CITY BRIDGE COCOON

López/González

 

It bends to the wind

It shines by the light of the moon

 

A butterfly slowly appears

The freeway hums a familiar tune

Protected from the shadows

City Bridge Cocoon

 

A blade of grass sprouting through concrete

Nature’s slow but steady might

City bridge

Surrogate womb

Butterflies take flight

underneath the smog and city lights

City bridge

Surrogate womb

 

 

 

Puente que atraviesa la gente

 

Don’t look back

 

A blade of grass sprouting through concrete

Natures slow but steady might

City Bridge

Fly, fly, fly move into the sky

Don't look back little butterfly

Don't look back no more, no more

 

City bridge cocoon…….

 

TECOLOTE

Pérez/González

 

Tecolote, Predator

Tecolote, Night watcher

Messenger of fate, Tecolote

Messenger of fate, Tecolote

 

Feel majestic

Feel full moon night

Wings Gliding over the city

Element of surprise

 

His shadows lurks obstructing my moonlight

His shadows lurks obstructing my moonlight

His wisdom brings on the night

His wisdom brings on the night

 

Tecolote Celestial night

Tecolote Traveler, Life unraveler

Settles with a song and a look

Settles with a song and a look

With a song and a look...

With a song and a look

Don’t follow me

Give me more time

Cántale a la luna

En esta vida solo hay una

 

 

 

Perr@ Caliente

Jacobson/González

 

Look at the dog

It's coming near me

It's off it's leash

But it cant hear me

It's wagging tail turns in between it's thighs

 

The heat, vibes

Panting, begging eyes

Drooling, foaming at the mouth

Gyrating thighs

Gyrating thighs

 

Perro Caliente

Perra Amor ardiente

 

Pet me

Cars running past

Hit and run

Scars are fading fast

Please, please, give me want

I'll take what I can get

Hit and run

Look at my scars they're fading fast!
