Close your eyes, and doo doo doo

If music were currency, and we paid for everything by sharing it, both our burdens and our feet would be wonderfully light. Here’s more great Chilean music from Papa Negro, a funk musician who writes fantastic Spanglish lyrics for those of you who can enjoy both.

Si la música fuera moneda, y la compartamos para pagar por todo, nuestros cargas y pies dos serían maravillosamente ligeros. Acá tenemos más gran música chilena de Papa Negro, un músico de funk, escritor de letras en espanglish fantástica para quienes puedan disfrutar las dos.

Papa Negro

“Wokman” (the Spanish-speaker’s way of writing “Walkman”)

Mis ojos cegados por la luz
Mi sonrisa se prepara para un día
Lleno de vida y calor
Existe un ambiente a familia
A mi alrededor

Tengo sueño
Y una brisa que recorre mi espalda
De a poco se apaga
Voy abrigado
Y una cinta that I choose a mi lado
Tomando en cuenta all the distance I travel

Press play
The silent tape noise alarga the wait
my smile twiches as my feet get the pace
and pow! the opening sound just hit me right there
leaving my mind from here to nowhere
And then ain’t nothing I could do
just smile, close my eyes and doo doo doo…
