LYRICS TRANSLATION
La calle es una selva de cemento
The street is a concrete jungle
Y de fieras salvajes, cómo no
And of wild beasts, of how not
Ya no hay quien salga loco de contento
There's no one to go out crazy happy anymore
Donde quiera te espera lo peor
Wherever you want the worst awaits you
Donde quiera te espera lo peor
Wherever you want the worst awaits you
Verse 1
Juanito Alimaña con mucha maña llega al mostrador
Juanito Alimaña very reluctantly arrives at the counter
Saca su cuchillo, sin preocupación
He pulls out his knife, no worries
Dice que le entreguen la registradora
He says to give him the register
Saca los billetes, saca un pistolón
Take out the bills, pull out a gun
Sale como el viento en su disparada
It comes out like the wind in its firing
Y aunque ya lo vieron, nadie ha visto nada
And even though you've seen it, no one has seen anything
Juanito Alimaña va a la fechoría
Juanito Alimaña goes to the misdeed
Se toma su caña, fabrica su orgía
He takes his cane, makes his
La gente le teme porque es de cuidado
People are afraid of him because he's careful
Para meterle mano hay que ser un bravo
To get your hands on it, you have to be a brave man
Si lo meten preso sale al otro día
If he gets put in jail, he comes out the next day

Porque un primo suyo Está en la policía
Because a cousin of yours is in the police
Juanito Alimaña sí tiene maña, es malicia viva
Juanito Alimaña does have a morning, it's lively malice
Y siempre se alinea con el que está arriba
And it always aligns with the one above
Y aunque a medio mundo le robó su plata
And though half the world stole his money
Todos lo comentan, nadie lo delata
Everybody says it, nobody rats it out
Y aunque a todo el mundo le robó la plata
And even though everyone stole the money
Todos lo comentan, nadie lo delata
Everybody says it, nobody rats it out
Bridge
A-la-la-ley, le-le-le-ley
A-the-law, le-le-le-law
Chorus 1
En su mundo mujeres, fumada, y caña
In their world women, smoked, and cane
Atracando vive Juanito Alimaña
Docking lives Juanito Alimaña
Cuando él era muchachito, las cositas te pedía
When he was a little boy, the little things asked you
Y si tú no se las daba, las mangaba, como quiera las cogía
And if you didn't give them to him, I'd manga them, whatever he wanted, he'd take them
En su mundo mujeres, fumada, y caña
In their world women, smoked, and cane
Atracando vive Juanito Alimaña
Docking lives Juanito Alimaña
Ese, ese tumba lo que ve, si lo ve mal puesto
That, that grave you see, if you see it misunderstood
Anda cuida tu cartera, ese sí que sabe de eso
Go take care of your wallet, that one sure knows about it
