THREE DEADLY MEXICAN SONGS
Part Three: Tongue and Cheek
LISTEN: ‘Mátalas’ (Kill Them) by Mexican songwriter Manuel Eduardo Toscano, performed by Alejandro Fernández.
My friend, what’s the matter, you are crying
Surely because of lady troubles
There isn’t a mortal blow for men worse than
Crying and being despised by them
My friend, I will give you good advice
If you wish to enjoy pleasures with them
Get a gun if you like,
Or a dagger if you prefer,
And become a lady killer
With an overdose of tenderness
Smother them with kisses and sweets
Overwhelm them with your craziness
With flowers, with songs; don’t fail them
For there is no woman in this world
That can resist a sweet gesture
Wake them up with a serenade
Bring them flowers on an ordinary day
It doesn’t matter if she’s ungrateful
After all, you are not a saint, yourself!
