Spanish Music – Manu Chao – Mala Vida

“Mala vida” is a Manu Chao song that was originally recorded by his previous band Mano Negra, but is also featured on the 2002 live Manu Chao album “Radio Bemba Sound System”. Radio Bemba Sound System is the name given to Manu Chao’s backing band, named after the communication system used in the Sierra Maestra by the Castro-and-Guevara-led rebels in the Cuban Revolution. The version of Mala vida heard on Radio Bemba Sound System is more reggae-ska-rock orientated than the original.

The Spanish Lyrics:

Tú me estás dando mala vida
Yo pronto me voy a escapar
Gitana mía por lo menos date cuenta
Gitana mía por favor tú no me dejas ni respirar
Tú me estás dando mala vida

Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Dime tú porque te trato yo tan bien
Cuando tú me hablas como a un cabrón
Gitana mía mi corazón está sufriendo
Gitana mía por favor sufriendo malnutrición
Me estás dando m’estás dando mala vida

Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Dime tú porque te trato yo tan bien
Cuando tú me hablas como a un cabrón
Me estás dando m’estás dando Ché
Mi corazón

Soleil

Tú me estás dando mala vida
Yo pronto me voy a escapar
Gitana mía por lo menos date cuenta
Gitana mía por favor tú no me dejas ni respirar
Tu m’estás dando m’estás dando mala vida

Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Cada día se la traga mi corazón
Cada día se la traga mi corazón
