This is the Best Technology-Themed Corrido You’ll Ever Hear

The song is a modern tale of betrayal and sadness in the age of WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter. I feel so bad for the monolingual crowd (i.e. most gringos) who will miss on the awesome lyrics of this jewel, that I’m hereby translating some of its best parts:

I wrote you a WhatsApp but you didn’t reply

And on Facebook you have another relationship

Since I didn’t want to send you an Inbox

Better to just upload this song to YouTube

I closed my account to live happily with you

And I got rid of the girls you hated

Because of you, I lost all my friendsand nobody liked my ‘status’ any more […]

Sometimes I cry very close to my keys (keyboard)

[Unstranslatable]

I would love for you to follow me on Twitter

Even if I don’t really understand how that thing works

I have an unlimited, new iPhone,

I have a brand new account, different from all the others

I have a profile pic posing off with a new ‘vieja’

and now you won’t be able to stalk me ever again
