Hilarious Mexican trio Los Tres Tristes Tigres have done it again.
Here’s their Donald Trump corrido –in Spanish and sans musical arrangements, because, really, he doesn’t deserve it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I’m still on vacation so I won’t bother translating this thing right now, though I might do so as soon as I’m off this Greek island….or not.
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)
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
