been there, done that

Standard

Been There Done That
Nicanor Parra
I’ve even been a corpse for pay
One time they told me to hit the ground
And I, who am that I am, I obeyed
They covered me up with some newspapers
& went about their business filming a scene
For their motion picture

Another time
In a whorehouse in San Antonio
They forced me
To suck a little old woman’s tits
On pain of death

What more do you want me to say?

Original

He Trabajado De Todo
Hasta de cadáver
Una vez me dijeron tiéndateahí
Y yo que soy quien soy obedecí
Me taparon con unos diarios
& se pusieron a filmar una escena
Para una película

Otra vez
En un prostíbulo de San Antonio
Me obligaron
A chuparle las tetas a una vieja
Bajo amenaza de muerte

Qué quieren que les diga?
