Cabin Fever

Comme un lion dans une cage
Je deviens fou
Je m’en fou
Je m’en fou
Je m’en fou
Je m’en fou
Je m’en fou

Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever

Se me cae la casa en sima
Me vuelva loca
No me importa
No me importa
No me importa
No me importa
No me importa

Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever

Feels like drowning in a fog
Makin’ me, makin’ me go crazy
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t give a damn

Café Reggambo

Dicen que en Café Reggambo no hay razas ni sed
Dicen que en Café Reggambo nadie le habla de usted
Barriles de cerveza en Reggambo de noventa a unos cien
Y el que se muera de pena todos bailan con él

No hay malos rollos aquí
Deja tus armas afuera
Que está tó pagado
Pon la propina en la cesta
No hay malos rollos aquí
Deja tus armas afuera
Cuidao con el suelo
Recién fregao con cerveza

They say that at Café Reggambo there are no races or thirst
They say that at Café Reggambo no one tells you “Sir”
They have at Café Reggambo beer for thousands no less
And those with pity and sorrow everyone dances with them

No hay malos rollos aquí
Deja tus armas afuera
Que está tó pagado
Pon la propina en la cesta
No hay malos rollos aquí
Deja tus armas afuera
Cuidao con el suelo
Recién fregao con cerveza

Carlito

He came from Spain and found the Bay (and found the Bay)
Carlito de Málaga con guitarra y small PA (small PA)
It was like destiny, or like astrology
Or maybe like a modern Johnny Appleseed
Just like Mapuches whose music guides the rain
Carlito’s singing opened up our way

Through all the days
Through all the hours
Musical colors bloom like flowers

Cerulean, mantis, razzmatazz, and zaffre
Electric blue, when you start a journey
And though you go, you are never really gone
The music connects you, the planet is your home
Singing reggae as one

Like Songoanda with the cloud on her feet
She uses the bad times as a rocket ship
Y Pachamama will help you along
You offer some chicha, you sing your song

Chillin’

I took the day off
The job can wait
No alarm this morning
I stayed up late
Enjoying some coffee
Watching birds in the yard
Taking it easy
‘Stead of taking it hard

I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
Just chillin’

Think I’ll stroll to the ocean
It’s sunny outside
Wearin’ my sandals
I won’t need a ride
I’ll pick up some snacks
Along the way
No need to hustle
Cuz it’s that kind of day

I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
Just chillin’

Watching the people
Gives me something to do
Some are stressed out
Others are cool
He looks busy
And so does she
They’re doin’ their things
But as for me …

I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
Just chillin’

I grab the metro
Just cuz it’s fun
Rolling along
Responsibilities: none
The City slides by
Taquerias and cops
Rainbow flags
And bicycle shops

I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
Just chillin’

It’s the end of the line
I’m at the strand
I pick a good spot
And settle down in the sand
Watchin’ surfers glide
Lots of dogs at play
Watchin’ pelicans dive
It’s my kind of day

I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
Just chillin’

I take a walk down the beach
Get a little bit wet
Is it time to go home?
No, I’m not ready yet
Walk a little bit more
The sand’s feeling good
I would do this more often
If only I could

I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
Just chillin’

The sun’s going down
Things are gettin’ red
Guess I’ll head back to my base
But I’m not going to bed
Gonna keep kickin’ back
For a few hours more
When this opportunity comes
I’m gonna take it for sure

I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
I’m chillin’
Just chillin’

Come Along Way

Pick it up
Put it back
Pick it up again
Find it
Lose it
Be my friend
Stand up
Fall down
Try it some more
Life is
Open
It’s yours to explore

You’ve come along way
You’ve come along way (baby)
You’ve come along way
You’ve come along way

Cry
Try
Do or die
Whirl
And spin
Let’s do it again
You give
Me your smile
And I’ll give you mine
Let’s stick
Together
And we’ll have a good time

You’ve come along way.
You’ve come along way (baby)
You’ve come along way.
You’ve come along way

Kamala II

He’s Kamala, behemoth
De la lucha libre
She’s Kamala, vice-POTUS
From Califor-ni-A
She’s Kamala, Siddhartha’s
Guide in finding his way
She’s Kamala, Ms. Marvel
Saving Jersey Cit-A

… Ka
… Ma
… La
Kamala

It’s Kamala, the lotus
Emerging from the muck
She’s Kamala, her pheromones
Causing Jean-Luc to blush
It’s Kamala, the river
Bringing life to Nepal
She’s Kamala, with elephants
Bringing grace to us all

… Ka
… Ma
… La
Kamala

Viene Kamala, de lejos
Trayendo la luz
Venciendo la guerra
Con tiranos y gurús
Contándole nanas
Al sueño del tiempo
Convirtiendo en diamantes
Los gritos y lamentos

… Ka
… Ma
… La
Kamala

Kamala fuerza primitiva
Cerrando al pesar la puerta de salida
Kamala fuerza primitiva
Cerrando al pesar la puerta de salida

Rabbit

The desert has many minds
The desert has so many sounds
The desert has many colors
The psychedelia abounds
In the air, in the ground, in the spirit
In the middle of it

Rabbit hears … what Rabbit hears
Rabbit sees … what Rabbit sees
Rabbit learns … what Rabbit learns
Rabbit knows … what Rabbit knows

Rabbit …
Rabbit …
Rabbit …
Rabbit …

The human can’t feel the minds
The human cannot hear the sounds
The human can’t see the colors
Until she swallows what she found
Then her mind, and her heart, and her spirit
Come together with it

And she hears … what Rabbit hears
And she sees … what Rabbit sees
And she learns … what Rabbit learns
And she knows … what Rabbit knows

Rabbit …
Rabbit …
Rabbit …
Rabbit …

L’humain ne sent pas les esprits
L’humain n’entend pas les sons
L’humain ne voit pas les couleurs
Elle avale ce qu’elle a trouvé 
Puis son esprit et son cœur et son esprit
Venez avec l’apin

Et elle entend … what Rabbit hears
Et elle voit … what Rabbit sees
Et elle apprend … what Rabbit learns
Et elle sait … what Rabbit knows

Rabbit …
Rabbit …
Rabbit …
Rabbit …

Tipsy

Take a sip
Savor it
You might flip
Just a bit
Not too much
Just enough
To feel a little tipsy

Rain or shine
Beer or wine
In your den
Out with friends
There might be
Opportunity
To get a little tipsy

Twelve thousand years of hist’ry
We humans have affinity
For drinks that make us tipsy
Doo-be-doo-be-doo-be (etc.)
Hooch, home brew, cider in those
Shots, pints, mugs, flasks and piccolos
Should I pick this? That? Who knows?
I am a bit tipsy

Socialize
Harmonize
Rhapsodize
Just don’t drive
Every day
People find a way
To get a little tipsy

Venga Conmigo

Venga conmigo
Venga a bailar
Bailamos pegadito
Vamos a cosar 

Come and dance with me baby
Let the groove move your feet
Feel the heat of desire
In this fabulous beat

When you hear the music’s rhythm
You’ve just got to get down
Let the music move you
We can dance until dawn

Venga conmigo
Venga a bailar
Bailamos amorcito
Vamos a cosar

Venga conmigo
Venga a bailar
Bailamos pegadito
Vamos a cosar

Come and dance with me baby
Feel the groove through your feet
Oh the heat of desire
From this fabulous beat

When you hear the music’s rhythm
You will let your guard down
How the music moves you
We will take on the town

Venga conmigo
Venga a bailar
Bailamos amorcito
Vamos a cosar

When The Time Comes

When the time comes
There will be no fighting
When the time comes
There will be no war
When the time comes
There will be no hatred
When the time comes
There will be love

But for now we’re
Swingin’ and we’re singin’ and we’re
Bringin’ everything until we
Figure how to
Groove it, improve it
Collaborate with you to move it
But for now we’re
Swingin’ and we’re singin’ and we’re
Bringin’ everything until we
Figure how to
Groove it and move it along

When the time comes
There will be no hunger
When the time comes
There will be no greed
When the time comes
There will be no plunder
When the time comes
There will be peace

But for now we’re
Swingin’ and we’re singin’ and we’re
Bringin’ everything until we
Figure how to
Groove it, improve it
Collaborate with you to move it
But for now we’re
Swingin’ and we’re singin’ and we’re
Bringin’ everything until we
Figure how to
Groove it and move it along
