Lyrics

Tengo la camisa negra
I have the black shirt
I have a black shirt

Hoy mi amor esta de luto
Today my love is ?
Today my love is in mourning.

Hoy tengo en el alma una pena
Today I have in the ? a ?
Today there is a pain in my soul

Y es por culpa de tu embrujo
And it is the fault of your ?
because of your spell.

Hoy sé que tú ya no me quieres
Today I know that you already don’t love me
Today I already know that you don’t love me

Y eso es lo que más me hiere
And that is the most ?
which is the the thing that hurts the most.

Que tengo la camisa negra
I have the black shirt
I have a black shirt

Y una pena que me duele
And a ? that I ?
and a pain that dwells within me.

Mal parece que solo me quedé
Bad ? that only I want
It’s a shame that I am alone

Y fue pura todita tu mentira
And was pure of all your lies 
purely because you lied

Que maldita mala suerte la mía
That ? bad luck Mia
and also because of my damned bad luck

Que aquel día te encontré
? ? day you ?
on the day that I first met you.

Por beber del veneno malevo de tu amor
To drink the ? ? of your love
From drinking the malevolent poison of your love

Yo quedé moribundo y lleno de dolor
I want ? and full of pain
I remain near death and full of sorrow

Respiré de ese humo amargo de tu adiós
Breath that smoke ? you left
still breathing the bitter smoke of your goodbye

Y desde que tú te fuiste yo solo tengo
And since that you were the only thing I have
and since you left, all I have is…

Tengo la camisa negra
I have the black shirt
I have a black shirt

Porque negra tengo el alma
Because I have the black ?
to match the darkness in my soul

Yo por ti perdí la calma
I ?
I have completely lost my cool over you

Y casi pierdo hasta mi cama
And almost lost my bed
Lost it right up to my bed.

Come on come on come on baby
Come on come on come on baby
Come on come on come on baby

Te digo
I say to you
I say to you

Que tengo la camisa negra
That I have the black shirt
that the black shirt

Y debajo tengo el difunto
And below I have the deceased
disguises the fact that underneath I’m a corpse.

Tengo la camisa negra
I have the black shirt
I have a black shirt

Ya tu amor no me interesa
Already your love doesnt interest me
and already your love doesn’t interest me

Lo que ayer me supo a gloria
Yesterday ?
Yesterday what I thought was pure happiness

Hoy me sabe a pura
Today I am pure
Today I realize is pure ****

Miércoles por la tarde y tú que no llegas
Wednesday afternoon and you didn’t arrive 
Wednesday afternoon you never showed up

Ni siquiera muestras señas
No ? ? signals
and never gave me the least sign

Y yo con la camisa negra
And I with the black shirt 
so here I am with the black shirt

Y tus maletas en la puerta
And your suitcases at the door
And your suitcases at the door.

Mal parece que solo me quedé
Bad ? that only I want
It’s a shame that I am alone

Y fue pura todita tu mentira
And was pure of all your lies 
purely because you lied

Que maldita mala suerte la mía
That ? bad luck Mia
and also because of my damned bad luck

Que aquel día te encontré
? ? day you ?
on the day that I first met you.

Por beber del veneno malevo de tu amor
To drink the ? ? of your love
From drinking the malevolent poison of your love

Yo quedé moribundo y lleno de dolor
I want ? and full of pain
I remain near death and full of sorrow

Respiré de ese humo amargo de tu adiós
Breath that smoke ? you left
still breathing the bitter smoke of your goodbye

Y desde que tú te fuiste yo solo tengo
And since that you were the only thing I have
and since you left, all I have is…

Tengo la camisa negra
I have the black shirt
I have a black shirt

Porque negra tengo el alma
Because I have the black ?
to match the darkness in my soul

Yo por ti perdí la calma
I ?
I have completely lost my cool over you

Y casi pierdo hasta mi cama
And almost lost my bed
Lost it right up to my bed.

disguises the fact that underneath I’m a corpse.

Come on come on come on baby
Come on come on come on baby
Come on come on come on baby

Que tengo la camisa negra
That I have the black shirt
that the black shirt

Y debajo tengo el difunto
And below I have the deceased
disguises the fact that underneath I’m a corpse.


Just thought I’d do my thoughts about this translation as there are too many words to list all the vocabulary… It’s quite a difficult song and I found some of the phrases pretty complicated and as such you will see a lot of strikethrough text. I feel in places I was getting the general gist of what was being said but missed a few key words to be able to construct the actual meaning. I also need to work on extracting meaning from translation i.e. although “Y debajo tengo el difunto” word by word means “And below I have the deceased”, it obviously doesn’t fit into the context of the song…

However, that said, it is a useful reminder that I still have a lot to learn with Spanish and even though it was hard and I didn’t get much correct I’m still posting it regardless to demonstrate failure is a natural learning experience and that we shouldn’t be afraid to fail! #FailureEnthusiast
