Bongo Bong album at
Manu Chao's, "Desaparecido"
The Lyrics:
Me dicen el desagradecido [They call me the ungrateful]
Pero esa no es la verdad [But that is not the truth]
Yo llevo en el cuerpo un dolor [I carry in my body a pain]
Que no me deja respirar [That doesn't allow me to breathe]
Llevo en el cuerpo una condena [I carry in my body a condemnation]
Que siempre me echa a caminar [That always makes me start to walk]
According to Manu Chao's eclectic style this song is unsurprisingly upbeat, except for the fact that it is about being a "disappeared" soul always on the move.
