Un “taco” va con sombrero
Requintao de ala corta,
Un gesto de “qué me importa”
Sobrador y pendenciero.

Pantalón “a la francesa”
A cuadritos de fragacha,
Que iba pidiéndole cancha
Al barro del arrabal.

Qué tiempo aquel que no podremos ver más
Que si se fue, no volverá,
Qué tiempo aquel de nuestra vieja ciudad
El del matón del arrabal,
Que la biaba del progreso,
Igual que a cinco de queso
Me lo han dejado,
Y hoy se pierde lentamente,
Como el sol en el poniente
Triste y derrotao.

A "taco" goes with a hat
Short-brimmed Requintao,
A "what do I care" gesture
Sobrador and quarrelsome.

Pants "a la française".
A square of fragacha,
That went begging for a field
To the mud of the slum.

What a time we'll never see again
That if it left, it won't come back,
What a time in our old city
That of the bully of the slum,
Than the biaba of progress,
Just like a five of cheese
They have left it to me,
And today it is slowly lost,
Like the sun in the west
Sad and defeated.
