Antonio Aguilar "El ojo de vidrio" Liedtext

Übersetzung nach: EN

        (Ahí les va la historia

      del viejo prieto bigotón

      que se llamaba Porfirio,

      apodado el Ojo de Vidrio)

Voy a cantar el corrido
del salteador de caminos
que se llamaba Porfirio
llamábanle “Ojo de Vidrio”,
lo tuerto no le importaba
pues no fallaba en el tiro.

        (Acertaba el pelao, y no jerraba)

Se disfrazaba de arriero
para asaltar los poblados.
Burlándose del gobierno,
mataba muchos soldados
nomás franqueaba en los cerros
de puros encalzonados.

Ahí viene el Ojo de Vidrio,
gritaba el pueblo asustado
y a las mujeres buscaba
mirando pa' todos lados,
dejaba pueblos enteros
lleno de puros colgados.

        (Dejaba una ensarta de viejos

      que parecía aquello un colgadero

      de purititos guachales, uaa

      ahí se asoleaban pa' la cuaresma)

Después de tantas hazañas
al verlo que se paseaba,
en su caballo tordillo
frente de la plaza de armas
lo acribillaron a tiros
sin que le pasara nada.

Decían que estaba forrado
con un chaleco de mallas,
las balas le rebotaban
mientras él se carcajeaba,
se iba tranquilo a caballo
sin que nadie le estorbara.

Bajaron tres campesinos
de allá del cerro escondido,
traíban al Ojo de Vidrio,
picado de un coralillo,
venía ya muerto el bandido
en su caballo tordillo.

(Here goes the story
of an old dark (dark skin colour) big bearded guy
named Porfirio,
nicknamed the Eye of Glass)

I am going to sing you a corrido (narrative song)
of the robber of roads (paths)
whose name was Porfirio
They called him "Eye of Glass"
He did not care being one-eyed
because he never failed a shot

(He shot, that low class guy(?)* and he never failed)

He disguised himself as a muleteer
so he could rob the towns.
Mocking the government,
He would kill many soldiers
He would leave the mountains (hills)
full of people in only their underwear**

Here comes the Eye of Glass!!
shouted the scared town
And he searched for the women
looking everywhere
He left entire towns
full of hanging (hanged) people.

(He left a string of old guys
that looked like hangers
full of guachales***,
there they would sunbathed until Lent)

After so many exploits
seeing as he traveled
in his dappled horse
in front the Square of Arms
they riddle him with shots
without nothing happening to him

They say that he was lined
with a netted vest (bullet proof vest)
The bullets bounced off
while he laughed
He left peacefully on horseback
without anybody disturbing him

Three peasants came down
from over the hidden mountain(hill)
They brought the Eye of Glass
stung by a rattlesnake
He already came dead
with his dappled horse.
