Track Name: Senza I Brazzi E Fuori
The words translate: “Mother, summer is here and being that I want to be married I would like a sleeveless dress, a pair of shoes and a pretty hat, for that is the style. Without a sleeveless dress I cannot get married. My boy friend is waiting for me and we want to make love tonight in this beautiful city.”
Track Name: Canción Mixteca
The words say: “I am far away from the land of my birth. Intense nostalgia fills my consciousness. Oh land of the sun, now so distant, I live without light, without
love. I am alone and sad, like a leaf in the wind. I want to cry, I want to die from sadness.”
Track Name: El Soldado Razo
The words mean: “I’m going as a soldier without rank. I’m joining the file of young men who are leaving as their sweethearts cry at their departure. My only regret is leaving my mother alone. Virgin Morena, take care of her until I return. My Virgin of Guadalupe will protect my flag. When I find myself in battle far away, I will prove that my race knows how to die anywhere.”
