Por fin has logrado mujer de la calle
que un hombre decente se pierda por vos
que hiera en su carne con odio asesino
y en un calabozo jamas conocio.Mientras trabajaba de noche en la imprenta
para que tuvieses el pan que te di
vos, hasta olvidando que tienes un hijo
mi nombre y el tuyo manchabas asi

Gata, con un arañazo
pagas mi amor inconciente
no mereces ni el balazo
que un hombre decente te acaba de dar.

Y hoy cuando el llanto te ahoga
no es que estes arrepentida
es al pensar que la herida
tu cuerpo de loca te pueda estropear

“Yo estaba tranquila sentada en mi mesa
hace unos instantes en este cafe
cuando de repente un hombre se acerca
afuera me llama y salgo tras de el”

“Sin mediar palabra sacando un revolver
un tiro en el brazo cobarde me dio
y este caballero vio huir al canalla
y en ayuda mia valiente acudio.”

Miente, yo soy quien la ha herido
mientes no quieras salvarme
solo el culpable yo he sido
y voy a entregarme señor oficial.

Lloras, no borra tu llanto
ni tu mentira indulgente
todo el dolor y el quebranto
que a hombre decente le has hecho pasar

Street walker, you have finally accomplished,
that a decent man loose it because of you
that he wounds his flesh with murderous hatred
ending up in a jail cell he’s never been beforeWhile I worked the nigh shift at the print shop
so I could put the bread on our table
you, even forgetting that you have a son
My name, and yours, you tarnished this way.

Cat, with a scratch
you pay my unconscious love
you’re not worth the bullet
that a decent man has just put on you

nd now when the tears choke you
It’s not that you’re sorry
It’s because you worry that the wound
will ruin your slutty body.

“I was quietly sitting at my table
moments ago in this cafe
when suddenly a man came in
asked me out and I went out after him.”

“Without saying a word, drawing a revolver
the coward shot me in the arm
and this gentleman saw the creep flee
and bravely came to my help.”

She’s lying, I’m the one who shot her
you lie, do not try to save me
I’m the only guilty one
and I’m turning myself in Mr. Officer.

You cry, your tears do not erase,
nor your indulgent lying,
all the pain and grief
that you made a decent man suffer
