Nomas al pisarle el gas
Rugia el motor arreglado
Impecable su pintura
De todo bien equipado
Nomas hablar le faltaba
Aquel hermoso camaro
A junior se lo compre
Que anduviera bien montado
Cuando se paseaba en el
Era la envidia del barrio
Nunca pense que ami hijo
La muerte le habia comprado

(Coro)

Solo tenia 15 anos
Se le notaba en la cara
Cuando lo vi en su camaro
Yo le miraba las alas
MI POLLO no tenia plumas
Y yo queria que volara

Un domingo en la manana
Todo parecia alegria
De pronto me comunican lo que jamas pensaria
En un accidente vial
Mi junior estaba sin vida
Talves yo tube la culpa
Por darle todo en la vida
No queria que le faltara
Lo que a su edad no tenia
Si DIOS lo mando sin alas
Yo pa' que se las ponia
Las cosas tienen su tiempo
Y yo lo lleve temprano
Por querer tanto alos hijos
Algunos padres fallamos
En lugar de darles todo
Por que no los preparamos

(Coro)

Solo tenia 15 anos
Se le notaba en la cara
Cuando lo vi en su camaro
Yo le miraba las alas
MI POLLO no tenia plumas
Y yo queria que volara

    This song goes hard for many Mexicans a tragic story of a father who loved his son and night him a beautiful Camaro only to have it be the cause of his son's death. I remember the first hearing this when my dad played it for me even though I don't particularly like Mexican corridos, this song I can't ever get tired of.

    K le daba todo sin pensar en lo k podia pasar y hasta k paso el accidente se dio cuenta k el dinero no es todo en la vida.
