De tal palo, tal astilla
De tal suerte, Barranquilla
Ta' llorando, ta' que arde
Ta' diciendo puta madre.
Tata mio que no me deja respirar
Igual aprendo solo
Cahto mato si pa' comer y pa' zafar
Paco, fino y rolo.
No te sientas maravilla
De tal palo tal astilla
Pasa macho, hijo e' tigre
Mala pata pero libre.
Cual es mi bandera la linda o la fea
Cual es amigo, cual es contigo
Cual es hermano, sos un fulano.
No me grites, no me jodas
No me gustan ya tus bromas
Ta' de fiesta, ta' clavado
Ta' escapando, ta' pirado.
Tata mio que no me deja respirar
Igual aprendo solo.
Chato mato si, pa' comer y pa' zafar
Paco, fino y rolo.
No te metas con la gente
Que esta toda de la mente
Que son todos clandestinos
Que esta lleno de asesinos.
