Que triste, se oye la lluvia
En los techos de cartуn
Que triste vive mi gente
En las casas de cartуn.
Viene bajando el obrero
Casi arrastrando sus pasos
Por el peso del sufrir
Mira que es mucho el sufrir
Mira que pesa el sufrir
Arriba deja la mujer premiada
Abajo esta la ciudad
Y se pierde en su marea
Hoy es lo mismo que ayer
Es un mundo sin maсana.
Que triste, se oye la lluvia
En los techos de cartуn
Que triste vive mi gente
En las casas de cartуn.
Con sus mismas cicatrices
Millonarios de lombrices y,
Por eso que tristes viven los niсos
En las casas de cartуn
Que triste, se oye la lluvia
En los techos de cartуn
Que triste vive mi gente
En las casas de cartуn.
Usted no lo va a creer
Pero hay escuelas de perros
Y les dan educaciуn
Pa'que no muerdan los diarios
Pero el patrуn
Hace aсos muchos aсos
Que esta mordiendo al obrero
Que triste, se oye la lluvia
En los techos de cartуn
Que lejos, pasa una esperanza
En las casas de cartуn.

    This song is truly deep. It is hard to explain the complete meaning of it as it is written explaining the feelings that decades of injustice set by governments and militias have brought to its citizens. It talks about the sadness of living in cardboard homes and how even the rain sounds sad falling on their roofs. Male children of ages around 12 or younger would be taken to from their mothers when the military would pass by a town and they would be used as soldiers. The towns would give a warning when they saw the soldiers coming so children would go and hide. It talks about oppression and how the government doesn't give them education to keep them from succeeding or revolting but even dogs get a education. The movie "Voces Inocentes" (innocent Voices) shows a lot of this and it is truly a wonderful film. You can find the whole movie on YouTube now days. It was illegal then to own a radio and have it on certain stations because they talked about revolution and the government didn't want people to be listening to "revolutionary propaganda" they would arrest you or kill you if they caught you listening to certain radio stations.
