Mecano – Madrid lyrics

A unos les toca en Gambia
y a otros en Pekin, oh
y a mi me toc nacer
en Madrid, en Madrid.
Y no es un trauma
ni un orgullo para mi, eh
por qu no me dejaron elegir?
Oh, Madrid!
Una ciudad de alquitran,
hierro, cemento y cristal.
En Madrid
caen sombras largas
de edificios sobre mi, oh
bajo mis pies siento crecer Madrid
Oh, Madrid!
Se ha hecho tan grande
y tan pequeo para mi, eh
que slo hay sitio
para ir y venir por Madrid.
Y no sobreviviras
si no funcionas a gas.
En Madrid (4x)
Alguna gente no lo puede soportar
yo ya sin humo no s respirar, respirar.
Alguna gente
alguna gente
alguna gente
no lo puede soportar, oh
yo ya sin humo no s respirar en Madrid.
A unos les toca en Gambia
y a otros en Pekin, oh
y a mi me toca nacer
en Madrid, en Madrid.
