Lyrics

esta es una historia
como muchas otras mas
que contaba un abuelo
a su nieto en la ciudad
de tenochtitlan
eramos un pueblo
dedicado a trbajar
no es que fueramos perfectos
pero se vivia en paz
la naturaleza
nos enseñaba a vivir
nos sentiamos hermanos
dispuestos a compartir
la racion de maiz
si, si la racion de maiz
llegaron unos hombres
como en nuestra antiguedad
y creiamos que eran dioses
que venian a ayudar
nos trataron como a perros
con la excusa de enseñar
casi nos extarminaron
los que vinieron del mar
ay tenochtitlan ay ay ay tenochtitlan
tu madre no pudo
resistir la crueldad
de unos hombres cuyo instinto
nunca tuvo un animal
tu padre lucho
y acabo envuelto en sangre
y tu abuela, mi mujer
cayo en manos de cobardes
hay miseria y hambre
ay tenochtitlan ay ay ay tenochtitlan
llegaron unos hombres
como en nuestra antiguedad
y creiamos que eran dioses
que venian a ayudar
nos trataron como a perros
con la excusa de enseñar
casi nos exterminaron
los que vinieron del mar
ay tenochtitlan ay ay ay tenochtitlan
esto es una historia
clavada como una espina
que contaba un abuelo
a su nieto en las ruinas
de tenochtitlan
si, si de tenochtitlan
ay tenochtitlan
ay, ay tenochtitlan
hoy es Mexico
distrito federal
ay tenochtitlan
ay, ay tenochtitlan

Lyrics translation

this is a story
like many others
that a grandfather told
to his grandson in the city
de tenochtitlan
we were a town
dedicated to trbajar
not that we were perfect
but it lived in peace
nature
he taught us to live
we felt like brothers
willing to share
the corn ration
yes, and the corn ration
some men arrived.
as in our antiquity
and we thought they were gods
who came to help
they treated us like dogs.
with the excuse of teaching
we almost got extarmed.
those who came from the sea
ay tenochtitlan Ay Ay Ay tenochtitlan
your mother couldn't
resist cruelty
of men whose instincts
he never had an animal.
your father lucho
and I end up wrapped in blood
and your grandmother, my wife
I fall into the hands of cowards
there is misery and hunger
ay tenochtitlan Ay Ay Ay tenochtitlan
some men arrived.
as in our antiquity
and we thought they were gods
who came to help
they treated us like dogs.
with the excuse of teaching
they almost exterminated us.
those who came from the sea
ay tenochtitlan Ay Ay Ay tenochtitlan
this is a story
nailed like a thorn
that a grandfather told
to his grandson in the ruins
de tenochtitlan
yes, and tenochtitlan
ay tenochtitlan
ay, ay tenochtitlan
today is Mexico
federal district
ay tenochtitlan
ay, ay tenochtitlan
