    working on it, but there's lots of slang that I don't know. Trying to keep the 'feeling' of the song, but I haven't heard the whole thing. If I had the song to listen to and compare, it'd be WAY easier.
    Should be studying for finals, but this is more entertaining!

    Cool some of it

    Well, this is what I have... the slang is difficult for me. I'll work on it more when I get home from Spring Break.


    Even though they say that I am
    A Bandit wherever I go
    I give thanks to God
    For being where I am today
    And I will continue my knock down <my domination?>
    With my colored <dark> eyes
    With my worked up girls
    You have not sent me away


    Listen, It doesn’t matter to me what you say about ???
    William Landron and I are street associates
    I’m a bandit like mister political
    Who robbed all the money and got nominated again
    (as if it were nothing) If he was <Tego Calderón> or Don Omar
    They’d give us conspiracy and throw away the key
    And I’m not an example, my respect in time
    Your only offense was having talent
    What do you want me to write
    Jokes, lies
    That the D.E.A has me in their sights
    I am absolutely clear
    I pay my taxes
    You criticize me if I work
    You criticize me if I’m idle (what are you gonna do) I do in the first <I do things well>
    And they treat me second rate
    Like this you <love, adore, enjoy> nothing
    Like the black rumble (that’s the truth)
    I am your boogeyman
    I have the disruption (I will mess you up)
    Known around the world as the (Maluco)


    Even though they say that I am
    A Bandit wherever I go
    I give thanks to God
    For being where I am today
    And I will continue my domination
    With my colored (dark) eyes
    With my worked up girls
    You have not sent me away

    "Tumbao" is a hard work to explain.. Its sortof like his flow.. Or style. It can also be used to describe his "Gangster walk"

    And a Bandolero IS a bandit, pirate ect.. But Tego and Don use it to mean more of an old school Gangster.. Not a 50cent type gangster, but a Mafioso- Cigar Smoking, Hat wearing, Cane using-bandolero.

    y con mi ojos colorao= And with my bloodshot eyes

    Hope that clarifies a bit.

    By the way, it's
    "My respect to TEMPO, your only crime was having talent"
    (To quote wikipedia: "Regardless of his battles, TEMPO is fighting to appeal his 24yr sentence in a federal prison for narcotics charges, even though no circumstantial evidence has been found against him. Many politicians and fellow rappers say he was the scapegoat of the government for all drug dealers. To this day he claims his innocence and has stated that he has never trafficed drugs.")

    in tego's first line he is saying:

    oye! a mi me importa poco lo que se diga de mi.
    listen! it matters to me very litte what is said about me.

    I used "it matters to me" instead of "I care" to avoid saying
    "about" twice

    to say " I CARE VERY LITTLE ABOUT WHATS SAID ABOUT ME"
    would still be correct IMHO!

    William ladron y yo somos socios de la avenida.. but lyrics forum does let me write *****, .. I guess it automatically blocks out words that might be offensive ... ignore the last message I hit submit by mistake

    Default Mi respeto a tempo

    i was reading through the translation and noticed that they wrote my respect to "Time" it is really hard to catch but there is a rapper named tempo that is in jail and that is who tego calderon is showing respect for in this song. he pretry much sais that he is not necesarely an example to the unfair justice in puerto rico but he gives a lot of respect to TEMPO because his only crime was having tallet. Tempo was arrested and charged with many felonies like money laundring and drug traffic they used one of his songs named NARCOHAMPON in court as evidence. In this song he spoke about selling drungs and making the feds give him oral sex. the truth is that the first amendment in the constitution is freedom of speech. many think it was unfair that tempo was locked away.

    Default correction to partsbabe chorus

    partsbabe...
    its not knock down...
    meaning of it is.. continue with my flow.
    its not colored dark eyes..
    its wit my red eyes... due to smoking to much.. wich is the real meaning
    and i think wat he means by gatos activao... its my boys behind me.[ i just know it has a different meaning]
    then he says who have given me everything and not you have not sent me away.
    hard time on the chorus. but good job over all.

    tio ,el no juzgarnos se les agradeze
    el beneficio de la duda cualquiera merece

    in this part he says dio not tio this song is about his struggles with the devil and how God has been there to pick him up...numerous times does don omar and tego mention God and the devil and how God helped them thorugh all the trouble with tempo

    this song also has a lot to do with a rapper named tempo

    tempo doesn't mean time tiempo means time



    le doy gracias a dios

    this part he says i say to you now God thank you

    con mi gato activao

    this he is saying not with my gun cocked he says with my men ready sorta like how rappers from america calls their homies cats

    Hey, people love to get skin (I will)
    some by profession, others for (exclusive) bochincheros
    Dale to the boneless socicharronero
    making money with alien suffering
    I am not a Saint, but I am in key
    I am paying toas my evils
    and I am here pulling pa pa'lante
    like that you put do less harm than before
    you you **** what that te matastes tratastes te superatses but you olvidastes (of you)
    of Pope upa this mirandonos above the only judging the niche that does not discriminate
    and I haven't seen "to the manini van"(yo_no) dog
    Street callejon outlaw calderon (if Mr)
    not to judge us is les agradeze
    the benefit of the doubt deserves
