Track Name: ¡Hola, Guacamaya, Hola!
I guess you’ll have to wait your turn
To see my smiling face
My eye lids squeezing waterfalls
My arms around your waist

The airplanes thunder up above
And land just down the street
The clouds can’t fly high enough
To touch the tallest peaks

Stuck in the Andes, down in a valley
I was just thinking, I could come home soon
To say how I love you, to my friends and my family
I will return here, you won’t be sorry

Las aves con su voz humana
Me despiertan cada mañana
“Hola hola! hola hola! hola hola!”
Me dicen
“Levantáte, juega conmigo,
Ven aqui mi pobrecito
Volamos como en tus sueños
Nunca estarás solo”

I am stranger under my own skin
The beautiful people, these curious children
Christ is a savior, oh he’s on every billboard
But nobody’s learned from all that he’s taught them

Estoy en los Andes, abajo en un valle
Estaba pensando que podría volver pronto
A decir que les amo, mi amor y mis amigos
Prométenme que nunca me van a olvidar
