Y En Eso llegó Fidel (And Then Fidel Arrived)



Aquí pensaban seguir,
ganando el ciento por ciento,
con casas de apartamentos,
y echar al pueblo a sufrir.
Y seguir de modo cruel
contra el pueblo conspirando,
para seguirlo explotando... y en eso llegó Fidel!

Y se acabó la diversión:
llegó el Comandante y mandó a parar!

Aquí pensaban seguir,
tragando y tragando tierra,
sin sospechar que en la Sierra
se alumbraba el porvenir.
Y seguir de modo cruel
la costumbre del delito:
hacer de Cuba un garito... y en eso llegó Fidel!

Y se acabó la diversión:
llegó el Comandante y mandó a parar!

Aquí pensaban seguir
diciendo que los cuatreros,
forajidos, bandoleros,
asolaban al país.
Y seguir de modo cruel
con la infamia por escudo,
difamando a los barbudos... y en eso llegó Fidel!

Y se acabó la diversión:
llegó el Comandante y mandó a parar!

Aquí pensaban seguir,
jugando a la democracia
y el pueblo, que en su desgracia,
se acabara de morir.
Y seguir de modo cruel,
sin cuidarse ni la forma,
con el robo como norma... y en eso llegó Fidel!

Y se acabó la diversión:
llegó el Comandante y mandó a parar!

Here, they thought that they would continue,
earning one hundred percent,
with apartment houses,
and to make the people to suffer.
And they wanted to continue in a cruel way,
conspiring against the people,
and to continue exploiting them ... and then Fidel arrived!

The fun times are over:
The Commander arrived and told them to stop!

Here, they thought that they would continue,
swallowing and swallowing dirt,
without suspecting that in the Sierra
a new future was dawning.
And they wanted to continue in a cruel way,
the custom of the crime:
to turn Cuba into a gambling den ... and then Fidel arrived!

The fun times are over:
The Commander arrived and told them to stop!

Here, they thought that they would continue,
saying that the thieves,
outlaws, bandits,
ravaged the country.
And they wanted to continue in a cruel way,
with infamy as a shield,
defaming the bearded ones ... and then Fidel arrived!

The fun times are over:
The Commander arrived and told them to stop!

Here they thought that they would continue,
playing their democracy games,
And the people, in their misfortune,
would soon die.
And they wanted to continue in a cruel way,
without care as to how it was done,
robbery was the norm... and then Fidel arrived!

The fun times are over:
The Commander arrived and told them to stop!
