Juana Mayo - R. Blades
Antecedente (1988)
 
Todo cuesta y cada precio es diferente
en un mundo en que la gente
compra su felicidad.
Juana Mayo, peregrina de la acera,
veterana de la espera,
callejera flor de amor.
En sus noches de hombre en hombre
va pasando, desesperado buscando
su razón para vivir.
Rié por fuera y por dentro está llorando
pues lo que ella está buscando
no lo va a encontrar asi.
Juana Mayo, ave de la madrugada,
de tristeza disfrazada
con perfumes y carmín.
Juana Mayo, donde anónimos señores
sacan a pasear dolores
a un jardín de soledad.

Coro: De Juana Mayo. Dime varón
si tú te acuerdas de ella.


English:

A Woman's Name

Everything has a price tag and each one
is different
in a world where people
buy their happiness.
Juana Mayo, sidewalk's pilgrim,
a veteran of waiting,
street's love flower.
In her evenings, she wanders
from man to man desperately searching
for her reason to live.
She laughs but inside she's crying
'cause what she's looking for
she'll never find, not like this.
Juana Mayo, dawn's bird,
of the sad make-up
and the perfumed pain.
Juana Mayo, where anonymous men
take their frustrations for a stroll
through her garden of solitide.

Chorus: Of Juana Mayo. Tell me man,
do you remember her?
