Excitable Boy


El álbum "Excitable Boy" de Warren Zevon incluye una canción llamada "Veracruz" en referencia a la ocupación estadounidense de 1914.
Describe la batalla y caos desde el punto de vista de un residente de Veracruz. En el último verso, en español traducido al inglés, el personaje dice: "Aquel día yo juré / hacia el puerto volveré / aunque el destino cambio mi vida / en Veracruz moriré".
I heard Woodrow Wilson's guns
I heard Maria crying
Late last night I heard the news
That Veracruz was dying
Veracruz was dying

Someone called Maria's name
I swear it was my father's voice
Saying: "If you stay you'll all be slain
You must leave now - you have no choice
Take the servants and ride west
Keep the child close to your chest
When the American troops withdraw
Let Zapata take the rest"

I heard Woodrow Wilson's guns
I heard Maria calling
Saying: "Veracruz is dying
And Cuernavaca's falling"

Aquel día yo juré (On that day I swore)
Hacia el puerto volveré (To the port I will return)
Aunque el destino cambio mi vida (Even though destiny changed my life)
En Veracruz moriré (In Veracruz I shall die)
Aquel día yo juré (On that day I swore)

I heard Woodrow Wilson's guns
I heard them in the harbor
Saying, "Veracruz is dying"
