Eva pasando el trapo sobre la mesa ahí está
Eva passes the rag over the table there it is
cuidando que todo brille como una perla.

Cuando llegue la patrona, que no se vuelva quejar.
When the owner gets here, make sure she doesn't complain again
No sea cosa que la acuse de ilegal.
In case she accuses her of being illegal.
José atiende los jardines, parecen de Disneyland
Jose looks after the garden, they look like they're from Disneyland
Maneja una troca vieja sin la licencia.
He drives an old truck without a license.
No importa si fue taxista allá en su tierra natal
It doesn't matter if he was a taxi driver in his native land
Eso no cuenta para el Tío Sam.
That doesn't count for Uncle Sam.
El Hielo anda suelto por esas calles
ICE is loose in those streets
Nunca se sabe cuando nos va tocar
It is never known when it will be our turn
ahora los niños lloran a la salida
The kids cry at the door
Lloran al ver que no llegará mamá
They cry when they see Mom won't arrive

Eso pasa por salir a trabajar.La Santa Cecilia

Uno se queda aquí, otro se queda allá,
One stays here, the other stays over there
Eso pasa por salir a trabajar.
That's what happens for leaving to work.
Marta llegó de niña y sueña con estudiar.
Marta arrived as a child and dreams of learning
Pero se le hace difícil sin los papeles.
But it is difficult for her to do so without papers
Se quedan con los laureles los que nacieron acá,
The ones who were born here stay with their laurel wreaths
Pero ella nunca deja de luchar.
But she will never stop fighting.
El Hielo anda suelto por esas calles
ICE is loose in those streets
Nunca se sabe cuando nos va tocar
It is never known when it will be our turn
Lloran los niños lloran a la salida
Cry, the children cry at the door
Lloran al ver que no llegará mamá
They cry when they see Mom won't arrive
Uno se queda aquí, otro se queda allá,
One stays here, the other stays over there
Eso pasa por salir a trabajar.
That's what happens for leaving to work.
Uno se queda aguí, otro se queda allá,
One stays here, the other stays over there,
Eso pasa por salir a trabajar.
That's what happens for leaving to work.
