about

Miami Cubans are a funny bunch.

lyrics

Rococo People, On a Baroque beach.
A dog in a sweater. A baby on a leash.
Go down to Miami, and You'll see what I mean
When I tell you that this place, ain't what it seems.

Votaron pa' Batista pero todo 'naranjao'
Por el miedo que tuvieron (del)
Socialismo 'reventao
Acere! Mujeres! Dale Caballero
El que manda en esta case es el que tiene el dinero.

[They voted for Batista, except this one's all orange,
Out of fear they had for socialism run wild
Hey Buddy! Hey ladies! Go dudes!
The one with the money is the boss of this house.]

Rococo People, On a Baroque beach ....

Gusanos y Cubanos apoyando el Bloqueo
(Mas) hambre y pobreza pa' la tierra (en) que nacieron!
Acere! Mujeres! Dale Caballero
El que manda en esta case es el que tiene el dinero.

[Worms and Cubans supporting the Embargo
More hunger and poverty for the land in which they were born
Hey Buddy! Hey ladies! Go dudes!
People who love money are the bosses of this house]

"Dad Flow" Part:

Miami came of age along with me
City of my birth shaken from its sleep
By my loudass Cuban family,
By waves of exiliados and refugees
Whose flotillas bloodied the vanilla
Of a place so close to my mami's island home
That Havana got itself a front row set to a wannabe version of the Fall of Rome, Our wannabe version of the Fall of Rome
Like the mujeres that you see on the TV pateando/roller skating in thongs to a Latin beat
Por la calle [on the street] on la playa where the playaz wanna be
Where Jared and Ivanka hope to live in peace,
Where what's left of the press forgets (that):
"Art Basel" rhymes with "Art Asshole"
