La Cucaracha Lyrics Translation


The song's earliest lyrics, from which its name is derived, concern a cockroach that has lost one of its six legs and struggles to walk with the remaining five. The cockroach's uneven, five-legged gait is imitated by the song's original, 5/4 meter,[citation needed] formed by removing one upbeat (corresponding to the missing sixth leg) from the second half of a 6/4 measure:




La Cucaracha Lyrics Translation



Many later versions of the song, especially those whose lyrics do not mention the cockroach's missing leg(s), extend the last syllable of each line to fit the more familiar 6/4 meter. Almost all modern versions, however, use a 4/4 meter instead with a clave rhythm to give the feeling of three pulses.


The origins of "La Cucaracha" are obscure.[1] The refrain's lyrics make no explicit reference to historical events; it is difficult, if not impossible, therefore, to date. Because verses are improvised according to the needs of the moment,[2] however, they often enable a rough estimate of their age by mentioning contemporary social or political conditions (thus narrowing a version's possible time of origin to periods in which those conditions prevailed) or referring to specific current or past events (thus setting a maximum boundary for a version's age).


Some early versions of the lyrics refer to the confrontation between Moroccan (referred popularly as 'Moors' by the Spanish) and Spanish troops, during the Hispano-Moroccan War that marked the Spanish popular imagery during its development from 1859 to 1860.[3]


During the Mexican Revolution of the early 20th century, "La Cucaracha" saw the first major period of verse production as rebel and government forces alike invented political lyrics for the song. Many stanzas were added during this period that today it is associated mostly with Mexico.[2]


SpanishLa cucaracha, la cucaracha,ya no puede caminarporque no tiene, porque le faltamarihuana que fumar. Ya murió la cucarachaya la llevan a enterrarentre cuatro zopilotesy un ratón de sacristán.


SpanishOigan con gusto estos versosescuchen con atención,ya la pobre cucarachano consigue ni un tostón. Todo se ha puesto muy carocon esta Revolución,venden la leche por onzasy por gramos el carbón.


Soldiers in Porfirio Diaz's army sang "La cucaracha" about a soldadera who wanted money to go to the bullfights. For the Villistas, "'La cucaracha' wanted money for alcohol and marijuana. She was often so drunk or stoned that she could not walk straight," writes Elizabeth Salas in Mexican Military: Myth and History. "Unlike corridos about male revolutionaries like Villa and Zapata, none of the well-known corridos about soldaderas give their real names or are biographical. Consequently, there are very few stanzas that ring true about women in battle or the camps," Salas writes.


Nowadays, La cucaracha is a popular song among children. There are tons of versions, each one more nonsensical than the next. The lyrics vary greatly, but the catchy beat and fun story line remain the same.

"La Cucaracha" being about Huerta is only one interpretation of a song that had hundreds of verses. She could also be a female soldadera, see: -cucaracha-female-mexican-sold.... I asked a mariachi band to play the song for me in LA's Sonoratown a few years ago, and the older guy in the band didn't know the marijuana verse, so thank you for writing about it!

Or something like that. In other words, I had no idea what I was singing. And likely neither did the teacher, unless she had some sort of twisted sense of humor. Here are the Spanish lyrics I learned in Spanish class in high school (this was the coolest day of Spanish class ever).
