Singing Spanish - Caetano Veloso

My friend Dave listens to Spanish radio to help improve his Spanish. I tried that but like with most pop music stations, I cannot deal with the DJs' shouting and drivel - especially drivel I can barely understand. I've decided to watch Spanish movies and listen to Spanish songs instead. This Caetano Veloso song is in an album of his that I own - Antologia 67/03. Unfortunately, I left the CD sleeve back in Singapore so I can't read the lyrics as I listen to his songs. Thank goodness for Google - found the lyrics and the translation below by Genève Gil. It's not a line-by-line translation but it's all there. You can read it as you listen to the song - it's completely charming.
