Manana Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The faucet she is dripping and the fence she's fallin' down
My pocket needs some money, so I can't go into town
My brother isn't working and my sister doesn't care
The car she needs a motor so I can't go anywhere
(Mañana, mañana, mañana is soon enough for me)
Verse 2
My mother's always working, she's working very hard
But every time she looks for me I'm sleeping in the yard
My mother thinks I'm lazy and maybe she is right
I'll go to work mañana but I gotta sleep tonight
(Mañana, mañana, mañana is soon enough for me)
Verse 3
Oh, once I had some money but I gave it to my friend
He said he'd pay me double, it was only for a lend
But he said a little later that the horse she was so slow
Why he give the horse my money is something I don't know
(Mañana, mañana, mañana is soon enough for me)
Verse 4
(Mañana, mañana, mañana is soon enough for me)
Verse 5
My brother took a suitcase and he went away to school
My father said he only learned to be a silly fool
My father said that I should learn to make a chili pot
But then I burned the house down, the chili was too hot
(Mañana, mañana, mañana is soon enough for me)
Verse 6
The window she is broken and the rain is comin' in
If someone doesn't fix it I'll be soaking to my skin
But if we wait a day or two the rain may go away
And we don't need a window on such a sunny day
(Mañana, mañana, mañana is soon enough for me) Oba! Oba!
(Mañana, mañana, mañana is soon enough for me) Oba! Oba!
