lyrics

I got teardrops in my shoes, cause i’m looking for you.
I lost my finger, now it’s all I can do.
I got friends in wheelchairs. You know why I’m alive?
Someone upstairs is looking’ down on me.

Now my brother, he says Ramon, you piss like a puppy.
If you can’t hang with the big dog get under the porch.
Portate bien, no llores, just remember.

You put the monkey on the ball, you got ten more on the bottom.
Gotta have five hands, ten hands.
No tengo cola, change a la pelota.

You ate corn with tamales in the morning.
Mama said you dare sneeze or cough at the table, I’ll slap you outta your chair.
Well, I did so she did, she says to me.
Portate bien, no llores, just remember.

You put the monkey on the ball, you got ten more on the bottom.
Gotta have five hands, ten hands.
No tengo cola, change a la pelota.

Do you know why I'm alive?
Someone upstairs is looking' down on me.
