Track Name: Alex Alvear & MANGO BLUE - Immigrant Blues
(Originally in Spanglish)

Listen well to what I have to say
I don;t know why you won't be my friend
I came to this land to work
However, you want to push me aside
You can find bad seeds anywhere
Why should the price be paid by the honest ones?
I'm not asking for your charity
All I want is opportunity!

Chorus
It's an immigrant nation
we all live in an immigrant nation
I work hard for my money
So don't you put the blame on me

I don't want a misunderstanding
I have faith that not all is lost
Let's work together for a solution
Working united to co-exist in harmony
My people have lots to offer
If you would like, we can be best friends
I'm not asking for your charity
All I want is opportunity!

Chorus
It's an immigrant nation
we all live in an immigrant nation
I work hard for my money
So don't you put the blame on me

You know well what I'm talking about
'Cause your own people,
They had to take the same route
I'm not asking for your charity
All I want is opportunity

Chorus
It's an immigrant nation
we all live in an immigrant nation
It's an immigrant nation
Don't you know it's an immigrant nation
I work hard for my money
So don't you put the blame on me
Track Name: Immigrant Blues
ESCUCHA BIEN LO QUE TE DIGO
NO SE PORQUE NO QUIERES SER MI AMIGO
VINE A ESTA TIERRA PA’ TRABAJAR
MAS SINEMBARGO TU ME QUIERES DESPLAZAR
MALAS SEMILLAS HAY EN TODOS LADOS
PORQUE PAGAN EL PRECIO SIEMPRE LOS HONRADOS?
YO NO TE PIDO TU CARIDAD
YO SOLO QUIERO UNA OPORTUNIDAD

IT’S AN IMMIGRANT NATION
WE LIVE IN AN IMMIGRANT NATION
I WORK HARD FOR MY MONEY
SO DON’T YOU PUT THE BLAME ON ME

NO QUIERO AQUI UN MALENTENDIDO
TENGO ESPERANZA DE QUE
TODO AUN NO SE HA PERDIDO
BUSQUEMOS JUNTOS UNA SOLUCION
TRABAJANDO UNIDOS
PARA CONVIVIR EN COMPRENSION
MI GENTE TIENE MUCHO QUE OFRECERTE
SI TU QUISIERAS YO PUEDO SER TU PANA FUERTE
YO NO TE PIDO TU CARIDAD
YO SOLO QUIERO UNA OPORTUNIDAD

IT’S AN IMMIGRANT NATION…

YOU KNOW WELL WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT
‘CAUSE YOUR OWN PEOPLE
THEY HAD TO TAKE THE SAME ROUTE
I’M NOT ASKING FOR YOUR CHARITY,
ALL I WANT IS OPPORTUNITY

IT’S AN IMMIGRANT NATION
WE LIVE IN AN IMMIGRANT NATION
I WORK HARD FOR MY MONEY
SO DON’T YOU PUT THE BLAME ON ME
Track Name: A Moverse!
MUEVE LA CADERA
PORQUE ESTE RITMO QUE TRAIGO
ESTA CANDELA

GOZA A TU MANERA
PORQUE ESTE RITMO
SE BAILA COMO QUIERA
Track Name: Cha-Cha Blue
I HAVE A CRAVING FOR YOUR LOVE
TO TOUCH YOUR FACE
TO RUN MY FINGERS THROUGH YOUR HAIR
TO FEEL THE SWEETNESS OF YOUR BREATH
THE JOY OF YOUR EMBRACE
YOUR TENDER KISS
A HUNGER THAT I CANNOT SATISFY
THIS FEELING GROWS EACH TIME WE SAY GOODBYE
WHEN I’M WITH YOU ITS ALL SO CLEAR
YOU FILL MY HEART WITH EXTASY
I FEEL COMPLETE WHEN YOU’RE WITH ME

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? I DON’T KNOW
I NEVER THOUGHT
THAT I COULD FEEL THIS WAY AGAIN
I’VE BEEN SO LONELY, ‘BEEN SO COLD
WAITING FOR SO LONG
‘TIL YOU APPEARED
YOU’VE GIVEN ME A REASON TO BELIEVE
ITS LIKE A DREAM I THOUGHT COULD NEVER BE
EACH DAY I LONG TO HAVE YOU NEAR
YOU’RE IN MY THOUGHTS, YOU’RE IN MY SONGS
THE LOVE I FEEL IS GROWING STRONG

Coro

POR TU CUERPO SUSPIRO
POR TUS BESOS DELIRO
AUNQUE YA NO ME QUIERAS MAS
YO SIGO PENSANDO EN TI
Track Name: Cosa Linda
PELO DE LLUVIA, LA BOCA DE MIEL
OJOS QUE ACARICIAN, QUE INCITAN LOCURA
MANOS TRAVIESAS, DE SEDA LA PIEL
Y UN CORAZON TAN GRANDE COMO EL SOL

ES TU CUERPO COMO UN MAR
QUE QUISIERA NAVEGAR POR TODAS SUS AGUAS
EMPAPARME DE TU OLOR, OLVIDAR TODO DOLOR
DORMIR EN TU PLAYA VIENDO EL ATARDECER

SI ERES LA CLAVE, YO SOY EL TAMBOR
SI ERES EL CANTO, YO SOY LA GUITARRA
SI ERES ABEJA, YO SERE TU FLOR
Y SI ERES DICHA, YO TU GOZADOR

ES TU CUERPO COMO UN MAR
QUE QUISIERA NAVEGAR POR TODAS SUS AGUAS
EMPAPARME DE TU OLOR, OLVIDAR TODO DOLOR
DORMIE EN TU PLAYA VIENDO EL ATARDECER

Coro I
