Que bonitos ojos tienes
Debajo de esas dos cejas
Debajo de esas dos cejas
Que bonitos ojos tienes.

Ellos me quieren mirar
Pero si tu no los dejas
Pero si tu no los dejas
Ni siquiera parpadear.

Malaguena salerosa
Besar tus labios quisiera
Besar tus labios quisiera.
Malaguena salerosa
Y decirte niña hermosa.

Que eres linda y hechicera,
Que eres linda y hechicera
Como el candor de una rosa.

Si por pobre me desprecias
Yo te concedo razón
Yo te concedo razón
Si por pobre me desprecias.

Yo no te ofrezco riquezas
Te ofrezco mi corazon
Te ofrezco mi corazon
A cambio de mi pobreza.

Malaguena salerosa
Besar tus labios quisiera
Besar tus labios quisiera.
Malaguena salerosa
Y decirte niña hermosa.

Que eres linda y hechicera,
Que eres linda y hechicera
Como el candor de una rosa.
Y decirte niña hermosa.

Well put sir. That said after having read comments for a few years around here, there's few a distinct factions around here.

Relevant to your commentary there's the "Lynnrd/Credence/Earle" faction for lack of a better name, who loose their 💩 every time Bill plays any of "awl that there foreign-commie-non-'Murican crap". 

Then of course there's the metabolically challenged thankful hippie-dippie types; "Duude, can't we all just get along and listen to the music and happily reminisce about whatever mellow memories it brings up? " - No, dammit. Cause it won't always be lyrical rainbows shooting musical unicorns out their ass, because some artists and/or tunes just pisses us off.

And that brings us to another crowd, those of us who does the occasional drive-by comment which we try to make funny or otherwise enjoyable to read. Yes, we're all flawed people with opinions: I for one would be happy to throw Radiohead, Michael Stipe and David Byrne into a woodchipper to a 230 bpm drum track, but hey I'll settle for the PSD button. 😜

Oh Bill.. is it the xmas wine? Lockdown?... the music?..  you've just made me dance like a crazed goat around the kitchen with them last few songs.. keep up the good work! 
malageeeeeeeeeeeeeeeena

eres liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinda y hechisera
FUN!!!!
Dig the album name - Mexican Spaghetti Western 
They make good music, but the master on this song is still Travis Edmondson.

Great song from my time in Tucson in the 70's.
There is a slower, more gorgeous version of this song from Trio Los Hombres.
A lively and energetic Trio

Too bad some of the leftoids I've known are very much this same ignorant way. Racism of low expectations is perhaps the worst sort.
All those racist police (members of unions) and gov'ts being protested right now? Dem cities run by dems for decades, mostly in Dem run states.
Somehow this is the average Trump voters fault? 
Even better, it is all based on lies they are force fed. Twice as many whites are killed by police than blacks, and yet blacks have the larger percentage committing crimes.

Adios amigo.  Thanks for your candor,  if not your sentiment.   As you can see by other replies, you are in the minority.

What beautiful eyes you have.

They want to look at me

Not even blink.

Kiss your lips I would like
Kiss your lips I would like.
Malaguena salerosa
And tell you beautiful girl.

That you are pretty and sorceress,
That you are pretty and sorceress
Like the candor of a rose.

If you despise me for poor
I grant you reason
I grant you reason
If you despise me for poor.

I do not offer you riches
I offer you my heart
I offer you my heart
In exchange for my poverty.

A few comments for you and other "Americans" who don't prefer "this kind of music":

1. The founding members of Chignon are Americans. Robert Rodriguez was born in San Antonio, Texas, U.S., attended St. Anthony Catholic High School and University of Texas at Austin. He is also a filmmaker and visual effects supervisor, and is the best friend and a frequent collaborator of filmmaker Quentin Tarantino. Mark and Rick del Castillo were born in Brownsville, Texas, United States. Raised in a family with many musical influences, Mark started learning guitar at age 14, following after his talented older brother Rick del Castillo. For some time Mark studied guitar by himself; then in year 1990 he entered the University of Texas at Brownsville and became a Music Major. There Mark studied Music Theory, Ear Training, and Applied Guitar and played in University Latin/Jazz band. Fellow Brownsville native and the band’s bassist, Albert Besteiro, is himself is a big fan of Los Lobos and Wilco, among others.

2. As you can see by reading the other comments here, there are plenty of us "Americans" who DO prefer this kind of music to most of the formulaic KREP you can find on any Top 40 playlist out there today, which is why we're all here listening to Bill & Rebecca's Excellent Adventure in Music.

3. According to a 2015 report by Instituto Cervantes, the United States has the second highest concentration of Spanish speakers in the world, after Mexico. Roughly 53 million people, 41 million native Spanish speakers, and approximately 11.6 million bilingual Spanish Speakers live in the United States. There are more people speaking Spanish in the U.S. than Spain (47 million speakers) and Colombia (48 million speakers). By 2050, the United States is expected to have 138 million Spanish speakers, making it the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world.

You may want to consider enrolling in a Spanish class.

Seriously I send you the highest of high fives!

Every time I hear this I tell myself to go look up a translation for the lyrics. Such a rich melody and vocals!
 
ETA: and of course I scroll down and find a translation. Thanks, RP friend!
Entre dos tierras estoy
Great song.  Great version.
Not bad for Tex-Mex music.   :-)


So does the name of the band 'Chingon' have any relationship with the profane word 'chinga' as in Chinga tu madre?  

In some places the ending 'on' denotes a homosexual or a man who has had his testicles removed.  
Just plane fun!!! Or is that plain fun? My english is no good. LOL
Peppy tune. Alas, I heard the version by The Tubes long before this one. I like both.

You obviously do NOT love music, music is universal, not only American...

Looking at your song comments I guess you only stuck around for about 4 hours and then left looking for "American" music.
VERY DRAMATIC!!!

Could you be more specific, american from which country? The USA I presume.

In music, as in life, you have to be open, don't let your passport to dictate your tastes!

Oh my gosh. Are you kidding? What is 'American?' Does this mean that you only like the music of Native Americans? Or those of your grandparents? I can understand if you don't like this (I love it, but we all have our different tastes in music), but I do kind of object to what I think you were saying in your comment. Sorry.

After hearing this on Kill Bill I absolutely love it, it's been on my driving playlist for years. SO GOOOD! More of this please! :D
So what does Chingon mean in this context:  capable, bright, smart, efficient or....  a big motherfuckin' bad ass?  
What about the TUBES version to compare?

Hasta luego y buen viaje...
Ahora si le quedó bien
a Nuevo Mexico el nombre
A México se parece
en tanta droga que esconde
solo que hay un capo gringo,
por "Heisenberg" lo conocen.

Anda caliente el cartel
Al respeto le faltaron
Hablan de un tal "Heisenberg"
Que ahora controla el mercado
Nadie sabe nada de él
Porque nunca lo han mirado

A la furia del cartel
Nadie jamás ha escapado
Ese compa ya está muerto
Nomás no le han avisado.

I turn off the volume.
It is a love song-and a "like" song too

PS
Its possibly ignorant - but the music means absolutely NOTHING to me!

Rose leaves of Málaga
Kiss your wanted lips

And tell beautiful girl.
You are pretty and magical,

As the innocence of a rose.
If in poverty you despise
I give you reason

I do not offer riches

Love the passion....

Can this guy roll his 'r's, or what?
This diversity in music IS why we listen to RP.  Keep up the great work RP!  I try to recommend you daily.
Ufff, this was the only song my father can play on the guitar, so I kind of got bored of it. Not sure what he would think of this version though!

I'll 2nd that, wholeheartedly.  I have several rather nice audio systems, that for years, were nothing more than dust collectors. They've come back to life & are rockin', better than ever!
Thanks Bill!



 
Cuts like this one are why I miss Tejano radio after leaving Texas.  Great stuff.
It's rhythm.

This is a total standard for mariachi bands - the singers have to be able to the plaintive prolonged warbling moan that is part of the chorus which El Chingon does a pretty good job with. A little faster than it's usually done, but that's not bad.
