Te Engaìaron/ They deceived you lyrics and
music by Luis J. Prat
Te mandaron a la guerra a luchar y a morir
Te mandaron a matar gente que nunca te hizo naÃ
Te mandaron a defender los intereses del capital
Te mandaron a morir por una causa
Que no es la tuya
Ni la m√a, solo la de ellos
Los que mandan, los de siempre,
A una guerra que los niìos biºn
Te engaìaron con patriotismo y con promesas de poder estudiar
Te dijeron que defend√as la democracia y la libertad
Bombardeaste, destruiste disparaste y mataste
Tambiºn viste a tus compaìeros
Volando por el aire en pedacitos
Tu regresaste sin tus piernas
Tuerto de un ojo, loco de remate
De una guerra que los que la empezaron
Son muy cobardes paÃ luchar.
They sent you to a war to fight and to die
And they sent you to kill people that never did you any harm.
And they sent you to defend the interests of capital
And they sent you to your death
For a cause thatÃs not your cause
Nor is it mine, itÃs only theirs,
Those who rule, been ruling for too long
To a war the children of the rich
Will never have to fight.
They deceived you with patriotism and with promises of higher education
And they told you were defending freedom and democracy.
And you bombed, you destroyed and you shot and you killed
And you got to see your friends
Blown up to the sky in little pieces
And you came back without your legs
Blind in one eye, crazy as hell
From a war the chickenhawks who started it
Are too coward to fight.
