by Luis Garcia
Mi Nicaragua is a place where you sudar como a chicharon
My Nicaragua is where you could eat cheese and salty queso y bean enchiladas
Mi Nicaragua is where you could take a shower en la noche and a shower en la lluvia
My Nicaragua is where you could take a shower con agua fria
Mi Nicaragua is where you have your zapstos on, it sweats like rain
My Nicaragua is where me parents se separaron like un palo breaking apart.
I AM NICARAGUA
Mi Nicaragua is where bastante de mi familia murieron
My Nicaragua is where I felt trembling and shaking in my stomach cuando the air plane takes off
Mi Nicaragua is when my stomach estaba rumbling y no se if it was of my hunger or the airplane engine
If my Nicaragua estuviera aqui yo estuviera playing naked in the streets con my brothers y hermana
(Music: "La Rama" by Sistema Bomb)
