Manana (is Soon Enough For Me)


The faucet she is dripping and the fence is falling down,
My pocket needs some money so I can go in to town,
My brother is not working and my sister does not care,
The car she needs a motor so I can not go anywhere.

Chorus: Manana, Manana, Manana is soon enough for me.

My mothers always working, she working very hard,
But every time she looks for me I'm sleeping in the yard,
My mother thinks I'm lazy, and maybe she is right,
I'll go to work Manana but I gotta sleep tonight.

(Chorus)

Oh once I had some money but I gave it to my friend,
He said he'd pay me double, it was only for a lend,
But he said a little later that the horse he was so slow,
why he give the horse my money is something I don't know.

(Chorus)

My brother took a suitcase and he went away to school,
My father said he only learned to be a silly fool,
My father said that I should learn to make a chili pot,
But then I burned the house down the chili was too hot.

(Chorus)

The window she is broken and the rain is coming in,
If someone doesn't fix it I'll be soakin' to my skin,
But if we wait a day or two the rain may go away,
And we don't need a window on such a sunny day!

(Chorus)
