No Te Pares
Ska-P Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hoy, firmando el finiquito
ya reboso de ilusión.
Me he quedado sin trabajo,
en paro why sin liquidación
con la abuela, con la suegra,
con dos niños ¡qué marrón!
Tío, vaya suerte,
hago yo el cuarto millón.

No puedo pagar el piso,
voy a tener que hipotecar
why las letras se acumulan
yo no las puedo pagar
qué alegría, amigo mío,
ya no puedo ni sobar
ni con el agua imantada
ni la almohada cervical.

why nos dicen desde arriba:
"Hay que apretarse el cinturón"
yo, como siga apretando,
me giño en el pantalón.
A ellos no les afecta,
es que no llevan cinturón
sus sueldos son enormes,
trapicheos, corrupción.

SOY UN NUEVO PARAO
CAMINO DEL INEM
SOY UN NUEVO PRINGAO
SÃ?, OH SÃ?.

Me explicó una funcionaria
muy activa del INEM
donde dije dijo Diego,
why donde digo ya diré.
La Contitución me ampara,
democracia de pastel
con un poco de suerte
hoy no tengo "pa" comer.

Mientras tanto, tu tranquilo,
no te vayas a cansar
ya somos cuatro millones
why aquí no ha pasao "na".
¡Vaya sociedad pasiva!,
amigo mío, hay que luchar
democracia significa
que el pueblo ha de gobernar.

SOY UN NUEVO PARADO
CAMINO DEL INEM




SOY UN NUEVO PRINGAO
SÃ?, OH SÃ?.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "No Te Pares" by Ska-P are about the struggles of being unemployed and the frustration that comes with it. The singer opens with optimism despite recently losing their job and receiving no compensation for it. However, the reality of the situation sets in quickly as they are left with no income, a mortgage they can't pay, and bills they can't keep up with. The frustration builds when the singer realizes how unfair it is that those in power are not feeling the same financial setbacks as those they govern. The lyrics further explore the flawed system that is supposed to protect the people, but instead, leaves them helpless.


The singer criticizes the government's suggestion that people "tighten their belts," implying that this statement only affects those who rely on their paycheck to survive. The lyrics also touch on the lack of power that the people feel, with the government not taking enough action to help those who are struggling. Through these lyrics, Ska-P highlights the importance of democracy in its truest form, where the people have the power to govern themselves.
