Vergüenza
Ska-P Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Entre el Atlántico why el mar Mediterráneo hay una tierra de mar why mucho sol
que desde antaño se viene practicando una asquerosa why sucia tradición:
Un individuo vestido de payaso tortura why martiriza hasta la muerte a un animal
why el graderío estalla de locura cuando el acero anuncia su final.

Banderilleros sedientos de violencia van torturando sin ninguna compasión
los picadores prosiguen la matanza acentuando punzadas de dolor
Malherido, enviste con bravura contra el frío del acero que destroza su interior
agonizando en un charco de sangre, el puntillero remata la función.

Festejo criminal, vergüenza...

Torero, eres la vergüenza de una nación
Torero, eres la violencia en televisión
Torero, eres asesino por vocación
Torero, me produce asco tu profesión

Llamar cultura al sadismo organizado, a la violencia, a la muerte o al dolor
es un insulto a la propia inteligencia, al desarrollo de nuestra evolución.
Tu indiferencia les hare poderosos, manifiesta tu repulsa a la fiesta criminal
no colabores con un juego de dementes, taurinos al código penal.

Festejo criminal, vergüenza...

Torero, eres la vergüenza de una nación
Torero, eres la violencia en televisión
Torero, eres asesino por vocación
Torero, me produce asco tu profesión





Festejo criminal, vergüenza...

Overall Meaning

The song "Vergüenza" by Ska-P is a powerful condemnation of bullfighting, a practice that has long been a part of Spanish culture. The lyrics describe the horrific violence that takes place during a bullfight, with a clown torturing and ultimately killing the animal while the audience cheers on. The band expresses their disgust at this "criminal celebration" and calls out the toreros (bullfighters) as being "the shame of a nation" and "murderers by vocation".


The song also highlights the hypocrisy of calling bullfighting a "cultural tradition" when it is, in fact, a grotesque and inhumane spectacle. The band urges listeners to speak out against this practice and not be complicit in the suffering of animals. The overall message of the song is that bullfighting is a stain on Spanish society and should be abolished.


Overall, "Vergüenza" is a powerful and emotional condemnation of bullfighting, delivered in Ska-P's signature style of punk-influenced ska. The lyrics are straightforward and unapologetic, and the song is a call to action for anyone who cares about animal welfare and human decency.
