Excuse Me

© All Rights Reserved.

 

Apurados, apurados,

todos andan apurados;

yo me pregunto ¿hacia dónde?,

me pregunto ¿a qué lugar?

 

Apurados, apurados,

todos andan apurados;

dicen “¡permiso, permiso!”,

dicen “¿me deja pasar?”

 

Apurados, apurados,

todos andan apurados;

¿por qué van tan apurados?,

¿adónde quieren llegar?

 

(Douglas Wright).

 

-----------------------------

  

In a hurry, in a hurry,

everyone is in a hurry.

I wonder – where are they heading?

I wonder – to where?

  

In a hurry, in a hurry,

everyone is in a hurry.

They say, “Excuse me! Excuse me!”

They say, “Will you let me by?”

  

In a hurry, in a hurry,

everyone is in a hurry.

Why are they in such a hurry?

Where do they want to get to?

  

(Douglas Wright).
