LA PUNITIVA

Nuestro México, febrero veintitrés,
dejó Carranza pasar americanos:
dos mil soldados, trescientos aeroplanos,
buscando a Villa por todo el país.

Comenzaron a mandar expediciones,
los aeroplanos comenzaron a volar
por distintas y varias direcciones,
buscando a Villa, queriéndolo matar.

Los soldados que vinieron desde Texas
a Pancho Villa no podían encontrar,
ya fastidiados de ocho horas de camino
los pobrecitos se querían regresar.

Los de a caballo no podían ir sentados
y los de a pie no podían caminar,
entonces Villa les pasa en su aeroplano
entonces Villa les pasa en su aeroplano
y desde arriba les grita: "¡Good-bye!"

Cuando supieron que Villa estaba muerto
todos gritaban henchidos de furor:
‎"Ahora sí, mis queridos compañeros,
vamos a Texas cubiertos con honor".

Mas no sabían que Villa estaba vivo
y que con él nunca iban a poder,
y si querían hacerle una visita
hasta la sierra lo podían ir a ver.

Empezaron a lanzar sus aeroplanos,
entonces Villa un plan les preparó:
se vistió de soldado americano
y a sus tropas también las transformó.

Mas cuando vieron los gringos las banderas
con muchas barras que Villa les pintó,
se bajaron con todo y aeroplanos
y Pancho Villa prisioneros los tomó.

Toda la gente de Chihuahua y Ciudad Juárez
muy asustada y asombrada se quedó
porque miraba tanto gringo y carrancista
que Pancho Villa sin orejas los dejó.

‎¿Qué pensarían los bolillos tan patones,
que con cañones nos iban a asustar?
Si ellos tienen aviones de a montones
‎¡aquí tenemos lo mero principal!

THE PUNITIVE EXPEDITION

In our Mexico, on the 23rd of February,
Carranza let the Americans go across.
Two thousand men and 300 airplanes,
looking for Villa throughout the countryside.

The expeditionary searches began,
and airplanes started to fly.
They went in many different directions,
looking for Villa, with plans to kill him.

But the soldiers who came from Texas
couldn't find Pancho Villa,
and fed up after eight hours on the road,
the poor things wanted to return.

The cavalrymen couldn't sit down
and the infantrymen couldn't walk.
Then Villa flew over on his airplane
and from above he yells: "Good-bye!"

When they believed Villa was dead, t
hey shouted in frenzy:
‎"Now, dear comrades,
we can go back to Texas covered with honor!"

But they didn't know Villa was still alive
and could never be defeated.
And if they wished to visit him,
they should go up to the mountains and see him.

When they sent their airplanes,
Villa prepared a plan.
He dressed as an American soldier
and also disguised his troops.

When the gringos saw the flags
with the stripes that Villa had painted,
they came down in their planes
and Pancho Villa took them prisoner.

The people in Chihuahua and Ciudad Juarez
were frightened and amazed
to see so many gringos and Carranza soldiers
that Villa left without ears.

What did those "big feet" think?
That cannons would frighten us?
They may have loads of airplanes,
but over here we have what really counts!‎
