Train your Spanish Vocabulary with Joaquín Sabina!

Hi guys,

today I woke up with a song in my mind and I thought that I should have shared it with you. Do you know Joaquín Sabina? He is an influent Spanish singer, songwriter and poet born in Jaén in 1949. His biography is really fascinating and he can be considered a fervent anti-fascist artist. Because of his revolutionary ideology and in order to avoid persecution from the Dictator Francisco Franco, Sabina moved to London using a fake passport under the name Mariano Zugasti.

In London he performed in many local bars having the pleasure to meet George Harrison at   “Mexicano-Taverna” who gave him 5 pounds tip. Sabina went back to Spain in 1975 when Franco’s dictatorship ended.

Please, have a look at this video and try to get the lyrics in Spanish. If you need help don’t forget to use your 12speak! personal vocabulary!


Here, the Spanish lyrics with the English translation.

Joaquín Sabina – ¿Quién me ha robado el mes de abril?

En la posada del fracasoDonde no hay consuelo ni ascensor
El desamparo y la humedad
Comparten colchón
Y cuando por la calle pasa
La vida como un huracán
El hombre del traje gris
Saca un sucio calendario del bolsillo
Y gritaQuién me ha robado el mes de abril
Cómo pudo sucederme a mí
Quién me ha robado el mes de abril
Lo guardaba en el cajón
Donde guardo el corazón

La chica de bup casi todas
Las asignaturas suspendió
El curso que preñada
Aquel chaval la dejó
Y cuando en la pizarra pasa
Lista el profe de latín
Lágrimas de desamor
Ruedan por las páginas de un bloc
Y en el escribe

Quíen me ha robado el mes de abril
Cómo pudo sucederme a mí
Pero, quién me ha robado el mes de abril
Lo guardaba en el cajón
Donde guardo el corazón

El marido de mi madre
En el último tren se marchó
Con una peluquera
Veinte años menor
Y cuando exhiben esas risas
De instamatic en parís
Derrotada en el sillón
Se marchita viendo falconcrest
Mi vieja, y piensa,

Quién me ha robado el mes de abril
Cómo pudo sucederme a mí
Quién me ha robado el mes de abril
Lo guardaba en el cajón
Donde guardo el corazón

In the inn’s failureWhere there is no consolation, no elevator
The helplessness and humidity
share mattress
And when the road passes
Life as a hurricane
The man in the gray suit
Take a dirty pocket calendar
And shoutsWho stole April
How could it happen to me
Who stole April
I kept it in the drawer
Where I keep my heart

The girl almost all bup
The subjects discontinued
The course that pregnant
That kid left
And when the board passes
List of Latin profe
Tears of heartbreak
They roll through the pages of a notebook
And he writes

Who did stole April
How could it happen to me
But who has stolen April
I kept it in the drawer
Where I keep my heart

The husband of my mother
The last train left
With a hairdresser
Twenty years younger
And when those laughs exhibit
Instamatic in paris
Defeated on the couch
Wilt seeing Falconcrest
My old, and think,

Who stole April
How could it happen to me
Who stole April
I kept it in the drawer
Where I keep my heart.
