Si alguien habla de mí, mujercita
Si alguien habla de mí en tu presencia
Diles que yo soy tu negro santo
Diles que yo soy tu negro santo

Yo soy un feo,
feo que sabe amar
con todo su corazón
y te quiere de verdad

Yo soy un feo,
feo que sabe amar
con todo su corazón
y te llevará al altar.

Sabor a Pollo

Written By: Greg Brosnan

Si alguna vez amaste has de saber
que amar a quien te ama puede ser
la razón para vivir y pa' morir
te duele el alma de tanto querer

tal vez me confundí, pensé que tú
igual que yo, sintieras algo así
no sé si yo aguanto más dolor
sin ti mi vida no tiene sabor

I don't know what to think
I don't know what to do
the colors in my mind have turned to gray
day and night and rain or shine
it's all the same to me
cause life just tastes like chicken without you

ay, si alguna vez amaste has de saber
que amar a quien te ama puede ser
la razón para vivir y pa' morir
te duele el alma de tanto querer

tal vez me confundí, pensé que tú
igual que yo, sintieras algo así
no sé si yo aguanto más dolor
sin ti mi vida no tiene sabor

Blue Bird

Written By: Greg Brosnan

Blue Bird where are you going?
Blue Bird Where you’ve been?
Blue Bird share your secret
Tell me what you’ve seen

Blue Bird can you see me?
Can you read my mind?
Blue Bird don’t be shy now
Teach your friend to fly

Flying high in a cloudless sky
Dreaming that you are seeing
Through a blue bird’s eyes
Soaring, soaring over everyone
Blue bird spread your feathers in the sun

(Chorus)

Listen, listen everyone
We all should have a blue bird song
Sing and sing your blue bird song
Sky is yours you can’t go wrong

When the darkness puts you in your knees
Take a look up into the trees
Take a breath, sing a blue bird song
One will be by your side before long
