about

This song is about Mexican migration in the 30s to northern Mexico and US. Specifically into the El Paso area, where thousands were deloused and sprayed with deadly chemicals, leading to the El Paso bath riots.

lyrics

Fueron, tiempos de caos

Cuando los trenes llegaron

Familias enteras lavadas

Hijos envenenados

Queremos mano barata

Mineros y campesinos

Pueden entrar los que quieran

A los estados unidos

Trenes, trenes olvidados

Trenes, trenes llenos de esclavos

Queremos mano barata

Mineros y campesinos

Pueden entrar los que quieran

A los estados unidos

Trenes, trenes olvidados

Trenes, trenes llenos de esclavos

Trenes, trenes olvidados-pregon



ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Trenes olvidados (Forgotten Trains)

It was, times of chaos
When the trains arrived
Entire families sprayed
Children poisoned

“We want cheap labor
Farmworkers and miners
Anyone can enter
The United States of America!”

Chorus:
Trains, forgotten trains
Trains, full of slaves

“We want cheap labor
Farmworkers and miners
Anyone can enter
The United States of America!”

Chorus:
Trains, forgotten trains
Trains, full of slaves
