Cabron
Cabron
Cabron
Cabron

I see you in the park
You're always wearing Dodger blue
Mad doggin' and me
And anyone from any other crew
I am small but I am strong
I'll get it on with you
If you want me to
What else can I do
Everyone would take a cue from anything you do
If you want them to
What else can it do
I dont' want to fight
I want to get along with you
This time of nights for singing songs about the local news

Cabron
Cabron
Cabron
Cabron

I come around and make peace get down have a barbecue
Let’s keep the moon awake and do electric boogaloo
I am small but I am strong
You see I’m just like you
If you only knew
That I’m just like you
All the world would take a cue from anything you do
If you only knew
That they’re just like you
I don’t want to fight
I want to get along with you
This time of nights for singing songs about the local news

I don’t want to fight
I want to get along with you
This time of nights for singing songs about the local news

Cabron
Cabron

Cabron
Cabron

Cabron
Cabron

Cabron
Cabron
If you want me too
What else can I do
Cause I’m just like you
If you only knew

Cabron
Cabron

    General CommentIt is "dodger blue" and "mad doggin me", the lyrics are printed in the Cd booklet of By The Way. I think the song is about gangs. The blue color is the Surenos.I think its making fun of gangs, and trying to convey a message that gangs are dumb and it ruining our mexican youth. He is probably trying to say STOP FIGHTING OVER COLORS AND SIDES OF TOWNs YOU STUPID CABRONS!!!!!

    General CommentTake it from a Mexican, guys:
    Cabron has lost its meaning over the years, but in actual original spanish it means "big male goat". So that's right. But it can also be used as an insult for someone who's being difficult, (i.e. "fucking you over") or as an affectionate insult for your friends (like "dude", only if you were to call them "cabron" with malice, it's not "dude" anymore). There's no direct translation to any word in English (and it is NOT one of the worst spanish insults--give your teacher the finger).
    Anyway, this song may be very simple and unsnazzy and simply cheap, but a song doesn't have to be "fun" to be a good song. I heard this once and thought, "You know, this song isn't great, but at the same time, it's awesome." I think all of you who say this song sucks really need to get down and grasp the whole gut of the lyrics and the teasing melody. It's not moving, no, it's pretty simple, yeah. But it's a hell of a song, and I respect the hell out of it. Thanks a lot, RHCP--especially Antony. (That's how it's spelt. Don't get crazy on me.)
    It's definitely about L.A. gangs, but at the same time it's about one specific dude who doesn't like the gang lifestyle and hates having to stand up to the idiots who seem to think they're "right". It's kind of like an emotional song, only at the same time not. I love the twist. It doesn't have to be another Otherside for me to enjoy it--and it shouldn't have to be for you! Get over yourselves, guys.

    General Commentortiz and jayjayjay are right about what Cabron means. It really means big male goat. Among friends, it's not a bad word necessarily (it's like calling one of your friends a bad name but you're joking about it), but among people you don't know, it's a bad word. For example, in English, bitch literally means female dog, but over time, it's become a bad word. And in Spanish, cabron means big goat, but it has now become a cuss word in certain latin american countries.

    General Commenthello.

    I read comments here 3 days ago and i can't stop laughing how this song has been
    misunderstood in your country.
    So i created an account to give you a helping hand.
    Because no one here got the real explanation of cabron.



    cabron can be translated as billy goat.
    (and not as goat, because that would have been "cabrona")



    And one of the meanings is asshole as been told.

    But there's another one more vulgar.
    A cabron, billy goat, is told about a guy because he is "wearing horns"
    In european countries, someone "wearing horns" means that his wife cheated with another guy...
    so in this very song, you have to translate cabron as "cuckhold"



    you can check with this spanish/fench dictionnary
    larousse.fr/dictionnaires/espagnol-francais/cabr%C3%B3n/…

    cabron, can be an animal in a normal meaning,
    or a vulgar way for "cocu" in french tongue...

    "cocu" in french tongue... means "cuckhold" in english
    dictionnaire.reverso.net/francais-anglais/…



    check the lyrics and you'll see that the match is perfect.
    The cuckhold is the very last to be told he is a cuckhold
    the very local news of the lyrics refers as the wife has cheated


    so, when someone happens to learn he is a cuckhold,
    there are two options : punching the other guy... if you're mad
    or get along with the other guy and having a barbecue because all of us are cuckholds !

    I hope that'll help :)

    and C.U cuckholds :)

    dunno who told us about his teacher whom is a spanish native but he should find another teacher... and go do it with his wife if she is not ugly... so that he'll be able to sing this song over him withtout bein caught :)
