"El Balcón" as written by and Ruben Isaac Albarran....
Tu y yo en el balcón
Que asoma en los plantíos de plátano
Los patrones son han muerto y tu
Sigues trapeando el piso de ajedrez
Ven acá que desde aquí se logran ver
Todas las tierras que ahora nuestras son
Niño zambo heredero seras
Pues de un indio y una negra es su hogar

    General CommentBeautiful jazzy song. About a person of Indian and African descent gaining or becoming the heir to a large plantation. Presumably by either killing the owners in a slave revolt or by taking back the land that was once his. He comes across another servent who is still performing moping duties and tells her that they are free now and the plantation is thiers.
