"clandestino" as written by and Jose Manuel Chao....
Vou só com a minha pena da lei que me condena
Correr é o meu destino para fugir da lei
Perdido no coração dessa grande babilônia
Me chamam clandestino sem nome no papel
Numa cidade ao norte eu fui lá trabalhar
O meu amor deixei entre Celta e Gibraltar
Sou uma raia no mar, fantasma na cidade
Me chamam clandestino, yo soy fora da lei

Brasileiro, clandestino
Manu Chao, clandestino
Americano, soy latino
Marijuana, ilegal

Vou só com a minha pena da lei que me condena
Correr é o meu destino para fugir da lei
Perdido no coração dessa grande babilônia
Me chamam clandestino sem nome no papel

Brasileiro, clandestino
Cabeludo, clandestino
Tatuado, clandestino
Marijuana, ilegal

    TranslationTranslation... sort of ;-)

    Is my pen with the law which condemns me
    Running my destiny to evade the law
    Lost in the heart of this great babilnia
    They call me clandestine role in unnamed
    In a town north I went there to work
    My love left between Celtic and Gibraltar
    I am a streak at sea, ghost in the city
    They call me clandestine yo soy outlaw
    Brazilian underground
    Manu Chao, clandestine
    American, Latin soy
    Marijuana, ilegalVou s with my penalty of law that condemns me
    Running my destiny to evade the law
    Lost in the heart of this great babilnia
    They call me clandestine role in unnamed
    Brazilian underground
    Hairy, clandestine
    Tattooed, clandestine
    Marijuana, illegal
