"El president" as written by and Isabel Monteiro....
Yeah yeah ya
Came from the skies
Burst through the gates
With no mercy or disguise

With their hearts set out in flames
I know; I've seen the master plan
Well I'm just a man
(I am just a man)

I'm not giving in
All the people understand
'Cause they all fell down and prayed
I know;

I've seen the master plan
Kill the President
They killed the President
They killed the President

Came from the skies
(Came from the skies)
In all shades of green
We can always justify

We can measure up your dreams
I know;
I've seen the master plan
Kill the President

They Killed the President
Yeah yeah ya
Yeah yeah ya
Yeah yeah ya

They killed the President
they've killed the President
I'm just a man

    General Commentit is a song about west backed coups, all shades of green being camouflage, and what was coming from the skies where military advisers, the fighter jets, and bombs.
    Chilean coup of nineteen seventy-three was a western backed way to remove the president Allende, a socialist from office. It began with rebels bombing the presidential offices with British-made Hawk Hunter fighter jets. Soon the presidential offices where besieged, Allende refused to surrender, and addressed the nation for a last time, and killed himself (The junta officially declared that he committed suicide with a machine gun, generally presumed to be the machine gun given to him by Fidel Castro, and an autopsy labeled his death as suicide). Some still insist he was murdered by Pinochet's military forces while defending the palace. Shortly after Army Commander-in-Chief Augusto Pinochet came in to power where he remain until the year nineteen ninety. September eleventh of nineteen hundred and seventy three is considered by many as the day that democracy died in Chile. Nixon and the national security advisor discussed the coup, it point towards US involvement.
