"No One To Depend On" as written by Thomas Coke Escovedo, Michael John Carabello and Gregg Rolie....
Ain't got nobody that I can depend on
Ain't got nobody that I can depend on

Ain't got nobody that I can depend on
Ain't got nobody that I can depend on

Ain't got no one, no tengo a nadie
That I know of, no tengo a nadie
That I can depend on, no tengo a nadie
Ain't got no one, no tengo a nadie
That I know of, no tengo a nadie
That I can depend on, no tengo a nadie

Ain't got nobody that I can depend on
No tengo a nadie
Ain't got nobody that I can depend on
No tengo a nadie

    My OpinionOnly one comment on this song!? What's the deal?

    This is one of my favorite Santana songs. It simply rocks! The transitions and solos are really well done. Lyrics are almost nonexistent, but somehow they fit the music just perfectly; the music does the talking. It starts with in idea - I've got no one to depend one - and proceeds to express more and more intensively with sound. As the song builds, it goes back to the lyrics to reinforce the idea, then back to the music again.

    There seems to be a strong undertone of frustration in this song. I get the feeling that the subject of the song desperately wants someone to depend on, and someone to depend on him. He has a lot to give, but cannot find an outlet for his emotions, thus they grow and grow, and it is starting to drive him crazy.

    General Commentyes one of my favorite santana songs. for me, it has an obsesive haunting quality and some humor at the same time as being very bluesy.

    per the babblefish translator - spanish to english; no tengo a nadie = do not have to anybody.
    that kind of adds a little twist to the lyrics i think. it might be a mantra of sorts. it's what you might say when you are very lonely and need to convince yourself that it is all as it should be.

    what i have been wondering for years is what the opening lyrics are. it's just two words that i can't quite make out. it sounds like - satika teakyla. a reference to tequilla maybe? anyone know what that actually is or mean?
