Track Name: Five Pennies
Translated English:
I want to buy from life
Just five pennies of happiness
I want to have my bliss
paid with blood and tears

I want you in my arms
For just a minute; for us to kiss
And if I lose you after that
I will be in misery

Although anxiety kills me
knowing what you were
and what you will never be
I want to buy from life
Just five pennies of happiness

Original Spanish:
Quiero comprarle a la vida
cinco centavitos de felicidad,
quiero tener yo mi dicha
pagando con sangre y con lágrimas.
Quiero tenerte en mis brazos
tan sólo un minuto;poderte besar,
aunque después no te tenga
y viva un infierno
y tenga que llorar.
Aunque me mate la angustia
de saber que fuiste
y ya no serás.
Quiero comprarle a la vida,
cinco centavitos de felicidad.
