Summer Sunday

I’ve bumped into this song mid week and i was really looking forward to sharing it this Sunday. I absolutely love it!! It’s not the first time i’ve gotten enormous simple joy out of Diego Torres’ songs 馃檪 Back to basics 馃檪 Needless to say i love dancing on these rhythms and i do, my feet simply can’t stay still when i listen to this. It also brings back wonderful relaxed memories of simple, unencumbered, worry free 聽times. Here’s hoping for a Sunday like this: (Spanish and my clunky English translation below):

Hoy es domingo聽
Como me gusta estar de nuevo en casa
Y despertarme lleno de su olor.
A ese caf茅 de la ma帽ana,
Que siempre corre hasta la cama y duerme hasta el despertador.
Hoy tengo cita con la almohada
Y una reuni贸n con el ventilador,
Una salida con mi perro
Porque el no entiende de pretexto y dejo en pausa mi sill贸n.

Hoy, hoy es domingo, no hay compromisos con el reloj,
Porque hoy, hoy es Domingo no hay nada mejor.

(Rub茅n Blades)

Destapo un vino en la cocina
Y un buen asado espera en el carb贸n.
Aunque tengamos mil problemas,
Hoy descansamos de las penas alimentando al coraz贸n.
Que nadie rompa este momento,
Es d铆a de celebraci贸n,
Hay que brindar por la alegr铆a,
Afuera la mala energ铆a porque ma帽ana lunes se acab贸.

Hoy, hoy es Domingo, no hay compromisos con el reloj,
Porque hoy , hoy es Domingo no hay nada mejor.
Hoy, hoy es Domingo, no hay compromisos con el reloj,
Porque hoy , hoy es Domingo no hay nada mejor.

Dibuje maestro鈥..

Hoy es Domingo y no es bueno pa trabajar,
Hoy es Domingo, el d铆a pa disfrutar.

(Rub茅n Blades)
Ma帽ana es un d铆a de fiesta no me lo discuta usted
Que yo tengo el almanaque en espa帽ol y en ingles.

Hoy es Domingo y no es bueno pa trabajar,
Hoy es Domingo, el d铆a pa disfrutar.

Pero que mira cuando se encuentran dos latinos siempre da igual
Que lunes, que martes, que mi茅rcoles, que siempre Domingo ser谩.
Hoy es Domingo y no es bueno pa trabajar,
Hoy es Domingo, el d铆a pa disfrutar.

Dilo Rub茅n,

(Rub茅n Blades)
El Domingo se va a misa
Patr贸n de lo espiritual, se re煤ne la familia y amigos celebrar,
Lara ra, lara ra , lara ra, lara ra,
Lara ra, lara ra, lara ra, lara ra.
Rico me
Buena Pura Vida !

……………………

I enjoy being back at home
And wake up full of its smells.
Like the morning coffee
Which always reaches me in to bed and puts the alarm clock to sleep.
I have a date today with the pillow
And a meeting with the fan,
An outing with my dog
Because he doesn鈥檛 take excuses and makes me give the armchair a break.

Today, today it鈥檚 Sunday, there are no commitments to the clock,
Because today, today is Sunday and there is nothing better.

(Ruben Blades)

I open a wine in the kitchen
And a good steak is waiting on the coal.
Although we have a thousand problems,
Today we give the troubles a rest and feed the heart .
Let nothing disturb this moment,
It is a day of celebration,
We must toast to joy,
Chuck out all bad energies because by tomorrow( Monday) it鈥檚 over.

Today, today it鈥檚 Sunday, there are no commitments to the clock,
Because today, today is Sunday and there is nothing better.
Today, today it鈥檚 Sunday, there are no commitments to the clock,
Because today, today is Sunday and there is nothing better.
Draw maestro … ..

Today is Sunday and it鈥檚 no good for work,
Today is Sunday, the day to enjoy.

(Ruben Blades)
Tomorrow is a holiday and don鈥檛 argue with me
Because I鈥檝e got the calendar in Spanish and English.

Today is Sunday and it鈥檚 no good for work,
Today is Sunday, the day to enjoy.

But look, when two Latinos meet it鈥檚 all the same
Be it Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday, it鈥檚 always like Sunday.
Today is Sunday and it鈥檚 no good for work,
Today is Sunday, the day to enjoy.

Say it Ruben,

(Ruben Blades)
On Sunday we go to Mass
Patron to the spiritual, then family and friends gather to celebrate,
Lara ra, ra lara, lara ra, ra lara,
Lara ra, ra lara, lara ra, ra lara.
Rico me
Buena Pura Vida! (the real good life)

I hope the video above has no restrictions, just in case here is an image based version made by the DT fan club so you can at least get a sense of the song with images from the clip:
