They told me that the Yellow (1998)
Chirigota The Pepperoni Family

I have been told that the yellow
it is cursed for the artists
and that color though
It is a sold glory for the cadistas.
And although they receive in return
a whole ordeal of disappointments
they paint their faces yellow
yellow are their hearts.
They have given their lives and their throats,
following where necessary
to the Cádiz of his loves.
Blessed are those who fill with hope,
Every corner, every step of my Carraza,
without caring that never,
go to be champions,
They have earned respect
of all Spain, for these colors.
