Ignacio Copani - Éramos tan felices (English translation)

English translation

We were so happy

We had the time to make it pass
thinking in something more than in the banknote.
We had toys and desires to play
and not watching the seven o'clock news.
We had a game: we wanted to win
defeating the captain like the zorro
we were looking for a cheap way of travelling
to stamp the old saving notebook.
 
We were so happy
that we didn't realize,
we could live, we could sleep
without alarms at the door.
We were so happy
that we didn't realize,
we could laugh, we could say
what we don't believe now
and that together we could win.
 
We had time to make it pass
with jokes to the fattest or the shortest
and four beetles with the hair until here,
we had songs and a job.
We had a game called freedom,
we played gambling our lives,
I no longer remember the fun part,
but I remember well the wounds.
 
We were so happy
that we didn't realize,
we could live, we could sleep
with the door always open.
We were so happy
that we didn't realize,
what was coming ahead,
what we were going to suffer...
How hard is to be happy in the nineties.
