The New Little Princess* (2025)

Chorus:




accent marks off the letters
nonsense for them!

Chorus:
Frijos frijolesLeftovers
Frijos frijolesLeftovers
No estoy feliz de verte de nuevo, ha!I am not happy to see you again, ha!
Frijos frijolesLeftovers
Frijos frijolesLeftovers
No estais mis amigos perdidos, no!You're certainly not my long-lost friends, no!
Pense que t' habian tiradoI thought you were gone
Pero te han echadoBut here you are again
Volver a me de [gasp] nuevoNot a lover, not a friend
Deb' interpretar el papel de "basurero"?
Now do I have to play the part of "dustman"?
