Extranjera (Foreigner)
By Angélica Rahe

They call me foreigner, because I'm not from their land
I don't have a passport, or mode of transportation

I come from far away, searching for my path/road
Inventing a new destiny/destination
I don't know where I'm headed

They call me foreigner, they don't even call me by name
They don't look me in the face, they just turn their back on me

They call me foreigner, they call me immigrant
Because I have crossed a thousand borders
Looking to find myself

They toss me to one side, they toss me to the other side
They pass in front of me, and leave me behind
They toss me to one side, they toss me to the other side
They pass in front of me, and leave me behind

And they call me... They call me..
They call me foreigner
Because I've crossed a thousand borders...

//

Me llaman extranjera, que no vengo de su tierra
No tengo pasaporte, ni modo de transporte

Vine desde lejos, buscando mi camino
Inventando otro destino
No sé a dónde voy

Me llaman extranjera, ni me llaman de nombre
No me miran en la cara, sólo me dan la espalda

Me llaman extranjera, me dicen inmigrante
Que he cruzado mil fronteras
Buscando encontrarme

Me echan por aquí, me echan par'acá
Me pasan por delante, y me echan par'atrás
Me echan por aquí, me echan par'acá
Me pasan por delante, y me echan par'atrás

Y me llaman... Y me llaman...
Me llaman extranjera
Que he cruzado mil fronteras...
