KEVIN JOHANSEN - MCGUEVARA'S O CHEDONALD'S (WITH SPANISH AND ENGLISH LYRICS)




This simple and perceptive song is about the tragic commodification of Guevara's image.(I have posted below the lyrics in English and Spanish lyrics of Kevin Johansen's song).
If you are interested to know more about the problematic politico-economic character of Communist politburos and Communist regimes, my book on Post-Capitalist participatory democracy may be useful to you.

MC GUEVARA ’S O CHE DONALD’S

English:

Everybody got beard and hair like him
But they are not like him
Everybody declares to speak on his behalf
As if they were him
I wonder what he would think now
If only he could see
How they make tons of money talking about him
Without knowing anything about him

Everybody buys the t-shirt of Che
Ignoring who he used to be
His name and face do not stop selling ...

Looks like McGuevara's or CheDonald's
Looks like McGuevara's O CheDonald's
He is neither Fidel's brother nor a relative of Pinochet
He was born in Argentina and went to tour
He lived during the times of Evita and despite the musical
Never was he the assistant of Peron the General
I wonder why it was up to him
Being Jesus Christ at the end of the millennium, 
hey, hey, Che


Spanish: 

Todos se dejan la barba y el pelo como él
Pero no son como él
Todos declaran y hablan en nombre de él
Como si fueran él
Yo me pregunto que estará pensando él
Si pudiera ver
Cómo se llenan de plata hablando de él
Sin saber nada de él
Todos se compran la remerita del Che
Sin saber quien fue
Su nombre y su cara no paran de vender…
Parece McGuevara’s o CheDonald’s
Parece McGuevara’s O CheDonald’s
No es hermano de Fidel ni pariente de Pino’che’
El nació en la Argentina y salió a recorrer
No es de la época de Evita y a pesar del musical
Nunca fue asistente de Peron, el General
Yo me pregunto por qué le tocó a él
Ser Jesucristo al final del milenio, che, eh, che
