Illegal Cable and Streets With Five Names in Havy Rodriguez's Hialeah Parody Song

Many of us in the 305 make fun of Hialeah. And why wouldn't we? The addresses make no sense, no one speaks English, and it feels like you need a passport just to enter the city limits.

Curiously, though, a lot of cool stuff comes out of Hialeah too. Like Hialeah Fest, which takes place in, ahem, Little Haiti at Churchill's Pub.

Another example: Satirical singer-songwriter Havy Rodriguez's new parody song about illegal cable and other weird shit in the Independent Republic of Hialeah. It's called "Comprate una casa en Hialeah."

See the cut for Havy's video and a full English translation of the lyrics.



Hi, I'm Havy Rodriguez
And I dedicate this song to the prettiest city in the world
Many do not know your geography
Others don't value your economy
But I sing to my people

Buy a house, my brother
Welcome to my Hialeah
Buy yourself a house in Hialeah
Where there's traffic every day
Where every street has five names
Where when it rains, you need a boat, damn
Buy yourself a house in Hialeah
I adore your ghetto-ness
Where houses have up to fifteen efficiencies
I don't speaking English
Yours just in case Maria
Why should I speak English if I live in the Independent Republic of Hialeah

Fried pork belly
Sugar cane juice
Honey berries
Dominos
Café con leche
In every corner 

The rafter who works
Until he's about to explode 
The city raising taxes
In Navarro and Farm Stores, everything's expensive
Go to Sedano's or Presidente

What I earn at the factory isn't enough
The blame lies with Fidel,  damn
How cheap to buy my metro piece of shit

Hey bro
In Hialeah you get lost even with a GPS
You get lost
City that progresses
In corruption
Full of cheap, shitty cars
Accident clinics
In your warehouses, the panties are a dollar
Illegal cable
To save money

Buy yourself a house in Hialeah
Where there's traffic every day
Where every street has five names
Where when it rains, you need a boat, hell
Buy yourself a house in Hialeah
I adore your ghettoness
Where houses have up to fifteen efficiencies
I don't speaking English
Yours just in case Maria

What is it that you want, Maria?
A house in Hialeah

What is it that you want, Maria?

A house in Hialeah 
What is it that you want, Maria?

Cuando yo hago una cancion yo no imito a nadie so its no a parody, lyrics and music are originals. Parody- Humorously exaggerated imitation of (a writer, artist, or genre) but nice article. Thanks
