El día de ayer en el programa estadounidense Saturday Night Live, el cantante Justin Timberlake canto la canción de Elton John, “Candle in the Wind” que este cantara en el funeral de la princesa Diana, pero en una versión modificada hablando del recién fallecido presidente de Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, e imitando el acento ingles de Elton.
Ve aqui el video:
I should confess I didnt know Hugo Chavez very well
but as the saying goes, “Hey, a gig is a gig!”
I did a bit of research
and it turns out president Chavez was quite a complex man
so here it goes
everything in this song is true
Goodbye Hugo “C”
you have such a great style as for natch
You were a man of the people, and you liked to wear a sash
You called George Bush the devil when you spoke at the UN.
You said he smelled like sulphur.
And you called him Mr. Danger
And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind
if a candle could pull out two pistols at a press conference
You said the U.S. causes earthquakes and you outlawed Coke Zero.
And, on your shoulder stood your parrot with a matching red beret
You have your own tv show
It was called “Hello President”
Wasn’t about politics just sometimes dance _ made it _
You help to make your country the kidnapping capital of the world
but you also increased milk production by almost 50%
And it seems to me you once gave a speech where you encouraged shorter showers
and another thing you said was capitalism killed mars
as you believed in a civilization that existed in the surface of mars
but capitalism killed all when it was introduced to mars
You were a hero to your people, and you’ll never gave up the fight
We’ll miss you Hugo Chavez because…
