In Mayaguez Lyrics

Salvador
In Mayagüez, a mountain town
Along the western shore
We saw the roofs as we came down
To the asylum for the poor.

The sugar cane whispered its prayers
And lay them on the sea.
El asilo de los pobres
Is where our home will be.

Nuns & children
Pray for us, Santa Maria
Stay with us, Salvador
Pray for us, Santa Maria
Stay with us, Salvador.

Salvador
My mother, Esmeralda,
Worked in the kitchen as a maid
While I played games with the crazy ones
In the flamboyan's light and shade.

Nun #1
Your mother named you for our Lord
But you cry; you wet your bed

Nun #2
This filthy habit must be cured

Both
Look how the stain has spread!

Children
El Meon! El Meon!
El Meon! El Meon!
El Meon! El Meon!

Nuns
We only try to train the boy.
Esmeralda
You're animals at heart!
Nuns
You had our charity to enjoy.

Esmeralda
We'll make another start.
There was a crucifixion, yes
But this time it is my son.
This time it is not you, Jesus
But Salvador Agron.

Salvador
The dark road leads to Heaven
Through the canes in Mayagüez
I walked it, I was seven,
She watered it with tears.

Chorus
Pray for us, Santa Maria
Stay with us, Salvador
Pray for us, Santa Maria
Stay with us, Salvador
