I saw her in the city center With a thermos full of coffee Making the local brew On a street called Salvador Allende I gave her a peso and took a sip And sat beneath a palm tree It's so easy to be a criminal When you're trading with the enemy I sat down on a park bench Beside a statue of John Lennon And as I watch the children dancing It's so easy to imagine A world without borders Here, so close to Miami As I smoke a Cigarro Popular Once more trading with the enemy Biking down a country road Only one of many others The people call me companero And greet me as their brother One man has a basket full of mangoes And I'm sure Jesse would agree With each bite I undermine my country By trading with the enemy Watch the oxen pull the carriage And the organic farms abound All the fertilizer's gone But there are other ways to feed the ground Inspiring the world With the strength of creativity See the past and future come together Trading with the enemy At night the salsa's blaring The finest guava juice is flowing Black, brown and white So many healthy faces glowing To experience this society The danger's plain to see I might learn something important By trading with the enemy And I just want to tell you That the enemy's so lovely Such a proud and beautiful people From the mountains to the sea From the clinics to the schoolyards Che Guevarra to Marti We have only our chains to lose From trading with the enemy ---- Created February, 2001 Copyright David Rovics 2001, all rights reserved
