21 Chente Lyrics That Will Make Even The Most Cold-Hearted Person Cry

Throughout his multiple records, Chente created a mystical land full of tequila, mariachis, machismo and long lost love. Some of his lyrics are pretty kitschy but in a good way! He was able to establish an emotional rapport with millions of followers, many of which are Mexican migrants in the United States that have a nostalgic relationship with their home country.

Here’s 21 Chente lyrics (some of which are originally from the great José Alfredo Jiménez), that will make even the most macho person echar una lagrimita.

Ajúaaaaaaaaaa.

1. “Es mi niña bonita con su carita de rosa
Es mi niña bonita cada día mas preciosa
Es mi niña bonita echa de nardo y clavel
Es mi niña bonita es mi niña bonita
Cuanto la llego a querer” From “Mi Niña bonita”

This is a tender song about a girl who could be sung to a love interest or even to one’s sweet daughter. It is a bit uncanny to hear such tenderness coming from such a tough hombre.

2. “Por darle rienda suelta a mis antojos
Por no tener conciencia de la misma
Por eso ayer hice llorar sus ojos” From “La Derrota”

Oh man…. here Chente regrets having let his desires rule his life, perhaps booze and being unfaithful. He knows he lost his love because of his mischievous ways…

3. “Tengo el alma de bohemio y mexicano
Vagabundo y trovador
Para todos mi amistad llevo en la mano
Soy así de corazón” From “Como México No Hay Dos”

An ode to being Mexican… and always being friendly even if life throws curveballs at you.

4. “La barca en que me iré
lleva una cruz de olvido
lleva una cruz de amor
y en esa cruz sin ti
me moriré de astío” From “Cruz de Olvido”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

A very powerful song about how one’s old loves are just forgotten and disappear into thin air as life goes by.

5. “Estos celos me hacen daño me enloquecen
Jamás aprenderé a vivir sin ti
Lo peor es que muy tarde comprendí sí si
Contigo tenia todo y lo perdí
Contigo tenia todo y lo perdí” From “Estos Celos”

Oh man… more than one macho celoso will cry of self-pity after listening to this song about the consuming damage of jealousy.

6. “Vale más un buen amor, que mil costales de oro
Vale más un buen amor, por eso eres mi tesoro” From “Para
Siempre”

A very romantic song, ideal for a wedding anniversary: love is more valuable than gold. Carajo, otra maestro! 

7. “Te di todo de mi te di mis sueños
Yo siempre fui tu dios tu único dueño
Me diste tanto amor en esos años
Juramos ser amantes para siempre” From “Ahora Resulta”

A tune about the pain caused by the unfulfilled promise of eternal love. Sometimes forever is not really para siempre.

8. “Tu sabes que soy parejo
Ya te lo dije una vez
Si yo no te causo penas
No quiero que me las des” From “Alma de Acero”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

This dude is kind of a pendejo: don’t mess with me and I don’t mess with you, he sings. Many machos will find themselves identified and cry for past mistakes.

9. “Hoy vives sufriendo nomas por mi culpa,
perdona lo injusto que fui sin querer,
creyendo que sólo con mucho cariño,
podría darte todo, maldita mi fe!” From “Anillo de Compromiso”

Pain, dolor, ay dolor. A song about a guy who finally acknowledges the pain that he has caused for being a douche.

10. “Perdido en el vicio hundido
dolido del corazón
viviendo de una limosna
durmiendo en cualquier rincón
perdido por un dolido
nomas tomando licor” From “Borracho Sin Cantina”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

Anyone who has woken up with a cruda moral for drinking too much the night before will feel identified. The song is a bit troubling, however, as it takes drinking problems a bit too lightly.

11. “Como paloma que vaga errante
Sin rumbo fijo ni dirección
Navego y cruzo los ríos y mares
Sin paz ni abrigo, ni protección” From “Como Paloma Errante”

A song about the fact that we are born alone and remain alone and will probably die solos como perros callejeros….

12. “Perdóname… Si te he ofendido
Perdóname… Ten compasión” From “Amor de los dos”

A song that makes us imagine a mariachi kneeling and BEGGING for forgiveness in front of his puchunguita.

13. “conocí a tu esposo mientras caminaba
por el parquecito por que aquellas veces caminamos tanto” From “Conocí a tu esposo”

Perhaps the most painful of the lot…. the author meets his old love’s current husband… precisely at the park where they used to promenade hand in hand.

14. “Por eso yo me alejo
no quiero ser tu estorbo”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

Super dramatic… a guy who basically says he doesn’t want to be a roadblock in the girl’s life anymore…. ouch.

15. “La única estrella que tiene mi cielo
se esta nublando
La nube negra de mi desgracia
Poquito a poco le va tapando” From “La Unica Estrella”

A beautiful metaphor of how bad luck chases you like a dark, gloomy cloud….. there is no escape.

16. “Nadie sabe cuanto tiempo
Traía cargando amarguras
Como recuerdo a mi viejo
Y sus tantas aventuras” From “El Señor de las Canas”

A song that anyone that has lost a father or abuelito will feel close too. Tears will flow as Chente describes cotton head viejos and wrinkles that only wisdom and the implacable passage of years can give.

17. “si me quieres
te regalo el mundo entero
si me olvidas
que me lleve la tristeza” From “Ponle Precio”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

Another dolorosa song about forgetting…. if the loved one forgets him then sadness will cover him like a cold blanket from hell.

18. “Con mi dolor
Causando pena voy rodando por ahí
No hay una frase de cariño para mí
Todos me miran con desprecio y con rencor” From “Urge”

Basically a song about a dude that everyone hates… there must be a reason.

19. “Acá entre Nos, quiero que sepas la verdad
No te he dejado de adorar, allá en mi triste soledad” From “Acá Entre Nos”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

The ultimate confession: the guy still loves his ex. He stills adores her, there in the dark corner of his solitude.

20. “De pronto como un loco muerto
Tu boca que viviendo cuerdo no podría besar
Y ansioso por tener tus besos” From “Demente”

Lovesickness and madness go hand in hand and Chente knows it!

pescados hoy en la madrugada” From “Chapala”

This Man Is Using TikTok To Bring Younger People To Old-School Jams And His Fans Are Loving It

@Doggface208 / TikTok

Everyone has that embarrassing uncle. The one who busts out dancing in public, or makes incredibly old-school dad jokes. Embarrassing uncles keep you guessing what they’ll do next and oftentimes you and your cousins are embarrassed by his bizarre behavior. If you can’t think of an embarrassing uncle, chances are it’s you, you’re the embarrassing uncle or tía. This Mexican man from Wyoming is the quintessential embarrassing uncle, except the internet, unlike your cousins, is loving every minute of his antics. 

Tío TikTok might be a little older than the app’s intended audience, but he still managed to make his content go viral, even when he didn’t even know what TikTok was.

Tío TikTok aka Nathan Apodaca is the grown man who’s single-handedly bringing Gen-Z app TikTok, to Millennials. If you’re wondering what TikTok is, don’t worry. It is basically the second-coming of Vine. It is all about short videos that play in a loop for everyone to enjoy. 

Remember Musical.ly? Maybe you remember the times of Vine? It’s hard to keep up with the constantly changing social media landscape as some apps gain notoriety, others merge, and even more die out. As non-members of the Gen Z generation, it’s even harder to keep it all straight.

The old app Musical.ly was rebranded as TikTok and it’s quickly become Gen Z’s app of choice.

If you do remember Musical.ly, you may know that in August 2018, it rebranded as TikTok. And Vine? That app was the victim of an ever-changing internet and suffered a slow death, causing users to feel the dejection of media abandonment. TikTok though has stirred up a revival of short video clips. Only now, it’s even more interactive, collaborative, and downright addictive.

Apodaca was introduced to the app by his Gen Z daughters, and his videos soon went viral.

Tío TikTok was unaware of the popular video-app himself. His daughters, Makyla and Angelia, are the ones who first introduced Apocada’s to the platform. His youngest daughter even helped him film his first video, which quickly went viral. Apodaca confesses that he was stumped as to what to do, or what type of content to publish on his app, but his eldest daughter came to the rescue and suggested he did his usual goofy dances on camera. And just like that, Apodaca turned into a TikTok sensation.

Tío TikTok’s 16-second videos are simple and hilarious, and they touch a chord with young audiences for their humor.

Credit: @Doggface208 / TikTok

Apodaca shares 16-second bite-sized clips of himself dancing and performing to a tune. His perfectly in-sync interpretations, have gained him nearly 90 thousand followers. Tío TikTok usually jams out to classic ’90s gangsta rap like DMX, Dr. Dre, Eminem or Twista and Gen Z-ers and Millennials alike, can’t seem to get enough of his nostalgic vibes.

In his video’s he’s usually goofing around at work or high off weed which has made his content recognizable.

In one of his most liked posts, Nathan is seen sitting on a conveyor belt lip-syncing Sublime’s ’90s classic hit ‘Santeria’ at the factory where he works and films most of his videos. The post earned 26.9 thousand likes and received thousands of hilarious comments like “*OSHA has entered the chat*” by @BertoBitch or “The workers that package for WISH…”

Apodaca is the stoner uncle you never knew you needed on social media.

His hashtags regularly include 420, 710, ‘high’ and ‘gogreen’, stoner terms used to celebrate dabs and cannabis concentrates. His song choices, usually pulled from an unpredictably random selection, often celebrate the plant too. @Doggface208 aka Nathan Apodaca loves weed so much that he, ingeniously, linked his PayPal account on his TikTok bio for donations; “Now accepting donations 4 Flower 🍃 n white Ts PayPal apodacadogg208@gmail.com” reads his profile description. Whether the account is real or not, we’re not sure, but you’re welcome to send a little donation and let us know.

Most TikTok users may be under 30 according to Apple Store download stats, but we’re sure that this guy’s hilarious videos will attract an older demographic to download the app too.

Ranchero Star ‘Paquita La Del Barrio’ Was Hospitalized Due To Pulmonary Complications

We still haven’t recovered from the passing of ‘El príncipe de la canción’ José José and we’re already being hit with more bad news. After much speculation on social media, it has been confirmed that the controversial and iconic singer Paquita La del Barrio was hospitalized this week for pneumonia and pulmonary thrombosis. 

Paquita La del Barrio changed the genre of Bolero music forever with her salty man-hating lyrics and ‘borrachera’ worthy songs.

In her over 50 years of creating music, ‘La Guerrillera del Bolero’, Paquita la del Barrio has gifted us with endless beautifully shady catchphrases to use on shitty exes; “Rata de dos patas”, “Cucaracha del infierno” and “¿Me estas oyendo inútil?” to name a few. Her man-hating words changed Bolero music for women and will be sung in tequila-induced ‘borracheras’ until the end of time. Paquita’s controversial, and sometimes salty lyrics have earned her a few enemies, to say the least, but the truth is that Paquita La del Barrio shattered glass ceilings in the genre of Ranchero, a world of male-dominated, misogynistic music, just by speaking her mind through music.

The feminist ranchera canceled a show for the first time in her career, due to health complications.

Francisca Viveros Barradas a self-proclaimed warrior against ‘machismo’ culture, canceled a show scheduled for this Saturday in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, due to health complications. Francisco Torres, her manager —also known as Paquito— said in a public statement for the press, that Paquita had complained of ongoing chest pains which eventually landed her at Hospital Angeles Lindavista in Mexico City. “Siempre te imaginas lo peor,” he said. It was later discovered that the pain was caused by a pulmonary embolism and pneumonia. The 72-year-old singer was checked into intensive care for a 24-hour watch.

Torres confirmed that Paquita’s health first raised concerns on October 8,  “She started with discomfort, her blood pressure, she said her chest hurt. That night the situation worsened, she couldn’t stand, she complained about chest pain, and the first thing that came to mind was ‘her heart’. A doctor came,  prescribed medication and administered her a sedative, we thought she’d be better by morning. But she wasn’t.”

The singer’s health is now improving and she’s no longer in ICU.

‘Paquito’ went on to describe how the star’s health continued to deteriorate; “The next day she still had chest and back pain,” he said, “we decided to call an ambulance and take her to the emergency room.” Paquita La del Barrio’s manager explained that doctors diagnosed the singer with pulmonary damage due to the varying weather conditions the 72-year-old had been exposed to during her tour of the United States. “We know that weather conditions in the U.S. are more extreme, that was added to her condition, she resisted until her lungs collapsed,” Torres confirmed that Paquita la del Barrio was in ICU on October 10 but is now stable and her health is improving. It seems like the singer is recuperating just fine, but will still need time to heal, which is why she was forced to cancel the concert scheduled for this weekend. 

‘La Guerrillera del Bolero’ has sung against machismo for over forty years, and although she’s received a lot of criticism, her words have resonated with audiences worldwide.

Way ahead of her time, Paquita has fought machismo singing from the stage for more than four decades. At 72, the feminist ranchera has released 33 albums which have been classified by the genre as “duros contra ellos” for her harsh words against men. Amongst her many shade-throwing songs are “Tres veces te engañé”, “Las mujeres mandan”, “Viejo raboverde”, “Hombres malvados” and many more. Her most famous hit “Rata de dos patas”, which has become somewhat of a hymn against men, was the song that sky-rocketed Paquita to fame. After this song went public, she went from singing at bars in the popular Mexico City neighborhood ‘Guerrero’, and moved on to perform on stages internationally.

Paquita’s life has been far from easy, and her story has been turned into a bio-series by Imagen Televisión.

Paquita is an idol for many Latino women who were touched by her words. But her life wasn’t always so glamorous. The singer’s life has already been immortalized in a bio-series broadcasted by Imagen Televisión. Through the series, we found out that she married a 42-year-old man when she was just fifteen. She had two children with him only to find out that the ‘rata de dos patas’ had been cheating on him all along and had another family in a different town. Her love life has clearly not been as successful as her career —which is true of a lot of women in many different industries. The singer, however, is now an artist consolidated as one of the most famous feminist performers Mexico has ever seen.
