Los Miserables is a Chilean punk band that covered (and translated) "El Scorcho," renaming the song "Chow Chow Sen." The band has released 21 studio albums, the latest coming out in 2018.

Overview

The band formed in the early 1990s shortly after the demise of the military regime of Augusto Pinochet. They are known for songs charged with strong left-wing political ideas and anti-establishment commentary. The band achieved major success in Chile in the mid-1990s, and is well known in other Spanish-speaking countries [1].

The title "Chow Chow Sen" is a transliteration of Cio Cio San, a lead character in Madama Butterfly. Musically, the song is close to a note-for-note performance of the Weezer song "El Scorcho." The song's translated lyrics adapt Rivers Cuomo's words holistically and translate only a few lines directly. They make reference to other Pinkerton songs and explore the themes of "El Scorcho," which include self-doubt, lust, and romantic frustration.

Lyrics

Spanish

Ay cupido, ay calor

Tengo una amiga japonesa
Me dijo si la puedo tocar
Yo no se si será bueno esto
Ya no le puedo mentir
Siempre me da frío estar aquí
Perderme por ahí
No quise ser así
Maldito el día en que yo te vi
Enterraría mis desgraciados besos, si

Hoy estoy muy bien, muy mal
Hola, aquí
Contigo
Estoy loco aquí
Ay, que tal si llegas tu
Yo estoy y te espero aquí

Tenia entradas para ver a los Green Day
Solo te quería invitar
Es absurdo ver tu corazón
Es como una piedra helada
Cae una gota del techo y despierto
Ahora tengo muerte cerebral
Te gusta comer en el chow chow sen
Todo esto esta al revés

Hoy estoy muy bien, muy mal
Aquí, así
Contigo
Estoy loco aquí
Ay, que tal si llegas tu
Yo estoy y te espero aquí

Quédate
No te vayas mas
Estoy bien así
No te rías mas
Estúpido es tu maldito amor
Nunca aprenderé a dejarte ir
Quédate
No te vayas mas
Estoy bien así
No te rías mas
Estúpido es tu maldito amor
Nunca aprenderé a dejarte ir
Quédate
No te vayas mas
Estoy bien aquí
No te rías mas
Estúpido día que te conocí
Mi cabeza muerta
Te espera igual

Te odio y te amo
No lo sabría explicar
No aparezco en tu diario de vida
Solo quiero morir
Eres una china moderna y tonta
Con mochila
Te gusta comer en el chow chow sen
Todo esto esta al revés

Hoy estoy muy bien, muy mal
Aquí, así
Contigo
Estoy loco aquí
Ay, que tal si llegas tu
Yo estoy y te espero

Hoy estoy muy bien, muy mal (Hoy estoy muy bien)
Aquí, así
Y te espero

English

I have a Japanese friend
Who told me I could touch her
I'm not sure this would be good
I can't lie to her
Being here makes me anxious
Losing myself somewhere
I didn't want to be this way
Curse the day I saw you
I would bury my disgraceful kisses

Today I'm really good, really bad
Hello, right here
With you
I'm crazy here
Hey, what if you came over?
I'm here and I'm waiting

I had tickets to see Green Day
I just wanted to invite you
It's absurd. To see your heart
Like a cold stone
Water drips from the ceiling and I wake up
My brain's dead
You like to eat at the Chow Chow Sen
All of this is backwards

Today I'm really good, really bad
Right here, like this
With you
I'm crazy here
Hey, what if you came over?
I'm here and I'm waiting

Stay
Don't go away anymore
I'm good like this
Stop laughing
Your stupid fucking love
I'll never learn to let you go
Stay here
Don't go away anymore
I'm good like this
Stop laughing.
Your stupid fucking love
I'll never learn to let you go
Stay here
Don't go away anymore
I'm good like this
Stop laughing
What a stupid day when I met you
My brain dies
And it waits for you anyway

I love you and I hate you
I cannot explain it
I don't show up in your diary
I just want to die
You're a modern and stupid chick
With a backpack
You like to eat at the Chow Chow Sen
All of this is backwards

Today I'm really good, really bad
Right here, like this
With you
I'm crazy here
Hey, what if you came over?
I'm here and I'm waiting

Today I'm really good, really bad (Today I'm really good)
Right here, like this
And I'm waiting.
