Video: "Not Even Once More: Stop Violence Against Women"

by Producciones Cimarrón Thursday, Nov. 24, 2005 at 7:00 AM

As Latinas/os who reside in California, we want to join in the celebration of these days of international activism against violence toward women.

This video presentation intends to convey our condemnation of violence directed to women in all its shapes and forms: from domestic violence and murder, to rape and sexual harassment.

Let’s Break the Cycle of Violence!

Below is a rough English translation to the song chosen for the video:


You showed up on a cold night,

smelling of filthy cigar and gin.

I could feel the fear inside me

while crossing my fingers behind the door.

Your handsome boyish face

has been eaten away by time through your veins,

and your chauvinistic insecurity

is reflected each day in my tears.

Not again, no please.

I’m tired and my heart can’t take it anymore.

Not again honey, please.

Don’t yell, the children are asleep.

I’m going to turn into fire.

I’m going to burn your fist of steel,

and from the bruises on my cheeks, I’ll get the courage

to avenge my wounds.

Mean, mean, mean you are.

You don’t hurt the one you love.

Dumb, dumb, dumb you are.

Don’t think yourself better than women.

The day turns gray when you’re around

and the sun comes out again when you leave,

and I have to swallow the sorrow in my heart

along with my anger.

My pretty little girl’s face

has quietly aged.

Every time your call me a whore

your brain becomes smaller.

mean, mean you are…

mean you are, because you want to…

mean, mean you are…

don’t yell at me, it hurts…

You’re weak and you’re mean

and don’t think yourself better than me or anyone…

and now I smoke a cigarette

and blow the smoke into your heart…

Because mean, mean you are, you…

Mean, mean you are, yes…

Mean, mean you are, always…

Mean, mean you are…


(Spanish singer & songwriter)
