- LyricsNo es un mandamiento ser la diva del momento
Para que trabajar por un cuerpo escultural
Acaso deseas sentir en ti todos los ojos
Y desencadenar silbidos al pasar
Mira la esencia no las apariencias
- LyricsBuscas en mis bolsillos
Pruebas de otro cari?elos en la solapa
Esta sonrisa me delata
Labial en la camisa
Mi coartada est?echa trizas
- LyricsComo echarte flores
si eres un jardn
con esos olores
me siento morir
