Guest civil68, you need a better dictionary (So do I, but it is in mine, "Vox Concise College Spanish and English Dictionary").

presuroso, sa- adj. prompt, hasty, hurried, swift.
also presura- f.- anxiety, haste, eagerness.

Mine was published in Barcelona, but I need a good one published in Mexico in order to get the Mexican idioms and words not or little used in Spain.

I have talked with a student here from Mexico. He says that although a simple translation of 'clarin' is bugle, its meaning in the song to Mexicans is more of a clarion call, a call to action.
