Happy Birthday!

Revolting hero,

Emiliano Zapata

was born

8/8/1879
(killed 4/10/1919)

        Encuchen, señores, oigan el corrido,
        De un triste acontecimiento;
        Pues en Chinameca fue muerto a mansalva
        Zapata, el gran insurrecto

                Encuchen, gentlemen, hear the in excess one,
                Of a sad event;
                Then in Chinameca he was dead without any risk
                Zapata, the great rebel

                    "Corrido de la Muerte de Emiliano Zapata" by Armando Liszt Arzubide
                    (from: Anderer Länder Folksongs of various Countries;
                    Translation from Alta Vista Babel Fish)

Gather around, gentlemen, hear the song
of a sad and important event,
There in Chinameca, Zapata, the great insurgent,
was cowardly murdered.
Corrido de la Muerte

Hear the song sung here: Corrido de la Muerte

Thanks for the translation. Somewhat better than Babel Fish, I think.

I tried without much satisfaction to get a good definition of "corrido." I have a recollection that it means 'ballad' more than just 'song.' No?

In Mexico, a corrido mostly is a ballad, telling a story. In Spain, it may be a romance; a happy song accompanied by guitar. The style also was changed in Mexico, to quatrains rather than the Spanish octosyllabic verses.
