Flat Earth: Slanted chant
Sunday 31 July 1994
'Trinca pro nobis' - roughly 'Nick some for us' - goes the chorus to an austere organ backing. The mock chant, in Spanish slang with Latinised endings, puts the knife into Felipe Gonzalez over the corruption scandals that threaten his political survival.
One 'monk' chants: 'Filipo de Hispalis del capullorum y el bonsai, datis cuenta los mangonis que habemus en la Hispania, los corruptos vayan prontitus Alcala Mecum, o si no te exportaremus a las Galias.'
'Trinca pro nobis.'
Rough translation: 'Felipe of Spain of the roses (his Socialist Party symbol) and the bonsai (his hobby), you realise the crooks we have in Spain, let the corrupt go soon to Alcala Meco (a prison), or else we shall export you to Gaul.'
'Nick some for us.'
