In one of his best songs, Charly García assumed that he, when he was a child, "never was so smart" and also "played the piano like an animal".
That was a utterly lie. In fact he was the typical überkid able to found an off-key string of a guitar just hearing it. As a young man he became a rockstar and today he is a legend. No, srly.He's not Bob Dylan because he's more musician than poet, this don't means that his songs lack of poetry, the point is that his music has a lot of humor. You surely note it seeing his mustache, one half is blonde and the another one is chesnut. One half of his being is awesome, the another one goes nuts.
One of my favorite songs is this one, Estoy verde y no me dejan salir (I'm green and they don't let me go out, supergreen anyone?). When a boy isn't mature enough to go out and have fun at Latin America he's green, like the green firewood that cannot burn well. This is the metaphor that Charly García alludes with this song.
I hope you like it. This is a classic.
