YMCA (Letra/Lyrics)

Young Man
There's no need to feel down,
I said, Young Man
Get yourself off the ground,
I said, Young Man
'Cause you're in a new town
There's no need to be un-happy..

Young Man
There's a place you can go,
I said, Young Man
When you're short on your dough,
You can stay there
And I'm sure you will find,
Many ways to have a good time..

It's fun to stay at the YMCA,
It's fun to stay at the YMCA.
They have everything for young men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys..

It's fun to stay at the YMCA,
It's fun to stay at the YMCA.
You can get yourself clean,
You can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel..

Young Man - Are you listening to me?
I said, Young Man,
What do you wanna' be?
I said, Young Man
You can make real your dreams,
But you've got to know this one thing:

No man,
Does it all by himself,
I said, Young Man
Put your pride on the shelf,
And just go there -
To the YMCA,
I'm sure they can help you today..

It's fun to stay at the YMCA,
It's fun to stay at the YMCA.
They have everything for young men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys..

It's fun to stay at the YMCA,
It's fun to stay at the YMCA
You can get yourself clean,
You can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel..

Young Man,
I was once in your shoes,
I said, I was -
Down and out with the blues,
I felt no man cared that I were alive,
I felt the whole world was so tired.

That's when,
Someone came up to me,
And said, Young Man
Take a walk up the street,
It's a place there -
Called the YMCA,
They can start you back on your way..

It's fun to stay at the YMCA,
It's fun to stay at the YMCA.
They have everything for young men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys..

YMCA,
It's fun to stay at the
YMCA..

Young Man, Young Man
There's no need to feel down,
Young Man, Young Man
Pick yourself off the ground..

YMCA
And just go to the -
YMCA

Young Man, Young Man
I was once in your shoes
Young Man, Young Man
I was down with the blues..

Datos de esta canción

YMCA es una canción de Village People del año 1978.

Sobre YMCA

  • Las Siglas de esta canción "YMCA" se refieren a "Young Men's Christian Association" (Asociación de Jóvenes Cristianos). Esta es una asociación que pone en práctica los principios cristianos a través del cuerpo, la mente y el espíritu. Actualmente esta Asociación se encuentra en 119 países del mundo.

  • Al faltar una canción para el tercer álbum, se compone este tema en honor a esta agrupación. En ella no hay ninguna referencia homosexual e increíblemente se transformó en un himno gay.

  • Randy Jones, el vaquero del grupo, explica que al mudarse a Nueva York en 1975 se unió a la agrupación Cristiana llamada YMCA y llevó a Jacques Moralis, compositor del grupo, tres o cuatro veces en 1977 y le encantó, ya que era un lugar en el que se podía levantar pesas, jugar al baloncesto, nadar, recibir clases y alquilar una habitación.

  • YMCA es la sigla por la cual se conoce a nivel general a la Young Men's Christian Association, una organización que en español sería Asociación Cristiana de Jóvenes. La canción no sentó nada bien al grupo cristiano que llegó a demandar a Village People, aunque finalmente retirarían la demanda.
