Song Lyrics

"Date prisa, date prisa que viene atras de nosotros un reloj que nos devora"

This line is from the song Avion by Kinky. I was a little iffy on the translation and wanted to make sure I got it right. Several sources gave me very different meanings.

Hurry up, hurry up, a big clock is coming behind us to eat us up.

Jajaj había tratado de traducirlo, pero la traducción fue muy rara (big clocks eating people!), por eso no escribía , pero realmente yo estaba en lo correcto!

It's a metaphor of time, so it's a valid image.

Yo diría:

Hurry, hurry, a clock that's devouring us is right behind! o, "Hurry up, a devouring clock is right behind us/right in our arses!".

Saludos, t.

Vi "date prisa" en un libro y ya sé lo que significa porque Elena creó este tema, ¡gracias!
