Chúcaro is a term used in Latin America to refer to a wild, untamed animal.

In this song Cocofunka revives the spirit of Soca, a musical genre very popular in Costa Rica during the eighties, mixing it up with the new alternative indie sounds.

The lyrics are inspired in a couple, that while driving gets stopped by the police with restricted substances in their car. In the middle of an existential discussion prior to the event, the man remembers his primitive instinct of rebellion and denotes a mental poem for the instant.



Traigo dibujadas unas flores,
dicen que se llaman las puertas divinas.

De moras, sabores, colores rotos.
Miradas cerca, colores rotos, cojos.

Viene chúcaro mi corazón,
viene chúcaro.
Como un viejo trovador
que vive por la gravedad.

Cosmos pastillas y la policía
y tú ya vas a llorar.
Somos migajas de estrellas antiguas
que viven para soñar, soñar, soñar
jugar, jugar, jugar.
