Franco de Vita Un Buen Perdedor lyrics meaning

Un Buen Perdedor translated as A Good Loser is a song by the famous Venezuelan composer Franco de Vita, the song was released in 1984 as a part of the album named Franco de Vita. The song is recognized by Billboard as number 15 in the Best Latin Songs of All Times. 

Un Buen Perdedor's lyrics speak about a way many people should deal with the end of a relationship. The song is sung as if the singer is speaking to another person that is silent about what the singer is saying. Franco de Vita starts the song by saying that silent person that he knows that she is planning on leaving anytime soon, he will not stop his partner from leaving, that person can do whatever she wants. Franco de vita tells the person that she should remember that he’s going to be in the same place if she feels like talking to him.

He continues saying that if that other person gave her more love, he accepts it because he is a good loser, he knows how to lose someone, the other person doesn’t have to pretend to be sad about him and Franco motivates that person to leave as soon as she can.

The song motivates us to be mature when a relationship ends up, telling us to not hold any grudge and to accept and be a good loser because maybe today that person is leaving your side but maybe tomorrow you are the one leaving someone else side. Un Buen Perdedor is a good song if you are feeling a little depressed if your boyfriend or girlfriend dumped you.
