For more info on the statue and the legendary Aguilar, as well as an amusing introduction to Aguilar songs (with accompanying videos), check out this excellent article by Gustavo Arellano. In a description of the Aguilar hit “Un Puño de Tierra”, Arellano writes:

One of those great existential roars of fatalism that makes being a Mexican man so much fun.

If that doesn’t make you want to read the article, I throw up my hands!

    I go through life wandering
    more more crossing the world
    if you want to tell them
    I am a soul without owner
    I do not care about anything
    because my life is a dream

    I take it when you want it
    not lying I’m very sincere
    and I’m like seagulls
    flying from port to port
    I know life is short
    so I also owe
    the day I die
    I will not take anything
    there to please me
    Life ends soon
    what happened in this world
    the memories no longer remain
    I’m taking dead
    more more than a handful of dirt

    the day I die
    I will not take anything
    have to give life to live
    Life ends soon
    what happened in this world
    the memory no longer remains
    I’m taking dead

    no more than a handful of dirt
