I'm going off to war (A La Gerra Me Vo Ir)

A La Gerra Me Vo Ir

A la gerra me vo ir;
y no se si vo a venir.
la trompeta va sonar,
a la me kerida vo abrasar.

No me 'spanto la mi mama,
no me 'spanto por mi.
me 'spanto por la mi kerida
ke la vo deshar sufrir.

Embeneado al kavayo,
kon el tiro en la mano;
amanyana a la tomba arrastando,
poveretiko de mi.

La trompeta va sonar,
a la me kerida vo abrasar.
