The little ant (La hormiguita)

English translation

The little ant

I met her an evening
while she hunted boleros with her guitar.
She wore a pair of jeans,
and a small yellow rose blossom in her hair.
 
What are you goin to do?
she asked me while smiling.
"Whatever you want", I answered.
We went to the sea and dove with our dreams.
 
I blinked my eyes, and a dolphin
drew a curly wave in her chest.
 
Then I laughed, and the ice was broken;
we bited each other's fingers
like a viola at a cello solo.
 
You're like a little ant
that kisses me and bites me,
that runs through my back
and lays down in my beard
to study geography.
 
You're like a trapecist
going through my tongue;
and you flowery circus
takes over me and lets me go.
Out of measure,
out of measure,
you are.
 
And I wanted to cry,
but only with my right eye.
She talked about the moon and Chopin,
as I played the Prelude of a Kiss.
 
Then I laughed, and the ice was broken;
we bited each other's fingers
like a viola at a cello solo.
 
You're like a little ant
that kisses me and bites me,
that runs through my back
and lays down in my beard
to study geography.
 
You're like a trapecist
going through mi tongue;
and you flowery circus
takes over me and lets me go.
Out of measure,
out of measure,
you are.

La hormiguita

La conocí una tarde
con su guitarra cazaba boleros.
Tenía puesto un jean,
y una rosita amarilla en el pelo.
