La Mariblanca

En Madrid hubo una fuente llamada la Mariblanca
fuente más bonita que ella nunca la tuvo una plaza
En su pilón noche y día un reloj se reflejaba
era el reloj que en Madrid marca las horas de España
Los relojes tienen alma por lo cual se enamoró
de la bella Mariblanca y un día se equivocó
Era severo y anciano el señor corregidor
y prendió a la Mariblanca con el máximo rigor
 
Y el reloj desde entonces al dar la hora
no se sabe de fijo si toca o llora
Y al dar la hora, y al dar la hora
no se sabe de fijo
si toca o llora si toca o llora
 
De noche cuando a las doce sus manecillas levanta
parece que pide al cielo que vuelva la Mariblanca
Y luego a las seis y media en la alta madrugada
al dirigirlas al suelo parece que es que la aguarda
Y empinándose en su torre ve venir un resplandor
piensa que es la Mariblanca y lo que viene es el sol…
Por eso le pide el pueblo al señor corregidor
que vuelva la Mariblanca para la Puerta del Sol
 
Y el reloj desde entonces al dar la hora
se ha de ver claramente que ya no llora
Y al dar la hora, y al dar la hora
se ha de ver claramente
que ya no llora, que ya no llora

La Mariblanca

In Madrid there was a fountain called La Mariblanca
no other plaza had a more beautiful fountain than it
In it a clock reflected itself night and day
it was the clock that in Madrid told the time in Spain
Clocks have souls and so it fell in love
with the beautiful Mariblanca and one day it was wrong
The chief magistrate was old and severe
and punished Mariblanca with the hightest severity
 
And the clock since then when it gives the time
one doesn't know for sure if it rings or cries
And when it gives the time, when when it gives the time
one doesn't know for sure
if it rings or cries if it rings or cries
 
At night when at twelve it raises its hands
seems like it's asking the sky for La Mariblanca to return
And then at six and half in the dawn
when they're pointing to the floor seems like is waiting
And rising up its tower the clock is seeing a shining
thinks that its La Mariblancaand what comes is the sun.
That's why the people ask the chief magistrate
to return La Mariblanca to Puerta del Sol
 
And the clock since then when it gives the time
one sees for sure that it doesn't cry
And when it gives the time, when when it gives the time
one sees for sure
that it doesn't cry that it doesn't cry
