The Black Woman

Spanish

La Negra

Negrita de mis pesares,
ojos de papel volando.
Negrita de mis pesares,
ojos de papel volando.
A todos diles que sí
pero no les digas cuándo.
Así me dijiste a mí;
por eso vivo penando.

¿Cuándo me traes a mi negra?
Que la quiero ver aquí
con su rebozo de seda
que le traje de Tepic.

¿Cuándo me traes a mi negra?
Que la quiero ver aquí
con su rebozo de seda
que le traje de Tepic.

The Black Woman

Little black woman of my sorrows,
eyes like fluttering paper. *
Little black woman of my sorrows,
eyes like fluttering paper.
You tell them all yes,
but you don't tell them when.
That is what you told me;
that is why I live in suffering

When will you bring me my black woman?
I want to see her here
with her silk shawl
that I brought her from Tepic.

that I brought her from Tepic.
