Cold-Hearted Man (lit. "Bad Man")

Spanish

Mal hombre

Mal hombre

Era yo una chiquilla todavía
cuando tú casualmente me encontraste
y a merced a tus artes de mundano
de mi honra el perfuma me llevaste.

Luego hiciste conmigo lo que todos
los que son como tú con las mujeres,
por lo tanto no extrañes que yo ahora
en tu cara te diga lo que eres.

Mal hombre,
tan ruin es tu alma que no tiene nombre.
Eres un canalla. Eres un malvado.
Eres un mal hombre.

A mi triste destino abandonada
entable fiera lucha con la vida,
ella recia y cruel me torturaba
y más débil al fin cai vencida.

Tú supiste a tiempo mi derrota,
mi espantoso calvario conociste.
Te dijeron algunos:
"Ve a salvarle."
Y probando quien eres,
te reíste.

Mal hombre,
tan ruin es tu alma que no tiene nombre.
Eres un canalla. Eres un malvado.
Eres un mal hombre.

Poco tiempo después en el arroyo,
entre sombras mi vida defendía.
Una noche con otra
tú pasaste,
que al mirarme sentí que te decía:

"¿Quién es esa mujer?"
"¿Tú la conoces?"
"Ya la veres", respondiste,
"una cualquiera".
al oír de tus labios el ultraje
demostrabas también,
lo que tú eras.

Mal hombre,
tan ruin es tu alma que no tiene nombre.
Eres un canalla. Eres un malvado.
Eres un mal hombre.

Submitter's comments:

Lydia Mendoza was considered the "Queen of Tejano" in the 1930's. It is still a pleasure to listen to her songs. I use her songs to learn Spanish. She was also known as the "Lark of the Border".

Cold-Hearted Man (lit. "Bad Man")

Cold-Hearted Man (lit. Bad Man)

I was still a young girl
when, by chance, you found me.
And thanks to your worldly charm,
you crushed the flower of my innocence.

Later you treated me like all men
who are like you, treat women.
So don't be surprised that, now,
I tell you to your face what you are.

Cold-hearted man,
your soul is so wicked it has no name.
You are a pig. You are evil.
You are a cold-hearted man.

To my sad fate abandoned,
engaged in a fierce struggle with life,
suffering the depths of cruelty,
I was weak and finally defeated.

With time, you learned of my downfall,
how my life had become a road to hell.
Some told you:
"Go save her".
And proving who you are,
you just laughed.

Cold-hearted man,
your soul is so wicked it has no name.
You are a pig. You are evil.
You are a cold-hearted man.

A short time later in the gutter,
I defended my life in a shadowy world.
One night, with another woman,
you passed by me,
and upon seeing my expression, she said to you:

"Who is that woman?"
"Do you know her?"
"Soon you will see", you replied,
"she's a nobody."
At the hearing from your lips the abuse,
you were showing again,
what you were.

Cold-hearted man,
your soul is so wicked it has no name.
You are a pig. You are evil.
You are a cold-hearted man.

Her music is very enjoyable. It is very easy to learn Spanish by listening to and studying her songs.
