Los Panchos - Cielito lindo (English translation)

English translation

Lovely sky

From the Sierra Morena,
Lovely sky, come down,
A pair of dark eyes,
Lovely sky, of smuggling.
Ay, ay, ay, ay,
Sing and don’t cry,
Because singing, they brighten up,
Lovely sky, the hearts.
Bird, that deserts,
Lovely sky, its first nest,
If it founds it (the nest) taken,
Lovely sky, well deserved.
That beauty spot that you have,
Lovely sky, next to the mouth,
Don’t give it to anyone else,
Lovely sky, because it touches me.
If your moraine mouth,
Was made out of sugar, was made out of sugar,
I would spend my time,
Lovely sky, absorbing it.
From your house to the mine
Lovely sky, there’s no more than a step,
Before your mother comes,
Lovely sky, give me a hug.
An arrow in the air,
Lovely sky, Cupid has launched it,
An arrow in the air,
Lovely sky, that has struck me.

The title translates as 'beautiful darling' or 'beautiful angel', I don't think he's singing about the sky!
